    Pros

    there are staff that have worked here a long time.

    Cons

    no annual pay for performance increases. Just 2% a year!! terrible
    there's no incentive to go above and beyond in your job. Their pay is not competitive with other nearby hospitals.

    Advice to Management

    take financial care of your employees....they have no problem wasting money on stuff like turning front driveway entrance into grassy area and than to driveway and probably back to grassy area soon.

    I worked at Saint Barnabas Medical Center part-time

    Pros

    hospital service line reputation...good things happen here often

    Cons

    Nursing management commitment to service excellence and teamwork is nonexistent behind closed doors. Administration undermines the potential for a cohesive and productive group.

    Advice to Management

    Work together and realize that you are only as good as your weakest link. All of your efforts cannot make up for a single slacking leader. Intimidating behavior will not make you great. Staff should not be afraid of leaders, they should seek them out and leaders should embrace that. Walk the talk and be as professional as you think that you are. Look at what's happening at the bedside and work upward.

    Pros

    I like working with patients. If that is you, you will get a lot of satisfaction. If it bothers you to get grief from your coworkers and supervisors, there is a touch of that.

    Cons

    Caste system. The hierarchy is strictly stratified and help is expected from below but not given from above.working together is always better.

    Advice to Management

    Organization is top heavy. Lots of managers compared to staff.
