    Pros

    The people at Mercy are like family forever. You really rely on co-workers, and build life-time bonds

    Cons

    Nurse to Patient ratios got progressively worse and patients are so much sicker. Nurses are overworked. Turnover is higher than it should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on keeping nurses and real care for patients. You could have kept some really superior, amazing people if you would have really focused on treating nurses well.

    I worked at Mercy Health System

    Pros

    Very friendly staff, but other than that there was not much to working here. The doctors are super friendly.

    Cons

    No upward mobility. Did not know what to do with their interns. My boss also was very strict and not flexible with my hours. I wanted an internship to do work, that's not what I got out of Mercy.

    Pros

    Relatively easy to work a lot of hours if wanted. There are a handful of great co-workers in each department.

    Cons

    Horrible wages. Management is a joke. Always understaffed & over worked. Favoritism. Schedule conflicts. DRAMA, every. single. day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what they are trained to do (weird)! Delete favoritism. Actually supervise and monitor the employees that are excellent at making themselves look "busy". Build confidence among new hires instead of riding their a** so hard they feel defeated- it makes them less and less eager to impress when they're constantly put down. Actually provide real, solid training. They throw new hires out to the wolves too early because they don't want to cut into their budget and they're always understaffed. Provides an environment where mistakes can easily be made and cost them greater than if they just provided excellent & thorough training. If they hold their employees to a certain standard, than they should too! So when they are constantly screwing up schedules and not correcting certain behaviors within, they never assume responsibility or claim any fault on their behalf. They should be getting write-ups, not those trying to improve the environment and make a difference. Instead the person that peeps up on everyone's behalf gets 'red-flagged' - don't you say A WORD of any disapproval of any kind, they'll make it so miserable at work you are forced to quit. It's childish and pathetic.

    Nothing to say at all. Typical work environment.
