    Pros

    Strong Catholic faith based healthcare organization. Turns no one away when help is needed whether its medical, mental and/or physically.

    Cons

    Not very good in the compensation area, although to some extent its to be expected since the hospitals within the Mercy Health System are smaller community based facilities.

    Advice to Management

    Jump in and get your hands dirty if need be. Be better than dictators and delegators; In other words be part of the solutions and not the problems. Listen and talk to your employees not at them. And for the love of all that's good, give a sincere THANK YOU, those 2 words can go a very long way.

    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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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

    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 Management

    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.

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

    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 Management

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

  11. Not a bad place to start out...

    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 Management

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