Do not work here
Former employee (Former Employee), NJJune 21, 2014
Cons: limited breaks, no vacation time
A typical work day at children's includes doing other people's work. Being harassed on a daily basis and unfair treatment of employees. I learned that if you can manipulate management you can get away with anything such as calling out, taking excessive breaks and doing nothing all day. Management does not monitor what employees are doing. Co workers- – more... some are great and others are hard to work with and are not friendly. Management in denial about issues. – less

Great place to have a career
Human Resources/Finance (Former Employee), Mountainside, NJSeptember 26, 2013
Pros: good people, good work area.
Cons: office politics.
I worked here for two summers and it is a fantastic place to work. The people are friendly and warm, without being fake. The workplace is business but relaxed enough to not be a pin-up all the time.Finally the pay is very good.

Great and fulfiling place to work
Asst to VP & Dir HR/HR Assoc (Former Employee), Mountainside, NJJuly 19, 2013
Pros: satisfaction that you employment helps others
Cons: not enough consideraton for employee travel during inclement weather conditions, because company was non profit, raises were not often.
Children's Specialized Hospital is a rehabilitative hospital for children from ages birth to 21. Working there gives you a huge amount of gratitude for your efforts. Working in HR afforded me the opportunity to meet many persons from all walks of life. It also afforded many opportunities for learning and advancement in many different skills. Overall – more... it is a pleasant place with nice coworkers to work together. Many of the employee recognition programs were interesting to plan and implement and brought satisfaction to each employee. The hardest part of this and many jobs, because of the fast pace in business, time is always the hardest part of the job. – less

as a current employee, cannot say (Current Employee), NJMay 5, 2013
Pros: get to work with wonderful families and can make a big difference in the lives of children
Cons: terrible administration; inconsistent administrative practices; unethical treatment of employees
Administration is horrendous. Company repeatedly has offered incentives and salaries to potential and current employees and then withdrew their offers. For some, it was too late to go back to their previous job or accept another company's offer. Do not be fooled by other reviews. The company puts on a good public face, but long-term employees know the – more... truth. Turn-over rates are very high. If the economy was not so terrible, I would look elsewhere. – less

Wonderful environment for patients and staff
Volunteer (Current Employee), New Brunswick, NJFebruary 15, 2013
Pros: emotionally rewarding
A typical volunteer day consists of setting up the play room for infant group recreational activities. Then participating in the group event and being actively involved with the children. After group, cleaning is done. Then I go around to patient rooms and check to see if any of the children are in need of comfort or just looking to play. It is an extremely – more... fun and loving environment to work in. – less

Only for entry level people- top heavy management and you work to pay those salaries
therapist (Former Employee), NJFebruary 6, 2013
Dont be surprised if 80 percent of your productivity requirements have nothing to do with what you went to school to learn. This is a place for entry level people only. They don't want anyone seasoned or experienced because it might upset their apple cart. Management is heavy- lots of big salaries that clinicians have to make money to support.

Amazing Culture
Intern (Current Employee), Hamilton, NJDecember 27, 2012
Children's Specialized Hospital (Hamilton) is an amazing place to work. The entire staff -all departments included- are welcoming and engaging, and more than happy to explain what they do to anyone who is curious. Days can be on the longer side, with two+ nights a week as a commitment, but working with children and facilitating groups makes working – more... those long hours a lot more bearable. The toughest part of the job is getting paper work done on time, but I've also never been good at paperwork. All in all it's been an amazing experience and a great learning opportunity. – less

Exellent place to work
Supervisor of Long Term Care Therapies (Former Employee), Toms River, NJOctober 3, 2012
You are empowered to work to your full potential, supported by your peers and senior leadership. Children's lives by their corporate values, fun, excellence, innovation, team work, integrity, and compassion. Their culture of caring goes far beyond the patient, it includes the family and staff as well. The children you work with will steal your hearts...and – more... you will leave at the end of the day knowing that you , along with 100 other people, truly made the difference in the lives of the patients and families you serve. – less

Not enough team work
Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), New Brunswick, NJAugust 22, 2012
Cons: only 4 hr per diem shift
No team work in that place. While i was pregnant, most of my coworkers did not want to help me when i needed help and the nurse manager sided with them because she said that i knew the job requirements when i was hired.
