    Pros

    Competitive pay, that's about it

    Cons

    Understaffed, benefits are just okay, management always plays favorites (then again it's mainly a women's field,) never feel like you have job security, staff bullying other staff members with management aware

    Advice to Management

    Consider that this is the healthcare industry. Just as your patients get sick, so do employees. Perhaps you should consider that and not always hold it against them when you send them home for being ill. Also, if staff is expected to do hourly rounding you should keep staffing up and not focus so much on every little bit of charting. Patient care and safety is more important.

    I have been working at Mount Carmel Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have just started at Mount Carmel East, but all of the staff have been very welcoming during my training! Most of the employees that I have worked with seem adept at their jobs and a have a drive to provide quality healthcare. Floor managers (Unit manager, Nursing manager) genuinely care about the employees on 3 Tower. I was just granted a weeks vacation with only giving a month notice because I had just started, but the unit manager made it work so that I could take those dates off. PTO accumulates quickly as well.

    Cons

    Pay could be better, they are starting me out at $11.74/hr. There are shift differentials: $1.00* on the weekends, and I believe $2.50* after midnight (*these are Tech differentials, not sure about other positions). Benefits aren't the greatest and retirement here is marginal. The Mount Carmel healthcare system isn't the most prestigious in Central Ohio.

    Advice to Management

    My managers have been great; however, I know there are many people who complain about certain departments within MCE. My advice to the average glassdoor user reading this and going into healthcare is to shadow on the floor that you get a job offer on. Obviously not everyone has that option and may only get offered a job on one type of floor, but learning what type of specialty floor and the culture on that specific floor can make all of the difference on how comfortable and satisfied you feel working your job in the future.

    I have been working at Mount Carmel Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Started working there 4 years ago and I have changed positions twice. I have had over $5 in raises since I started there. I work three 12 hour shifts and have the rest of the week off. Upper management is wonderful to work with.

    Cons

    The hospital is short staffed most of the time meaning you are taking responsibility for more patients than the average hospital around here. strict dress code that makes the hospital a bit boring. In my unit and position there is exactly enough employees to cover all the shifts so there is very little done if your work schedule conflicts with life outside of work.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more than bare bones staffing to relieve some of the excess pressure on the employees you currently have working for you.

    I worked at Mount Carmel Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Senior leaders are committed to the mission to care for the poor and underserved. Religious heritage and values are more prominently displayed than other faith-based hospitals in the area.

    Cons

    The higher up the ranks one ascends, the more politics influence one's success as opposed to merit. Must have the support of a senior executive to get anything done. Resources seem to be inequitably allocated. So much work to do that professional standards are lax because everyone (secretly) acknowledges there's no way to meet expectations or the needs of stakeholders. Values are less evident in the way employees are regarded.

    Advice to Management

    Speak directly to those in middle management, rather than relying on their superiors, before making decisions with significant impact on the business, employees and patients. Find some way to lighten the workload rather than burning out dedicated associates.
