    I worked at Saint Barnabas Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    I worked at Saint Barnabas Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Can't seem to target any pros.

    Cons

    Disorganized is the best word to describe my experience. From interview stage all the way through training and on the job day to day process.

    Advice to Management

    If you've work there more than 5 years, take management courses or research the recent work culture trends, so you can stay up to date and refreshed when interacting with others. Plus, learn how to enunciate English well if you were raised in another country. It will do wonders regarding communication skills.
