Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Mercy Medical Center - Des Moines full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The nurses are doctors along with patients are much nicer than you would expect to meet in a similiar situation

Cons

The nurses, receptionists and housekeeping are very underpaid since mercy along with Iowa health has a monopoly on health care jobs. Since there are only two large employers they work together to artificially suppress wages for anyone less than a doctor or mngmt.

Advice to Management

Consider showing your employees respect in the form of wage compensation not just hollow words.

    Depending on the area/supervisor it can be a great place to work. Recently received a pay increase to be just slightly lower than competitors.

    Unions will hurt CHI, increase workers benefits to prevent organization of unions.
