I have been working at Mercy full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Coworkers. Most nurses go into healthcare to give back to the community; consequently they are giving 130% every day and are a pleasure to work with. Unfortunately this redeeming quality is exploited by management with low salaries and very little personal growth. Nurses are working long hours and extra shifts to make ends meet. They are often tired and prone to illness because of the constant stress.

Cons

Salary, poor management, PTO is slow to accumulate. Continuing Education is done on-line, and can and should be done in a convention setting, especially with important topics like stroke, trauma and surgical changes. Lunch breaks and breaks in general are almost non-existent. Food/gift shop/coffee shop purchases are charged full price to employees. No perks whatsoever.

Advice to Management

Consider being a leader in health care. Be the voice of change in the treatment of patients. Staff according to patient need, rather than census. Treat the "boots on the ground' ie: nurses with the respect they deserve rather than "it sucks to be you" attitude. We all know there are nurses graduating daily and willing to be TRAINED in your facility. But this not the voice of change. This is the voice of "you are disposable". Start that trickle down effect with bloated salaries in management being reduced and increases on the working class. Be a leader, be a leader and voice for CHANGE!

    Pros

    This is more than a job, it is a ministry in serving others. The employees are treated like it's a big family, not just 1 of thousands of employees. Daily prayers are shared over the whole hospital. You are encouraged to sit and visit with the patients to help them feel important. They really care about the patients that are in their hospital, they are not just a way to make money.

    Cons

    I can not name any cons at this time. I'm very happy working for Mercy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work that you do!

    Pros

    Supportive hospital environment. Good workers.

    Cons

    Low starting pay comparative to other cities in MO. Scheduling was often inflexible.

    Advice to Management

    You will retain better staff if you pay them comparably. Also, you need to make sure that the schedulers take into consideration the employees' needs. This was the number one complaint.
