    I worked at Mercy Health System full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Jobs are consolidated frequently putting more work on individuals with no extra pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    It was uneventful. My experience, sadly, was lukewarm at best.

    Pros

    Patient care is the reason that most direct patient-care employees do what they do: Mercy is no exception.

    Cons

    As a pool employee, getting cancelled-ten minutes prior to the shift-was not only unprofessional. It ultimately, motivated me to look elsewhere for pool work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward employee excellence.

    Pros

    The floor that I was on didn't have to float , that may be different now. It was a closed unit.

    Cons

    It was physically demanding. You had to work 8 hours days and every other weekend. Hard to get a decent raise in pay.

    Not an "8-4 or 5:00 Job

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Mercy Health System full-time

    Pros

    Good to work with the patients & good full-time pay w/no overtime.

    Cons

    Expectations of working with more patients if high patient #'s at the time, not accounting for additional time to document with high #'s; high turnover rate with therapy personnel & nursing. They do not pay for over time with full time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire more nurses & prn personnel on "stand-by" for patients. Patients buzzing for long periods before attended to during peak meal & after meal periods. Please allow time for documentation & preparation/copying information to educate patients; also expectation of meetings with doctors/nurses during "therapy times"...difficulty/chaos with scheduling with other therapists.
