I have been working at Spectrum Health full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

It's nice to have resources and people available when you need them -- there is always someone you can turn to for help. There is not as much constant worry about the few dollars here and there - the equipment and personnel are in ready supply.

Cons

Nothing moves quickly or easily in a huge bureaucracy. It's easy to feel like "just another number" or a cog in the big machine. The "rules" are constantly changing, coming down from above. Difficult to find compassion in such an environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop duplicating your work -- find time to understand what it's like in the trenches and have some compassion for the individual circumstances of each employee. The company cannot reach its potential for greatness if we get lost in the details. The employees must be made to believe that their opinions and the way they do their job MATTERS.

    I worked at Spectrum Health full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Growing company with opportunities, great mission, vision and values.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to advance as in health care a nursing degree is preferred for a lot of good positions that could be fulfilled by another degreed staff member.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Every employee wants to succede-you just need to provide the right environment.
