I have been working at Summa Health System part-time for more than a year

Pros

The people I worked with were great for the most part. I miss the patients and I give props to all the ICU nurses.

Cons

Your voice as an employee is not heard by management, at least from my experience.

    I have been working at Summa Health System full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    They usually have very good supervisors on evenings, nights and weekends

    Cons

    Overall, poor management with "bobble head" mentality. They are not usually proactive of their staff. Any support comes from the Physicians. I graduated from their school of nursing and have worked with them for most of my career. I used to be jokingly referred to as one of Summa's biggest cheerleaders....unfortunately that is no longer the case. Except for surgical procedures, my family members choose to be treated at other hospitals. Summa has really compromised their ethics and care of patients. I never thought I would see the day that the Hospital I believed was #1 would fall so low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care, Care, Care!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Start focusing on your staff and the problems at hand. They are your first line of defense. They are afraid to speak up for fear of losing their jobs. Invest in your employees and you will reap the benefits and see Summa soar once again. Morale and faith in who you work for can make all the difference, but that is not really possible when overall, Management is punitive and closed minded. What a shame.

    I worked at Summa Health System as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    The upper management were great to deal with, it was the lower management and office staff looked down on the people in the warehouse.

     I had run upon bad times do to the economy. I had my own company related to construction and all of my clients had either gone under or stopped doing any work and was faced with debt and no work. At that time I was willing to do anything trying to keep up with my financial obligations, that is how I ended up in the warehouse.

    Cons

    Listed above are some, plus some people thought you were stupid because of what you were doing. I had run various projects around the country and large crews of different trades, I always treated everyone the same. When I was on the other side of management working as a temp, I found it very disappointing that people were looked down on by the office staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk a mile in the shoes of your employees before you pass judgement on others.
