    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Interacting with patients was nice. Mostly the staff was friendly. The work wasn't hard but they do expectations when it comes knowledge of the therapeutic diets

    Cons

    No chance for moving up from per diem to part time or full time like I was told there would be. If hospital doesn't have a lot of patients admitted they will call you and tell you not to come a few hours before the shift...

    Advice to Management

    Give the per diem workers a chance for moving up to permanent positions instead of having department monopolized by the full timers

    Cons

    Management is gossip and doesn't respect the employees and they should learn to communicate better to help the staff become one and not against each other,

    Pros

    Management is great and willing to work to help employees. Company thrives off of strong mission statement and will continue to grow.

    Cons

    Many employees here are working to get through school/waiting to find a new opportunity. If this company could transfer to have employees who would like to be there, it will prosper.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do. Management is very positive and tries its best to motivate its employees. In certain divisions they have benefits for those who work hard and all departments should do so.

    Pros

    Reasonable pay and benefits and a retirement plan make for good work incentive, able to transfer positions

    Cons

    every 90 days everyone in the office reviews your performance and decides if you should get a raise or not. Better hope they like you.

    Advice to Management

    my work and loyalty should be worth regular raises. And gossip

    Small family based facility. Great nursing and medical staff to work with.

    Stopped utilizing LPNs to become Magnet Status

    Advice to Management

    Should have offered loyalty to your long time LPN staff by offering a progam inhouse or contracted to grandfather us in to RN staus...

    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 Management

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