    I have been working at McLaren Health Care full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They pay more than another local hospital. Extensive benefits.

    Cons

    Their systems are so outdated. They are not upfront about scheduling and things are changed all the time. Severely short-staffed with a high turnover rate as a result which management either doesn't realize or doesn't acknowledge. Policies and procedures are not consistent across all McLaren campuses. Flint and Bay might as well be different planets and let's not even get started...

    Advice to Management

    It will continue to a revolving door and you will continue to get poor employees if you don't get more workers. Update your procedures. Ditch some of the paper. No other hospital around here uses that much paper. Have consistency throughout ALL campuses.

    I have been working at McLaren Health Care full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The best thing in the company is the employees

    Cons

    Have you seen the meme that is a take on the movie Office Space, the one that says, Yeah, we're going to be short staffed forever so if you could just work yourself to death that'd be great? well its like that.

    Advice to Management

    STOP BUYING EVERY P.O.S. HOSPITAL THAT IS FOR SALE! start investing in your current properties and fire at least half of yourselves.

    I have been working at McLaren Health Care full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great co workers, clean environment, management tries very hard to look out for employees, decent benefit package.

    Cons

    Short staffed more than is optimal, some hard times getting employees in.

    Advice to Management

    My experience with management was good. There are times that management was stretched thin too.

    Current Employee - Nurse 

    I have been working at McLaren Health Care

    Pros

    Good learning place to start as a new nurse. Good PTO time and a nice retirement package.

    Cons

    Low starting wages at Oakland campus, short staffed 50% of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff, wages comparable to other hospitals.

      I have been working at McLaren Health Care full-time

      Pros

      Good size hospital, so not too crazy all the time. my lab colleagues are awesome despite horrible management and being overworked. The hospital has a nice environment, but there are places that need updating, especially the lab.

      Cons

      Overworked, short staffed, under appreciated. Haven't been there long enough to see things improve really, but from what I hear, things have been this way for a long time. Managers are clueless and have no involvement with their employees or know how to do benchwork. This is an issue because they can't help when questions are asked or when we are swamped. This also leads to nothing...

      Advice to Management

      Listen to employees, be more involved in actual work. We need managers who know what they are doing in lab.
