    High quality patient care is number one with administration.

    I worked at Bronson Methodist Hospital

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, brand recognition in community

    Cons

    Lack of quality leadership, where managers rise (or are promoted) to their level of incompetence. The recent "culture" shift has led to mass exodus, hence the numerous job postings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to be micromanaged to the hilt, have your concerns/complaints ignored and swept under the rug, and be subject to harrassment and unequal treatment, then this is the place for you. Upper management would be best-served by truly rethinking their plan, desire for quality employees, and the "culture" they wish to create. The current trend in promoting/assigning leadership positions to incompetent personnel will only continue to diminish the wonderful environment that Bronson once was. Having been a nurse there during the 90's, then again for over a decade since 2001, I can say without hesitation, that the former Bronson was truly a great company. Sadly, it is not the same place anymore. Hopefully, they will realize that they need to pare down the suits and ties, hire quality employees, get outta they way and let them do their jobs. Patients/families will be happier and healthier, employees will be loyal, and not be as likely to discourage others from joining this organization.

    I worked at Bronson Methodist Hospital full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, nice quarterly bonuses if goals were met, friendly co-workers within my department. Lots of options within the organization job-wise, after 6 months of working in a position you can start applying for different jobs within the organization. I was always being offered hours which was great. The shifts in this department were great for a college student, 4 hour, 8 hour, 10 hour, and 12 hour shifts.

    Cons

    Departments can be 'cliquey' and hard to move around the organization and people are very gossipy, I kept to myself for the most part which helped tremendously.

    Bronson Positivity is a Joke.

    Pros

    Good Job, Great Co-Workers, Decent Pay, Good Hours.

    Cons

    Management treats employees like dirt. They do not solicit or heed intelligent employee input on basic job function. They have a complete ignorance of "life in the trenches" so to speak and are completely about the almighty dollar over patient care. Management does not tolerate any view but their own and actively fire anyone with a creative or alternative opinion. They change their policies and fire if you cannot comply due to personal and ethical core values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have valuable resources in your employees, try listening to them. Unhappy staff equals unhappy customers.
