    IMPOSSIBLE to be hired when you apply online. Within one day I got a rejection email. Only got a job b/c I knew someone.

    I worked at Mercy Health System full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good place to start out your medical career.

    Cons

    You won't get much past a "start out" position. Low promotion rate. Lots of internal "cliques" and will only hire from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for new talent OUTSIDE of your fortress walls. Be daring. Try something and someone new. You WILL find better talent than the stale crusts of nurses and MAs you have around you now.

    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.

    The work-life balance is pretty good. Pay is decent enough.

    Benefits coming up next year are terrible. There's no accountability for some. Some of the practices don't match the core values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold management accountable for actions. More incentives for part-time and prn staff.

    Pros

    Work-life balance, benefits, allowed me to obtain my BS degree,

    You spent a lot of money paying an outside agency to identify Talent within but never reviews internally to promote within.
