Soch

Horrible environment since the new COO took over. Lots of people leaving due to management only caring about themselves, then the patients, but not the employees. Maybe it's better at another hospital but not here. Don't come here.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Management, supervision, pay, workload, expectations, burnout easily

Good place to start

The most enjoyable part of the job was working together with an interdisciplinary team. The pay might not be comparable to other places but that balances out with the great opportunity to start working in healthcare

Pros

Great work environment

Cons

The worse medical company i have ever worked with.

This company is completely unprofessional and does not care for its employees or their patients, they should be disgusted. Employees are only seen by the company as a number. Management is clueless, disrespectful, unprofessional, hostile and if you ask anything of them they either treat you like what you are asking of them is a chore and you can never get answers from management, all they do is push you to the next person in the company that also cannot answer anything or resolve any issues. Employees only care about themselves. You cannot ask anything from anyone, no one is a team player and refuse to lift a finger for anyone other than themselves. Employees are constant complainers, back stabbers and only the employees who are management's little minions get away with everything.

Pros

Nothing, do not work here

Cons

Underpaid, unprofessional, short breaks, hostile management, hostile employees, backstabbers, no help from others, clueless management

Poor Salary

Salaries for the same position across the hospitals vary. Senior administration does not appreciate staff. Raises per year are extremely poor and getting worse

Team value

I really feel like I am apart of a team. I’m valued and treated like a person. An individual. I’m known by my name and called by it. My managers are concerned and understanding.

Pros

Pay, locations, balance of workload

Cons

Needs updated devices

Radiology Uncaring Enviorment

Don't even bother applying to Radiology, you will be sorry. Overworked, underpaid, used and abused. Management cares about themselves and the department is run,haphazard. Recently added work hours. If you want to feel like you have been ran through a ringer than come here. Oh and no matter what great job you do, you'll only hear the negatives. Lots of other facilities that appreciate their staff,not this place

Pros

a job

Cons

Lucky to get a lunch break, always understaffed

Good stepping stone

Good place to learn and start, but management is wishy-washy with advancement. Very much a corporation more than a hospital. I feel that for new graduate nurses it is a good place to learn but if you are in a "lower" position, you will get treated poorly by other. Unless you have letters behind your name, don't expect anyone to remember who you are. On the plus, once you put in your grunt labor, you can make connections. Its a HUGE network and some will take you more seriously than others.

Pros

Nursing staff are warm and helpful

Cons

Solid place, no major complaints

It’s a good place to be and get experience, but definitely very demanding and sometimes overwhelming. The people are nice and the job is secure. I would work there again.

Okay pay, meaningful work

Work is great if you enjoy helping people but, the pay is not enough unless you are high on the ladder or working through an agency. They take better care of temporary workers then workers who are with the company themselves.

Corporate

The company has gotten very big, higher ups push through their management ideas even if they dont work in the the day to day operations of the offices.

Pros

Each individual office has its own pros

Cons

The corporate culture eventually weighs you down

No concern for their employees. Poor work-life balance.

Very critical and punitive environment. Lack of teamwork and acknowledgement. Leadership has their own agenda; and you either with them or against them. Very toxic.

Pretty good

If working around sick people is for you then all go for it they have nice management but the nurses get over worked so they have an attitude most of the time that carry’s on to the rest of the work force through out the hospital

Pros

A lot of pros

Cons

Moody workers because over worked or not enough staff

Decent pay bad management

Pay is decent but management is lost. They have people in managerial positions that lack credible experience. There’s never enough staffing. Sometimes people in management, payroll etc take forever to get back to you and address serious problems (missing hours etc)

Pros

Quarters

Cons

No communication with management

Great coworkers. Always supportive

If I didn't move I would still be there. I felt they were trying to change with the times. Keeping up with the many changes with covid. Having us work from home. Giving us the support we needed.

Social Work Intern

Learned so much. Great program and would recommend any MSW student to pursue Hackensack for their internship/field placement. Again, I highly recommend.
