    Some of the tech constantly fails, which can be frustrating.

    Give more options and responsibilities to work study for them to learn and improve.

    Pros

    Benefits are good! That's about it.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment. Horrible work ethic. Staff quitting left and right (if they haven't already quit, they're looking to get out); sweet to the face and horrible behind the backs. Managers have no clue what is actually going on in their department. Constant bad mouthing of upper management. Your social status is how you were treated. (Doctors treated with loyalty, CNA's treated like peasants)

    Advice to Management

    I have given so much advice and no changes!

    Pros

    I have worked in a lot of hospitals and Meriter is the best I've been in as far as coordination among team members so that patients have the best care. Communication is better than in most places due to electronic scheduling and Vocera communication system. Disciplines seem willing to help each other without the issues many places have. Good focus on continuing education and improving processes for efficiency.

    Cons

    I wish they had more hours to offer me because I like working there.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, beautiful office settings, generally amicable patient base, many informative meetings about upcoming workplace changes, free parking

    Cons

    while there are many informative meetings about upcoming changes, the purpose of the changes is to maintain current patient base and to means to grow the patient base in a region where Meriter is the underdog in the new Obamacare environment. So things are as staffing lean as possible with overtime strongly discouraged yet patient needs are to be met cheerfully but within office hours.

    Advice to Management

    Stop recreating the health industry wheel. Use the experience manifested by advice of your staff from other health competitors instead of out of town advisors.

    Pros

    Pay was decent. Benefits seemed good as well (vacation build up was awesome).

    Cons

    Toxic work environment. Horrible work ethic. Managers, supervisors and staff quitting left and right (if they haven't already quit, they're looking to get out). Specific employees lack empathy for patients and fellow coworkers; sweet to the face and horrible behind the backs. Constant bad mouthing of upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the toxic employees that make daily life intolerable, morale may just go up.


  8. Great people, fair compensation.

    Pros

    Enjoyed opportunities to work on a wide range of projects at a small community hospital. Teams worked very well together and many employees stayed for 30+ years.

    Cons

    Changes in leadership had a negative impact on culture for some resulting in some of the best people leaving in 2014.
