    I have been working at McLaren Regional Medical Center part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work here is the insurance is great and overall decent place to work

    Cons

    overall upper management is kind of tough to deal with there's no stability with upper management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    learn how to retain management more. Some of the best managers are gone and you keep bringing in new people and is not a good look for the facility or staff.

    Former Employee - Nurse Assistant in Lansing, MI

    I worked at McLaren Regional Medical Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Enjoyed those I worked with. Enjoyed the patients and caring for them. Pay wasn't too bad, I liked the 12 hour shifts.

    Cons

    Horrible management, human resources, and union. Very unorganized. Quick to fire instead of simply asking questions after working there for 6 years. Usually understaffed and very busy. Heavy patient load. Management was too worried about making friends with staff members then being a manager. Facility always worried more about being over on daily cost then having efficient staff which in the end the patients suffered from this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very poor efforts in everything, too busy playing the like and dislike people game. Management is there to be management not judge people or try to make friends with staff.

    I worked at McLaren Regional Medical Center

    Pros

    New Equipment, flexible schedule, good medical benefits

    Cons

    Poorly managed on several levels, Low moral of employees, unethical behavior by staff and some management. Long time employees feel threaten by change. Not a healthy working environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the Union and the philosophy they bring with it, reward people for merit, idea and professionalism.
    Look to innovation and companies that are geting it right.

    I worked at McLaren Regional Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place for employment
    Amazing if you are part of the union
    The people that you get to know personally will open up and allow you to network

    Cons

    Management doesn't know anything, and that's why this company is falling apart. This is also why out of the 3 hospitals in Flint - they are know the 3rd best. The hand feed the other hospitals patients b/c of LACK of staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out there on the floors - get to know the place. Sitting in your offices everyday and not moving will not help you in the long run. If you aren't out there experiencing things first hand you will never know what you are truly "managing".
