    I worked at Saint Peter's University Hospital part-time

    Pros

    I worked in a smaller unit and everyone was very friendly to one another. Things ran smoothly for the most part.

    Cons

    The unpaid internship for new nurses is an outdated practice.

    I have been working at Saint Peter's University Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    SPUH has a long precedented reputation in level 3 antenatal nursing in high risk preganancies that offers education and teamwork experience that promotes autonomy and growth.

    Cons

    SPUH is a single stand alone entity that would shine more if collaborated with other institutions.

    I worked at Saint Peter's University Hospital part-time

    Pros

    Managers are nice & I learned to have thick skin.

    Cons

    A lot of the nurses complain too much and talk too much about other people, it brings such a heavy negativity to the environment and makes it miserable for everyone else. There is a lot of unnecessary drama and it feels like the patients are not the priority, but the gossip is. I made only a few friends because I refused to trash talk others and complain about everything. I’ve gone home crying so many times, my experience there was terrible. I did meet one or two incredibly kind hearted nurses and techs but everyone else had the same attitude. If they cut out the petty drama, things would run much smoother. I wish I had quit sooner, it took me too long to realize that being treated this way is not normal.

    Advice to Management

    Stop favoring the loud people, put people in charge who are the most capable, not the most popular.
    For the nice managers, you can’t always make everyone happy, you have to make sure things are running smoothly that should be your priority, not keeping the complainers happy because they will probably still complain.

    Pros

    Staff is committed to the mission of the hospital.

    Cons

    The organization is top heavy and upper management will bankrupt the hospital if someone does not stop them soon.

    I worked at Saint Peter's University Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Colleagues are friendly and the new CEO is great!

    Cons

    - Employees have been in the same positions for decades and not aware of business run in the outside world
    -Lack of communication from Senior Management and people are silos completing projects with no support
    -Lack of technology, pay checks are still paper format no way to view it online, one has to keep all their pay stubs
    -On boarding is horrible
    -Lack of knowledge transfer
    -Lack of resources and training
    -Some upper managers flex their power with no efficiencies on board

    Advice to Management

    - Flip the pyramid chart and trust employees to make their own decisions
    - All the shots should not be made up top without involving the experts who are actually involved in the projects.
    - Invest in your employees
    -Be transparent
    -Communicate effectively
    -Some managers need training on how to conduct business and treat others

    I have been working at Saint Peter's University Hospital part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone that works here is extremely friendly and it feels genuine. It's a place where everyone, no matter their department is treated equally -- there is no sense of a "hierarchy" where nurses are above nursing assistants or people feel above the housekeeping personnel. It's truly a great place to work with great people. Management is always readily available.

    Cons

    In certain units can be shortstaffed which makes it hard.

    Pros

    Catholic Hospital that has not merged with any other hospitals. Diverse community served. Pleasant working environment.

    Cons

    Understaffed by physicians. Not all specialties available. Understaffed by RNs in the outpatient practices with too much emphasis on minimally trained "patient care technicians."
