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

Pros

Reasonable pay, good benefits, felt like a safe environment, patients communicated that they felt they were getting good medical care. Shuttle between hospitals for employees was helpful. Free parking a plus.

Cons

No raises for over three years; lots of layoffs of absolutely wonderful, hard working employees while those that didn't want to pull their weight kept their jobs. Truly felt as though the rich got richer at Summa.

Advice to Management

Summa used to be very "patient first" but now appears "management first." Patient complaints have really increased since all of the first-line employee layoffs. I left the company because I was afraid I'd be next. In addition, the High/Medium/Low review was difficult to swallow. Some departments were allowed to grant "high" while others were not. It was extremely unfair and unbalanced.

    Pros

    make pretty good pay and hours.

    Cons

    Too strict. Managers don't mind mandating you in a hearbeat and I don't like to accomodate people for vacations at all. Very strict.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep employee's, stop being so strict on everything. We are human and not robots.


  2. "Understaffed in every department except Executive suites."

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

    Pros

    Nice people to work with and conveniently located. Decent medical benefits.

    Cons

    Pay well below market, no raises or bonuses in 4 yrs (except for management). Contribution to 403K is quite low. PTO means you have to earn paid holidays. No room for advancement. Upper management expects miracles and over works everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Have reasonable quotas and departmental goals. Pay based on the real market value of employees and more people will stick around. If executives get raises or bonuses ALL employees should too.
