    Pros

    Competitive salaries & benefits, decent work-life balance as a whole.

    Cons

    With the change in Healthcare, the big picture outlook and security is a little fuzzy. A LOT of upper management turnover recently has employees nervous. Additionally it is extremely bureaucratic.

    I have been working at Spectrum Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of nice people who feel the same way and support each other.

    Cons

    Little to no accountability, leadership is not strategic in its practices or operations, 20 years behind in thinking and technology, low employee morale, unethical practices, no training or development throughout the company, people not honest because leadership says be honest yet comes back to bite you, lack of partnerships and collaborations, is a big company but acts like a small starting company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold selves and others accountable, be who you say you are and don't say who you want to be yet really are not.

    I have been working at Spectrum Health part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nothing for the past 2 years

    Cons

    Work short staffed every day, run from the time you get there till the time you leave

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better wake up & smell the coffee before all your good help is gone! Stop hiring all these "professionals" that are suppose to tell you what the problems are & start actually LISTENING to your employees. Stop telling us "we're working in things" & SHOW us, actions speak louder than words! As soon as I can find another job, I'm out of there!
