    I worked at Mercy Health System full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    Pros

    I love caring for people and the main thing you have a job.

    Cons

    There is no promotions there they work you to death and don't pay overtime instead you have to leave early and if and when you do leave early you might get fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to look into HR. they should all be fired. They get rid of the best workers and don't care about PATIENT first.

    Mercy management is encouraged to achieve their bonuses by reducing cost at the expense of patient care.

    Management will sacrifice patient care for the almighty dollar. :(

    Not an "8-4 or 5:00 Job

    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.

    I have been working at Mercy Health System full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good vacation time for a first job. 18 days your first year. OK medical benefits cost.

    Cons

    Lots of changing schedules. Seniority or job performance means nothing. It is who you socialize with. Lots of hiring from outside the company. I have seen my PCP twice, took over a month to get in each time and been cancelled on both times. Had to wait another month. went to ED and was seen by doctor for 30 secs and just sent me to Walgreens for over the counter medication that did nothing. I would compare the care to a fast food chain. In and out- it's all about the numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give feedback when asked. A few times I have asked upper management what I can do as an employee to succeed within the company and never get an answer, they just dance around the question. Reviews are just cookie cutter reviews, nothing specific to individual performance. I should not have to pay for my own training outside of the company.

    I have been working at Mercy Health System full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed the culture of compassion that was presented, and they truly have some wonderful providers working for them. I loved the doctors I saw under their insurance.

    Cons

    I did not feel that there was ample opportunity for pay or career advancement. I was told raises would never exceed $0.25/year, and that was if the maximum merit increase was received. Employee morale was low and there was an overall attitude of dissatisfaction.
