    Pros

    With all buildings in one place, there is so much opportunity to be anything you want at Spectrum Health. Excellent place to work. People are great, working together as a team, from all different departments to provide the best care possible for patients and family's. Every Dr. Is very well educated. Would recommend for any treatment needed.

    Cons

    Starting from the bottom and having to build to what you want to do within the hospital. This is good though because it encourages you to get a degree and better yourself. Better yet, Spectrum offers a tuition rembersment even more of a reason to get the degree you always wanted.

    Pros

    Spectrum Health is supportive to professional nurses who are moving their career forward through graduate education. The EXCEL program rewards nurses professionalism financially. Physicians and nurses in the surgery department work as a team to provide excellent care to their patients.

    Cons

    The hospital intermittently requires nurses sign up for mandatory overtime shifts.

    Pros

    Fantastic work environment
    Growing organization
    Community impact
    Leadership understands current healthcare landscape and is making excellent decisions.
    Incredible amount of opportunities

    Cons

    While there aren't very many cons about this organization, I would say that while there are tons of opportunities to grow, it can be hard to make transitions once in the hospital.

    Advice to Management

    The right tools are in place to grow from within, but those tools don't seem to be utilized the way they could be. There is a lot of great talent already inside the organization.

    Pros

    Large company, lots of opportunities.

    Cons

    Large company spread out over too large an area, pay not high enough for what you are asked to do, insurance still expensive, even owning their own insurance company.

    Advice to Management

    Couldn't give advice never met anyone high enough up, current department managers do not listen to other employees ideas, and there are a lot on gray answers to questions, when asked for direct information.

    Pros

    there are some really great and really smart people that work for spectrum. the biggest pro is the people you work with, the customers that you play a part in improving daily lives, and the things you learn on the job

    Cons

    work/life balance leans towards work. (some) leadership. highly political unfortunately, leadership not always clear on direction. seems like choices not always made on a leadership level as to what will beneift the customers the most.

    Advice to Management

    decrease with all the politics, and passing the buck. there are really great people working here with really great ideas that should be heard

    Pros

    Steady employment. Good health benefits.

    Cons

    Low pay, low moral, constant call-ins and mandated shifts. Tries to be a police dept but fails at every level due to inability to enforce laws under constant oversight of risk and legal depts. Nonexistant chain of command due to the ability to circumvent direct reports entirely to HR. Despite required job duties, position does not hold MCOLES certification. Immature coworkers.

    Advice to Management

    Check your egos and politics at the door.

    Pros

    Teamwork, family-like Co-workers, competent staff. The boss has an open door policy and takes concerns seriously.

    Cons

    Standardization isn't standard at all.
    Lacks site specific new employee training. less staff + more workload = overwhelmed staff.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize new employee training across the board instead of this site specific Bologna.
