    It was a transitionary step; there was a hiring freeze on full-time employees for the job that they hired me.

    I worked at Mercy Health System as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Providing patient care and a modicum of autonomy in which to do it were given here.

    Cons

    As a per diem employee getting cancelled for a shift--a mere ten minutes prior to that shift--was not uncommon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to all of your employees for feedback-not just administrators.

    Pros

    I love caring for people and the main thing you have a job.

    Cons

    There is no promotions there they work you to death and don't pay overtime instead you have to leave early and if and when you do leave early you might get fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to look into HR. they should all be fired. They get rid of the best workers and don't care about PATIENT first.

    Pros

    Nothing to say at all. Typical work environment.

    Cons

    Nothing to say at all. Let the salary speak for itself. This is for a tech with almost 3 years experience.

    I have been working at Mercy Health System part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the down to earth people who work at the hospital. Working inter-departmental relationships are easy because every is just like you and know their place.

    Cons

    However, working with upper management is kind of a chore. They're concerned with policies and procedures that hinder my job but protects the hospital from potential lawsuits - such is the culture of healthcare.
