    Former Employee - Manager in Hagerstown, MD

    I worked at Meritus Health full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to contribute to happiest days of many clients lives- prom, wedding, anniversaries, etc. Most clients are grateful to be treated with honesty and integrity by giving them advice they can trust.

    Cons

    Expect to work every Saturday and every evening they are open and to stay late to complete next days requirements. Every must know how to sew a button on and do a hand hem stitch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move to location with more and free parking; allow more time off and hire more staff to help give full-timers more time off.

    I have been working at Meritus Health full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good coworkers
    Adequate cafeteria seating
    Parking lots

    Cons

    Wages are not competitive to other area hospitals, employees are treated with disrespect, employees received a 2% raise this year while management voted themselves 11%, upper management snubs its employees, many benefits have been retracted from the common workers while upper management continues to revive substantial raises and bonuses, employees are almost punished for desiring a life outside of work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees
    Compensate them accordingly
    Stop wasting money of trivial items/events
    Realize that the hospital will not work without employees of various levels in different lines of work

    I worked at Meritus Health

    Pros

    Great coworkers and pay was decent.

    Cons

    High turn over always in constant fear of losing your job if you don't know the right people. Also lots of favoritism. If you like to start drama management will never fire you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start caring about quality of care and less about the paycheck and maybe the moral would go up.

    Pros

    At one time was an honor to work at this institution

    Cons

    Seem to be getting rid of all experienced people, anyone over 20 years experience and bringing in younger and inexperienced employees at all levels

    BE HONEST AND COMMUNICATE
