    Pros

    Wonderful co-workers, are very self giving to both patients and each other.

    Cons

    Clinic managers need to be educated, honest and noble.

    Advice to Management

    Should not just take the (not necessarily educated or trained) managers word for issues. Both sides should be heard! The Employess's should be treated as though they are just as important as the "numerous bosses." Way to heavy on the management side. Need to pay better.

    Pros

    I've obtained great experience especially in an ER setting which has prepared me to move on and grow in my career.

    Cons

    Their pay rate is at the low end of the scale for working in a hospital and it was very hard to get steady work. Hours given out based on favoritism a lot of the time.

    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
