    Pros

    The ability to help patients was very rewarding. The team work of the staff made the patients feel comfortable and let them know they were in good hands.

    Cons

    The only con was while working in the Oncology Department, was seeing patients lose the battle of fighting their disease

    I worked at Summa Health System as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    During the day, you will be able to meet many different personalities. Some residents/patients can be the same from day to day but often you see different people coming and in out of those halls.

    Cons

    I personally was not there long enough to experience the downside of the job environment. But every environment comes with a price especially if you are balancing work along with school and normal every day life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I personally never talked to upper management but the human resource manager I did know was good. The manner of speech was excellent. Advice is probably having professional yet personal talking is good to have.

    Pros

    Summa ACH is a quality patient centered facility that provides the most recent and up-to-date evidence based practice. The are committed to their employees by offering educational and professional advancement.

    Cons

    Like many health care facilities Summa must deal with a shortage of nursing and ancillary staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share communication from upper management. Keeping staff FULLY aware of issues make them easier to accept and deal with than keeping them a "secret" until the last minute. It is deceitful and creates lack of trust. For the most part I think "Talks with Tom" are a very positive program.
