Former Employee - Administrative Assistant in Grand Rapids, MI

I worked at Spectrum Health full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Compensation and Benefits are good
You learn a lot about the industry from all sides

Cons

No respect for work/life balance
Administrative employees expected to work 10 hour days, take work home with them, be on call to work in other departments on weekends
Not able to move positions within the system easily if your boss likes you too much to let you go

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize your internal equity and allow staff to move within for career development before you lose your staff to other companies.
Listen to your staff about issues because they know what they are talking about.

    I have been working at Spectrum Health full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Benefits, and it's a job I guess

    Cons

    No advancement, terrible shifts, terrible pay, no respect from management, lies from the get go, promises made just to get you hired...I could go on and on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat your employees like they don't matter. Without them, there would be no Spectrum. Quid Pro Quo is huge in this company as is nepotism.

    Current Employee - Office in Ludington, MI

    I have been working at Spectrum Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good group of employees, great benefits. I really enjoy my manager, my coworkers, and the people I see daily. It is a small community, it is like a family.

    Cons

    No growth within Ludington area, too soon to tell with all of spectrum, they do not pay well. Too many decisions about policy made by the Directors. This should be more consistant

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the ability of employees, not years of service. Have your reviews actually mean something to the employees, and take the time to do them right. I shouldn't be rated the same as the other employees.
