Great company to work for, but losing touch with local values - going more corporate all the time

I worked at Mercy full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Salary and benefits, company values, patient focused care

Cons

All decisions are becoming much more corporate based with less concern for local impact. This is evident in nearly every major decision made in the last 2 years. There is much more discussion of Mercy values but actual Mercy values were more obvious before St. Johns became Mercy. This is especially true in the care of our indigent and low income population. There were also minimal salary increases, though my salary was fair.

    I worked at Mercy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Generous salary. Okay benefits.

    Cons

    Being new to the duties of my position I was disappointed that management seemed to have an unclear vision for my position. My supervisor shuffled from meeting to meeting and was not available to provide much leadership on achieving the "expectations" shared with me when I came on board. Not having clear guidance often put me in the position of having to back track on my decisions once I was able to track down my supervisor and get feedback. It was disappointing and defeating. I often felt as if I was going in circles on certain projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make yourself more available to staff. Be clear on what is expected of employees rather than offer a message of see what you can come up with and we will discuss it.
