Strengthen your resume at MHS, but prepare for advancement elsewhere.

Finance - Mercy Business Center (Current Employee)
Janesville, WI

I have been working at Mercy Health System full-time for more than a year

ProsMany opportunities are available to bolster your resume. Mercy is a great health system for entry-level healthcare professionals.

ConsDon't expect a competitive salary. Some directors can be condescending and quash their employee's potential.

Advice to Senior ManagementFoster your employee's ideas and provide opportunities to grow within the organization. High turnover can become an overwhelming expense.

Great Temporary Job

Trainer (Current Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

I have been working at Mercy Health System as an intern for more than a year

ProsTreated with respect and dignity. The time invested in our training was very impressive. Even as an experienced educator I learned a lot about teaching adults. Tech support was great.

ConsSometimes the trainees were negative about the training environment. Glad I wasn't in charge of training the doctors, rumor was they could be very hostile. The "classrooms" were too small and were often not conducive to the learning environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen working the go live events it was amazing the job the clerical and office staffs did--the pressure and work loads on many of these staff members was crushing. How they managed to be as nice to patients as they were was amazing. As with a lot of companies the lower paid staff interact the most with clients and get the least recognition. These front line folks work hard and are very understanding and take a lot of time with elderly and sick patients.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Staff is awesome

Hospital Staff (Current Employee)
Philadelphia, PA

I have been working at Mercy Health System part-time for more than 5 years

ProsI really enjoyed the down to earth people who work at the hospital. Working inter-departmental relationships are easy because every is just like you and know their place.

ConsHowever, working with upper management is kind of a chore. They're concerned with policies and procedures that hinder my job but protects the hospital from potential lawsuits - such is the culture of healthcare.
