Information Technology Manager (Current Employee) – Cherry Hill, NJ – March 21, 2017
Healthcare is experiencing tremendous growth in technology but the company is reluctant to invest in the staffing required to support all of this necessary expansion. The overall budget is increasing with new applications being added but no investment in the support infrastructure to keep these vital 24x7 systems online.

Kennedy strives to have a good culture, but it fails to really take on the competition (namely Virtua) in any meaningful way. Most business and technology groups are forced to do as much as or more than our counterparts in other health systems with half the budget and less than half the staff.
Great benefits and reasonably competitive pay for most higher job titles, but it seems the lower paying job titles are intentionally targeted to be at or below the mean salary of similar job titles at other organizations.
The bottom line is too much work, not enough people. Poor project management and lack of vision and leadership at the highest levels. The pending Jefferson merger clearly has senior leadership acting in self-preservation.
I love working at Kennedy, but the level of work the clinical pharmacists are being asked to do borders on unsafe. The culture here is truly fantastic, but in today's healthcare environment, help is always a challenge--even moreso here at Kennedy.
work/life balance, family first atmosphere in culture
My coworkers were the best. We all worked as a unit. I wouldn't trade them for the world. The Managers could have been better for a hospital. Working for a Hospital we never had a slow day. something always happened to keep us moving and for me that's what I like.
Challenging and great to work with members of management

Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Voorhees, NJ – October 4, 2016
I worked for Kennedy for 1-2 years, heavy work load with little pay. Starting salary was 11-12 dollars maybe if you are lucky. Co-workers are phenomenal, but the administration and company as a whole is very unorganized. They pick up offices and have incompetent staff. If you acquire more skills on the job, you ARE NOT compensated.
I loved working for Kennedy Heath System. The large company made it a pleasure to work for. I was able to have flexible hours and move around in my position. I always felt supported by management and my co-workers were very helpful. A typical day at work would begin with ADL's with my patients (around 10-15 pts), getting them cleaned up and dressed for the day. Then I would assist the nurse with medications, treatments and charting. Anything from specimen collection to daily needs I was in charge of. The hardest part of the job would be the physical demand of being a CNA. The most enjoyable part would be the rewarding feeing that helping ones in need gives me.
