    I have been working at Borgess Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent co-workers, throughout all Borgess systems they really care about the patients and are kind and considerate.

    Cons

    The patients can be ruthless and mean to staff, but you need to be understanding and just put them first and not take it personally.

    Advice to Management

    Put something in effect which determines if a patient can be discharged for inappropriate behavior, so that the patients can know what is expected of them to try to reduce harassment to the staff members.

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

    Pros

    There's friendly staff for the most part. Close drive to home. Union jobs, even though they're trying to bust the unions all the time.

    Cons

    Management creates an us vs them atmosphere. Ascension health has destroyed this hospital. It's a sinking ship. There's travelers or temp workers everywhere. Your opinions or ideas are either disregarded or management will present them as their own.

    Advice to Management

    Quit and recruit from the hospital down the hill that actually cares about the community.

    I worked at Borgess Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    OK benefits if you only use their doctors. PTO plan is OK.

    Cons

    When you hit a certain age, they start setting you up for dismissal. After 5 years of excellent employee reviews, they nitpicked and set unrealistic quotas in order to claim my work was substandard. Supervisor refused to let me advance in spite of the fact I was the most qualified for the promotion. Managers openly practice favoritism and retribution against employees who express dissatisfaction and move up the chain of command to find help. They pay poorly compared with other healthcare providers in the area. I worked there until 2009, but contacts who still work there say nothing has changed for the better.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting sociopaths in positions of authority and stop the age discrimination.

    Pros

    Everyone is warm and welcoming. There is no drama in the office. Everyone knows their job and does it helping out where needed.

    Cons

    The wage is a bit low. Not a lot of upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Look into becoming more consistent with the wage for what the jobs entail now and not what they used to entail.
