Staff nurse (Former Employee) – Toms River, NJ – June 10, 2018
Extremely boring shifts, constantly performing the same tasks over and over again. I loved the children but there was no room to advance in your career. Management was not supportive. The Manager had specific favorites and it was obvious. Belittled and spoke down to certain people. I would rather be unemployed than work here again.

When I started, I was promised opportunities for career growth as well as opportunities to make extra money with the "abundance of kids I will have." There is minimal opportunities for growth, and any observation or classes do not count towards our volume report. The volume report is the most important and you must hit 100% of your target for the year otherwise you will be put on job performance review. However, management is disorganized and does not get kids when you ask for them, therefore resulting in low volume. If you are low on your hours, even if you do not have the children that comes from upper management, it is still your fault and responsibility to make up those hours. You get paid vacation days, but the number of billable hours for that day do not count towards volume so taking vacation or sick days is stressful. Depending on the office, management is disorganized and overwhelmed with work. Emails are often half-answered or very often answered in a borderline rude manner depending on the manager's mood. There are clearly favorites who are not given a hard time, whereas everyone else often needs to defend their actions and/or given a hard time when conversing. Everyday I dread opening my email for the fear of what my boss might have to say. I used to enjoy my job but lately I have no motivation to get up and go to work for this company.
very hostile work environment. horrible management. disrespectful to employees. very emotionally draining company.no support for employees. ***NOT*** an open door policy as stated. hr never responds to employees issue's or concerns. Management has no respect for hourly employees in the somerset location. employees are advised the not to even speak to each other
Behavior Technician (Current Employee) – New Brunswick, NJ – April 4, 2017
Greeting patients and their families. Provide daily support after patients long day of rehabilitation. I've learned about the comprehensive rehab plans required for patients in various programs at out in-patient facility. Management is helpful and resourceful. Hardest part of the job is not being able to take away the pain children are experiencing and lose of a patient. The most enjoyable part of my day is providing emotional support through listening and providing activities that allow patients to focus on other tasks.
Asst to VP & Dir HR/HR Assoc (Former Employee) – Mountainside, NJ – July 19, 2013
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 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.
satisfaction that you employment helps others
not enough consideraton for employee travel during inclement weather conditions, because company was non profit, raises were not often.
Therapist (Former Employee) – Hamilton, NJ – January 27, 2017
The culture here is clearly one where they do not invest in their service employees. It is like a revolving door for clinicians with high productivity demands, limited raises, & unattainable employee review standards. Management is top heavy with too many cooks in the kitchen at times. The clients are wonderful to work with but the overall employee morale stinks.
Manager of Patient Access Services (Current Employee) – Mountainside, NJ – July 9, 2015
What we do means more to me than the job itself. We serve thousands of kids each year and help the reach their full potential after some traumatic experiences. The CEO is approachable and I admire her as a woman.
Director of Business Development (Former Employee) – New Brunswick, NJ – April 9, 2018
CSH is a wonderful facility that does incredible work for it patients and their families. It was wonderful to be able to be part of a team that brought sick and injured children improvements to their lives.
CSH was an amazing place to improve the lives of children from birth to 21 years of age. The therapists (all disciplines) were not only extremely knowledgeable, they were confident and willing to work with new grads to ensure growth.
Great staff, collaberation and fun work environment
Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – Toms River, NJ – October 29, 2017
everyone treated the children wonderful, worked together as a team, management is always willing to help. nurses were usually always willing to come in to fill a shift when needed, I would have to say the hardest part of the job was to sit with the sick kids, usually with no families or family restrictions. I do have to say watching the nurses and cna's secretary's,management, dietary, DCP&P, housekeeping, therapy services interact with the children is very heart warming. it takes a special type of person to be so kind harted
