    Pros

    Many opportunities are available to bolster your resume. Mercy is a great health system for entry-level healthcare professionals.

    Cons

    Don't expect a competitive salary. Some directors can be condescending and quash their employee's potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster your employee's ideas and provide opportunities to grow within the organization. High turnover can become an overwhelming expense.

    Former Employee - Receptionist
    Former Employee - Receptionist

    Pros

    Starting pay isn't bad. If you want a lot of hours as part time, you can get them. Part time does work around personal schedules most of the time.

    Cons

    Too many egos and bullies (the doctors and nurse mostly, but some of the receptionist as well). If your not part of the old gang, watch out. You get blamed for everything and told how to do things wrong, then they deny it. People go out of their way to embarrass a person in front of patients. Some locations are worse than others. There are a few that are pretty decent. The formal training, if you can get it, is great. The onsite training is pathetic at best. Large turnover with this place. I talked to the formal trainers about situations (some were HR people) and nothing changes or gets done. One person even told me that some of what was brought up has been going on for years. Good luck if you decide to work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of personnel that can't be bothered with policy and start enforcing policy even with the team leads. Team leads can be the worst at bullying. They always defend their long time buddies and make accusations about the new person. Starting listening to the complaints and watch the turnover rates at some locations. Something needs to be done. Smile class should not be for only doctors. Everyone should allowed to take it. Many need it. Employees have been told that if you recommend someone for the smile class, it will cost you the job. WAKE UP AND LISTEN AND PAY ATTENTION.

    Former Employee - Registered Nurse in Saint Louis, MO

    Pros

    Wonderful people and well maintained campus

    Cons

    Benefits are terrible, you would think working for a hospital system would offer better coverage and not make you pay an arm and a leg for anything you need done. Especially since you are forced into using their providers. Tip: Less money on landscaping the place and more on your employees health.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better "manage the managers" programs, there is no system of checks and balances for bad leadership.
