    Current Employee - Dispatcher in Toledo, OH

    I have been working at ProMedica full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work schedule is somewhat flexible.
    Very easy going environment, for the most part.
    I enjoy my coworkers.

    Cons

    For being a healthcare provider that runs its own insurance company, they do not offer fair coverage/rates for employees.
    Wage rates are extremely low and unfair; Emt's and Paramedics who work transport make approximately $2 per hour less than competitor companies, even companies that generate less money than ProMedica.
    Dispatchers are responsible for initiating patient transports via 3 helicopters, 12 ambulances, and 5 ambulettes, yet are paid an average of $7 per hour less than competitors in the area.
    Management gives major lip service, they do not even pretend to have employees best interest in mind.
    High turnover rates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cross train employees; road crews can see what it is like to work in the comm center, and dispatchers can experience work on the road. Hopefully it would lessen animosity between departments.
    Provide training to dispatchers more than just when they are new hires; provide incentives to those who choose to obtain higher education.
    Compare our numbers to those of Mercy Health System, and pay competitive wages.
    Pay a bonus to people who reach milestones with the company: 5, 10, 15 years and so on.
    Encourage employees to maintain a healthy life style: provide free memberships to the ProMedica fitness center.
    When there is a job opening, encourage human resources to fill the position quickly with a qualified candidate; do not simply hire a person just to say the spot is filled.
    Crack down on people who about the attendance policy.

    I worked at ProMedica as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The pros of ProMedica is how they treat there patients, clients, and workers. I have received so much respect when I had worked in their AP department.

    Cons

    I believe there aren't really that many cons to working for ProMedica. You create the environment you work in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe that you look forward and seek to network with those around you. ProMedica opens those doors not just in the medical side but also in the management level.

    I had a lot of opportunity for various experiences and projects, my supervisor was amazing and I felt like my department really cared about me.

    Cons

    The pay wasn't great; it's a non-profit health system, so at the lower level I supposed that's to to expected.

    Low pay and overly micromanaged

    Current Employee - Sales in Toledo, OH

    I have been working at ProMedica full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    health benefits and earned time off

    Cons

    low pay, overly micromanaged, poor management, policy bound, slow to make decisions, trying to branch into preventative wellness and retail, but not giving enough attention to it and zero budget for marketing it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire good people then let them do their job. Do not micromanage and get hung up on policy and "how it's always been done." If providing preventative wellness and retail, give a budget for marketing it.

    I have been working at ProMedica

    Pros

    A number of employment opportunities. Positive programs for employee development. ProMedica is a solid company that functions well.

    Cons

    I have had experience with significantly under-valuing employees and their contributions. Rate of pay always seems to be a grumble for employees; however this employer is significantly under the average when evaluating the compensation they provide their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your people on the front lines.
