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

Pros

Mercy matches some 401k contributions and makes additional 401k contibutions based on tenure, which is very nice. They have clear job descriptions and advancement paths. They have a great work life balance: flex hours and work from home. The custom software department is an Agile shop, so it respects the time of the developer. The coworkers are very empowered to change things for the better.

Cons

PTO, holiday, and sick leave are all in the same bucket. The medical benefits weren't up to par with my last job and have gradually been decreasing in beneftit. There is however a lack of vision from management; coworkers seem to be the major driving force of bettering the custom software department.

Advice to Management

Don't just empower the coworkers, lead them. Betterment needs to come from both management and coworkers.

    I worked at Mercy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Caring for people is the life of Mercy and is ingrained throughout all activities and interactions. No one can join Mercy and not feel passionate about providing the best care and experience. Patient Care is best in the midwest

    Cons

    In the Technology services division leadership is non-committal, kowtow to all requests, reactionary in all directions, and offer very little encouragement for personal growth.

    Advice to Management

    MTS Leadership will need to believe in coworkers to manage, lead, and make the right decisions without micro management and need for every thought to be critiqued and ridiculed. There are great individuals in this division that could bring about great successes if given the opportunity.

    I worked at Mercy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice coworkers. Company has excellent values. MyEducation provides education in multiple areas which keep the staff up to date in the areas of nursing.

    Cons

    Uniforms and conformity of personnel to fit into a mold.. Some of the managers look at those under them in a cookie cutter pattern, where everyone is the same. They do show regard to cultural difference. They cannot seem to comprehend that just because people are Caucasian, that it does not mean they have the same culture. Cultures include age and regional differences as well.

    Advice to Management

    Review you managers ability to retain personnel and the exit interviews of the personnel who have left, instead of allowing poor managers to continue in a role they are not suited for. Managers have a greater function than to just save the company money. They have a duty to the personnel who are in their charge to provide guidance, assure patient safety, and promote satisfaction in the ranks.
