    Pros

    Tons of Great experience lots of medical knowledge to learn. Alot of the Attendings and Docs are approachable and are willing to answer questions if they have the time. and others are willing to give you letters of recomm for NP school or nursing school if they know how well you work.

    Cons

    The Leadership is the worse ive come across the my departments morale was at a all time low a very very bad leadership team. without naming names 8 out of the 10 leaders really dont care and its obvious. A icecream social isnt going to fix the problem. your own your own there and a very neg environment full of bad behavior and US Vs THEM. coupled with very low pay and a fight to use your hard earned PTO. anyone over thats been there for more then a few years is burnt out or they abuse the system and find ways to not work. Leadership knows who they are and cough it up as well they are your co workers rally them to help... mean while good workers get a hard talking to if they have a off day. Every one young is heading for the door (During day shift) and the night shift is like the wild west at less the night shift policed itself better but just as many burnouts. they have two people there that are openly and proud White Extremist (NJ Militia members)

    Advice to Management

    The culture is horrible you cant raise morale with ice cream or pancakes. you need to address the burnouts the people that take smoke breaks every 25min while their patients are jamming on the call bell. come out of your office and see your Culture youve made not just hide in there and gossip with your girl clique. watch how there is a community of rude nurses a atmosphere of cruelty youve lost double digits of good CCT young good workers have you stopped and ask why. not only CCT's also nurses and others go running after 2/3 years. you NEED to address the build up of burnouts

    I worked at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    To be honest, the extra bit of cash you can make. Nothing else. The benefits are way too expensive and not competitive.

    Cons

    The job itself is not bad, but the department, staff, and the people running it are pure rubbish. Management lacks organization and the department is currently understaffed. So there are times that no one is scheduled to work. The job does not pay well at all and hard working and knowledgeable staff are not appreciated or acknowledged, leading to negative feelings and outlook. Current staff are jaded and want to do the bare minimum so you get frequent call outs and no shows...again leading to an understaffed department. The mobiles, which are suppose to help make things run quicker are useless especially since they malfunction frequently and have no internet access. Overall, the running of the department doesn’t embody what I thought RWJ was all about and what I learned in the mandatory two-day orientation (again rubbish). This place is a business first, well-being and compassion are near the bottom of the totem poll. I would not recommend that anyone apply to this job or department. Good luck.

    Advice to Management

    Be appreciative of your staff. Let them know that you value them. Management must do more. First and foremost be organized and get rid of the extra forms. Instead of investing all that money on those useless mobiles that barely work, you should have invested money in iPads, which patients can seamlessly sign and approve consents. The department would run smoother and forms would be uploaded like that. Think outside the box. Better yet, ask the staff who do the work what can make the job easier.
