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

Pros

Compensation and Benefits are good
You learn a lot about the industry from all sides

Cons

No respect for work/life balance
Administrative employees expected to work 10 hour days, take work home with them, be on call to work in other departments on weekends
Not able to move positions within the system easily if your boss likes you too much to let you go

Advice to Management

Recognize your internal equity and allow staff to move within for career development before you lose your staff to other companies.
Listen to your staff about issues because they know what they are talking about.

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

    Pros

    Good group of employees, great benefits. I really enjoy my manager, my coworkers, and the people I see daily. It is a small community, it is like a family.

    Cons

    No growth within Ludington area, too soon to tell with all of spectrum, they do not pay well. Too many decisions about policy made by the Directors. This should be more consistant

    Advice to Management

    Look at the ability of employees, not years of service. Have your reviews actually mean something to the employees, and take the time to do them right. I shouldn't be rated the same as the other employees.

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

    Pros

    Large company with a lot of room for movement and advancement. Pay is average for a nonprofit hospital system. Work life balance is great with flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Pay is all based on years of experience and not necessarily on performance. Too many meetings with little output. Seem to spend half the day in meetings and preparing for meetings that have little output.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to pay and advance high performers and get rid of under performers.
