    I have been working at St. Joseph’s Healthcare System full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Supervisors are very understanding, always willing to help and encourage employees to move up in their respective field.

    Cons

    Due to the high population of Hispanic speakers in the surrounding areas of the hospital, most front line staff members are required to speak Spanish. All new employees, are required to work every weekend.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees who are required to work every weekend, at least one weekend off a month to avoid burnout or frustration.

    I worked at St. Joseph’s Healthcare System full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    -Great people to work with who become friends.
    -Friendly staff overall in the different campuses.
    -Great amount of experience learned working in any unit that you get hired for or floated too.
    -Can establish good rapport with interdisciplinary team members.

    Cons

    -workload can be very heavy at times, especially since its expansion
    -staffing office needs to get better training, when call outs or shortages are present, their simple reply is you guys call your people. So along with having to do your work, now the staff nurse or charge nurse has to spend some time going through the list of staff nurses to call and find someone who may/may not be available, as if enough work isn't done on the unit (taking time out of patient care to make calls ,when the staffing office can make calls instead)
    -When concerns are brought up to managers from a group of staff reagrding behaviors at work such as insubordination from certain staff or unavailability of staff who may be 'hiding away at times', sometimes managers don't take it seriously. seems consistent throughout certain units when discussed amongst nurses from different units. Appears that the concerns aren't worthy enough from our standpoint but if the opposite staff has one complaint on nurses, than nurses are immediately having their attention called. Makes for an unfavorable morale amongst staff.

    Advice to Management

    Provide different and ongoing training to managers throughout the year, especially on impartialness, consistency amongst listening to all staff and addressing all concerns instead of brushing them off.

    Pros

    St. Joseph's depends heavily on the talents of its employees and allows for new ideas and creativity. Staff is extremely knowledgeable about their area of expertise and willing to share information with others. SJ Paterson is a teaching hospital so you are always learning what is new and SJ Wayne is an extremely staff-friendly environment.

    Cons

    Needs more flexibility in allowing working from home for those who can easily do this. Also should think about building another parking garage since there is a cost to park ($13.85 - $18.46/month depending on salary) and would be nice if there were more indoor parking in bad weather.

    Advice to Management

    Communication from the CEO needs to be consistent to ALL staff via email on a weekly basis about what is happening and updates on the vision and goals and path that is being taken to get there.
