    Message to Kettering: Try investing in your employees instead of playing monopoly in Dayton

    Pros

    Wonderful co-workers with amazing work ethic

    Cons

    Pay is far below industry standard, management very unorganized and promotes a culture where employees are scared to lose their jobs, very low morale in some busy areas, employees who work hard and deserve full - time positions get nothing but empty promises and taken advantage of because Kettering won't pay their benefits (which are lackluster to begin with).
        Here's a thought: instead of Kettering buying every medical building they can get their hands on and plastering their "k" everywhere, how about you invest in your employees who make your company what it is. Your company is only as happy and healthy as your employees, and they are not feeling half the pride of being part of this organization that they once did.

    Pros

    I work with some seriously wonderful people. I've went so far as to recommend kmc to my friends and family because I consider it to be a really descent place to work. The days are long and busy, but overall rewarding. Its the employees who make the experience worth while. My manager, in particular, is an angel and I'm thankful she hired me and has such confidence in me.

    Cons

    I personally would not come here (kmc) for care, but I also have no other hospital to compare it too. My mom, who has worked for various hospitals within the KHN for over 10 years tells me its almost completely different from the place she remembers. Apparently KHN used to be wonderful in almost every way. Now the opposite is true. The employees are stressed because there is simply too much to do and not enough help. It has been my personal experience that several units in the hospital operate short staffed on a daily basis. More work is often given out without added help, or the subtraction of previous assignments. Also, hourly charting is a joke.
    I could go on, but what it boils down to is this: higher pay and better benefits would make us all a lot happier. After, of course, hiring a few dozen more employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a few days every month or so to work the floor. Especially you fat cats at the top who make 500,000 or more a year and then tell us whether you deserve your huge paychecks and bonuses while the rest of us make a tenth of that, or less.
    Also, and again this is for the company, stop trying to expand so quickly. Re-invest in your staff and the facilities and programs you have now. Its not all about cutting cost and expanding. Sometimes I think about what Mr. Kettering himself would think about this company.

    Really, a great place to work in a caring environment

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Kettering Health Network

    Pros

    Regular raises, caring environment, all insurances and compensation package with the exception of the employee medical insurance are top notch, yearly employee satifaction surveys to keep management thinking about how the help feels about the mission, Christian based healh model (somewhat), highly rated Cardiac and Trauma services, many employees have natural all day smiles, patients are really taken care of well despite the Cons

    Cons

    Poor employee healthcare insurance, no centralized comunication system between Doctors and Nursing staff, Poor RN to BSN tuition asst. and incentive program, yet they are pushing the BSN upgrade, poor computer support program (many still have Windows XP)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider, more intensley, programs and limitations to foster employee respect by the middle management. KHN has a overall great crew, yet I've seen some of the better ones not rendered the respect they deserve. There is now a cloud hanging over KHN because of this neglect. We love the mission of this organization, but some bad feeling are lurking in the shadows.

    I worked at Kettering Health Network full-time

    Pros

    It is hard to think of pros for this organization. Most locations are easy to commute to in regards to local highways.

    Cons

    Most of the better jobs were not competed, rather they were given to church members or family member regardless of experience or qualifications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address the issue with nepotism; employees with skills and potential are not convinced there is any upward mobility.
