    I have been working at Borgess Health full-time

    Pros

    Pay for Nurses is pretty good due to Nurse Union. Most of the staff around the hospital are very caring and wonderful people (you always have a few bad eggs wherever you go). Overall the facility is maintained well and some things are fixed relatively quickly. Nurses are given a decent amount of autonomy.

    Cons

    UNSAFE staffing. No nursing unit educators leading to less competent nurses. New Sound Physician group full of travel docs giving UNSAFE orders for patients. I currently would not bring my family here.
    Benefits are lacking, 403b match is a joke compared to other places I've worked.
    Recognition for employment is also laughable, you may get a printed generic "thanks for being her" card after 5 years. No meals provided for staff who have to work holidays. Heck, we had to donate blood just to get a turkey around Thanksgiving.
    Currently a lot of administrative people are being laid of (some with 20+ years of service) less than two weeks away from Christmas. Meanwhile the CEO of Ascension, Anthony Tersigni, is the highest paid nonprofit CEO of around 17 million...

    Advice to Management

    Understand that better staffing for nurses equals better patient outcomes, safer patient care, and better nurse retention. In the long run it helps your budget. We need more permanent doctors, the locums docs do not use the order sets and pathways they're supposed to (probably due to lack of orientation to the hospital).

    Pros

    Great staff. PTO can build up pretty quickly.

    Cons

    Low pay, no raises unless hospital wide cost of living increase, insufficient budget leads to low pay with no incentives and poor-looking environment/old technology. No ability to get promotion in patient centered positions (no levels). Also, expect frequent mandations.
