    I worked at Saint Joseph Mercy Health System part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They have done a lot of renovations lately and have relatively decent equipment to work with. The people you work with are typically good and willing to help out.

    Cons

    The management is very unorganized and expects perfection. There is no real positive feedback. I was there for 6 years, worked hard and pitched in during times of change and need for undesirable shifts. When it came time for promotion though I got overlooked because of silly misunderstanding with a new physician. Rates of pay could be higher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your hard working employees when you realize who they are. Be more flexible and open to hearing the staff out. The amount of constant changes in protocol coupled with the high expectations is simply unrealistic. Reinforce positively, especially during low morale times or no income raise periods. It will go along way to keeping people happy.

    Salary scale in line with region.
    Ample resources provided to complete tasks.
    Middle management works hard to provide support.
    Good PTO package.
    Good medical and dental.

    Cons

    Discontinued pension match.
    No performance based raises.
    Typical corporate bean counting and employee cuts .
    Regional management and employee cut backs stresses the work force .
    Ever rising cost of benefits.
    Cost of living raises don't cover the cost of living.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your employee's to get an A .
    Forcing employee's to do 2 or 3 jobs can bring stress up and the grade down.

    I have been working at Saint Joseph Mercy Health System full-time

    Pros

    Can get health insurance working as a temp. Good transitional position and/or stable environment if you're not the breadwinner. Finance department much more professional than other departments.

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Certain (most) departments managed by dictatorship. Ridiculous rules, treat respectable adults like children.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider who you're hiring for management positions. Too much focus on bottom line when too many people are unhappy.
