    I worked at Mercy Hospital and Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent wages, good people to work with for the most part

    Cons

    Horrible management on Rehab floor, required me as a nurse aid to stay over in the morning after a night shift if the day shift aid would be late (15-30 min is no big deal but 2-3 hours is a little out of hand). This happened on multiple occasions but she was never let go - a few managers tend to play favorites. I was a great worker and still maintain friendships I made at the hospital due to this but I was nearly terminated for tardiness on three occasions although the other aid was never on time. Would float me to three different floors in the course of one night or pull me from my floor to go to another hospital at 11pm. More cons, but I believe these speak for themselves. Oh, and I was in college for nursing at the time I was working these night shifts but if I missed a class because I had to stay over, it was no problem for my manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a better eye on the decisions that your managers are making with certain employees that they may just not get along with. You could end up losing a very good employee due to horrible management, and many nurses on my floor quit or retired early when this manager came on.

    I have been working at Mercy Hospital and Medical Center full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are good people here and good pay & benefits.

    Cons

    The job that I started with has been completely transformed since being under the new management. Unrealistic expectations and lack of communication and support has soured what used to be an excellent part of working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take a page from Sis. Sheila who had shown great appreciation for the work that everyone does. Listen to the people in the frontline's trenches. There are things we cannot control with improving the hospital but there are many of us who would love to be able to share our ideas without the fear of incrimination.

    Cons

    Racism, Job security, Forced shifts and Call, Contract violations and breach of Civil Rights

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your leadership should not threaten the livelihood of others just because management cannot keep or retain employees in the field of Cardiology. Unfair Case Load, unrealistic expectations, threatening employees only works if you are bigger than that person. Your not.
