    I have been working at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Only pro is tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    Worst hospital ever, this place is one of the dirtiest hospitals I've ever seen. Most of the employees are nasty and unfriendly, which in turn makes the patients nasty towards you. The benefits are garbage, the food just keeps getting worse every day, it's like they hire the homeless people down the street to come and cook, and then charge you 3x the price for a piece of wet cardboard they call food. They have no respect for employees whatsoever, they charge us every paycheck for parking at an unreasonable price, your not allowed to use your sick time, they pay you minimal wage for the degree you have, any raise you get is below $.05, the doctors treat everyone like their pool boy, and many many more disgusting things. The security guards think they are real police officers and question who you are when you walk in the door even if you are wearing scrubs and they see you every day, they are mostly wannabe cops who got rejected by the police force and take it out on the patients and employees. All the administrators are way over paid for doing nothing and they keep laying off the more important people with direct patient contact who actually are the backbone of the hospital.

    Advice to Management

    Stop filling your pockets and start respecting your employees. This is a hospital for patient care not a business for collecting money.

    I have been working at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great salary, great support, lots of resources, nurses are very skilled, knowledgeable and confident, nurses are very savvy and hard working , you won't die here because of neglect or lack of knowledge

    Cons

    Culture of kindness is meaness; staff from all level very impatient, rude and aggressive; stressful work environment, work is very hard and heavy and overwhelming, patient care is extremely heavy.

    Advice to Management

    Be more realistic with what you ask for. You cannot want the same level of care with less nurse and more acuity
