    Magnet, advancement in nursing and chances to grow.

    I have been working at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital part-time

    Pros

    Love the patients and work I do!

    Cons

    Everyone argues petty things (day shift vs night shift.. Who's lazy who isn't! RN never want to have to travel with a patient even when stable they lie to the other departments to not bring them

    Advice to Management

    Consider the people who have be lifers in rwj working through good and bad... Recognition would go along way... And somethin. Aside from cafe (rwj-tony) money as the bonus that's just rude and unexceptable.

    I have been working at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent location central NJ and near mass transportation.

    Cons

    Poor working conditions for employees. No lounge kitchen or locker rooms to change or shower and no call rooms for long emergency call nights.

    Advice to Management

    Improve employee working conditions. When employees work long hours and can take few breaks its important to have a break room kitchen and a locker room.

    Pros

    The base pay and shift differential is good. Meeting and interacting with patients can make your day. Busy so shift flies by fast. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Very busy to the point of skipping breaks are common. Corrupted department. Co-workers can be lazy and dramatic. Working in the Emergency Department is a stressful environment. Management play favorites. Be prepared to be treated as a child and not an adult by management and co-workers who have been at the company longer. Overall, this job does not hold fulfillment or satisfaction one may be looking for in the healthcare field. "Culture of kindness" is non-existent amongst most staff and is instead filled with lateral violence.

    Advice to Management

    Quit treating your employees like a number and show them the respect they deserve! Fairness is a huge issue that needs to be addressed. Hire more staff.
