      I worked at McLaren Health Care full-time

      Pros

      The only benefit is that they are here in Flint and they are a premium employer in the area. I think that says more about the area than what they provide.

      Cons

      2nd rate Health Plan that treats treats their staff as 2nd class employees. Behind the times in their processes and technology. Will talk about wanting to work smarter and not harder, but in practice they try to squeeze as much out of every employee as they can, and then ask for a whole lot more without providing any type of support. NO work/life balance.

        Pros

        Benefits are top notch, last known up to 12% employer match 401k. Night shift premium $2/HR, Charge Nurse $1/HR, Preceptor pay $1/HR. Nursing supervisors take care of staffing. Generous PTO including free next shift sick day with only 1 Call off. Vacation time builds up quick. 12 hour, no on-call shifts. Never have to worry about staffing, nursing supervisors take care of all of it and have Rotating nurses to fill in....

        Cons

        Unable to bank seniority hours as a "per diem, casual" nurse...even if you work part time or full time hours. Casuals do not get benefits at all. Internal positions are based on seniority only and take a really long time working undesired shifts. Ex: casual night shift, 24-36 hour night shift (per pay period, every 2 weeks), 48 hour night shift, 72 hour night shift, 36 hour day shift, etc. Takes multiple years to gain...

        Advice to Management

        Respect goes a long way. Listen to the nurses because they are the ones at the bedside and understand what works and what doesn't. Be a leader not a ruler. Be present!!!! Have enough knowledge to be able to step in when needed. Pay attention. Reward the ones that give it their all because they are the ones promoting McLaren with their excellence and quality of care. Get rid of the bad eggs. A unit needs to function as...
