      Pros

      It's an established employer in the community of Newark, NJ.

      Cons

      Changes are happening and some for the better and often times not. They tune in to the challenges that are coming up on the radar but still do not walk the walk.

      Pros

      They have great healthcare benefits.

      Cons

      Literally everything about this place is a con, the last straw was seeing how they threw nurses to the slaughter during COVID with zero regard. Also very toxic nursing culture. The bullies run this place.

      Depends a lot on your floor/unit

      Mar 31, 2021 - Registered Nurse in Newark, NJ

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great place to learn. Really sick patients. Sometimes you feel like you're really making a difference in people's lives. Did pretty well with PPE throughout covid.

      Cons

      Profoundly dysfunctional institution. Some managers can't retain staff and end up pulling nurses from other units all the time. Everyone has a bad attitude. Benefits are okay but you don't vest in pension for 10 years and the health insurance is great but extremely expensive. Finances are opaque.
