Pros

Coworkers. Most nurses go into healthcare to give back to the community; consequently they are giving 130% every day and are a pleasure to work with. Unfortunately this redeeming quality is exploited by management with low salaries and very little personal growth. Nurses are working long hours and extra shifts to make ends meet. They are often tired and prone to illness because of the constant stress.

Cons

Salary, poor management, PTO is slow to accumulate. Continuing Education is done on-line, and can and should be done in a convention setting, especially with important topics like stroke, trauma and surgical changes. Lunch breaks and breaks in general are almost non-existent. Food/gift shop/coffee shop purchases are charged full price to employees. No perks whatsoever.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider being a leader in health care. Be the voice of change in the treatment of patients. Staff according to patient need, rather than census. Treat the "boots on the ground' ie: nurses with the respect they deserve rather than "it sucks to be you" attitude. We all know there are nurses graduating daily and willing to be TRAINED in your facility. But this not the voice of change. This is the voice of "you are disposable". Start that trickle down effect with bloated salaries in management being reduced and increases on the working class. Be a leader, be a leader and voice for CHANGE!

    Pros

    Flexible timings, laid back environment, if you know how to do it.. work is pretty easy. One doesn't have more than 4 hours of work per day :).

    Cons

    People are not rated by their skill sets. Jobs always offered to a level lower than the applied. Interview process is bad. No Bonus.. no decent Off times.. cant switch sick time to PTO.. one has to be really sick to use the sick days, cannot take a casual sick day off. People talk about the 7 things on Mercy ways that people are expected to behave and no one follows it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please have management that can assess people on their skillset and how one likes them. Interview process is pretty bad, i have seen my manager hire pretty low skilled people in the team who cannot do/say stuff on their own. HR should do a good job reviewing the past experience of prospective candidates (too many freshers with fake experience). Please follow mercy standards in the MTS as well.
