    I worked at Mercy full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers, supervisors, and most managers are very supportive and work hard , and want the best for everyone around them. You can pray at work and say things like Merry Christmas, God bless you, have a blessed day, etc.

    Cons

    The pay could be better I know that it's hard to get top notch people and keep them because of the lower pay. Some of the higher ups tend to want things done that are not realistic and say that they listen to your ideas when in reality they don't hear you, and only want a yes answer to their ideas, and don't even try to explain why certain things may not work, it will fall upon deaf ears, why? because they went to college for 4 years and think they have everything figured out, when actually they have forgotten how the real world works, or they never knew because they were always spoiled and never had to work with regular people.

    Advice to Management

    Don't sit there on your high horse and say you listen, and hear what your people say, we are not stupid we are down in the trenches everyday, we see what works and what doesn't work. Most of us care, and are open to change, but you running numbers doesn't work, your not hearing what is really needed. HR needs to quit being so afraid of actual discipline of co-workers that do wrong, I've seen several cases of them giving someone a slap on the hand instead of firing them when it needs to happen, I believe its due to the amount of paperwork that goes with firing someone, but if there is ample documentation of the issue, just do it.

    I have been working at Mercy (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Are able to voice concerns to management freely.

    Cons

    Some aspects of patient care are limited and controlled by others that have never been in a patient care situation.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your nurses to use their experience to further enhance patient care.

    Pros

    Knows and lives its Mission. Opportunities for advancement. Nice balance between guidance and support for how to do your work; with autonomy and personal input into how it's done.

    Cons

    Can be long hours. Always a risk of being down-sized if you're in a non-clinical position (but that can apply to all healthcare organizations). Most salaries are mid- to low- market, unless you're a physician.

    Slow HR process, upper management doesn't always do as they say they do, older co-workers either overworked or devalued.

    Don't devalue the experience of your older co-workers.
