    Pros

    Pay was comparable to other hospitals in Monterey County.
    Housekeeping and Dietary staff were extremely pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Worked in several departments, as the hospital is so small, you find yourself being floated often. There is a terrible "backstabbing" culture amongst the nurses if you go "against the crowd" and actually try to do the right thing. Witnessed several HIPAA violations with ER nursing staff that management did nothing about when brought to their attention. Staff voiced blatant disregard for management's rules. LOTS of sick calls and then expected to do twice the work to make up for absences. Upper management fired the only decent leader they had there (Director of Nursing), and managers who have tried to weed out the "bad eggs" were not supported and forced to leave. This hospital needs to FLUSH all their upper management down the toilet and hire new, fresh, positive leadership. This might carry over to the worker bees.

    Advice to Management

    The joke in King City is that if you want to die, go to Mee. Many patients would rather drive the hour to Salinas to get better care. ALSO, HIGHLY SUGGEST you random drug test your ER nursing staff ....I think you'd be quite surprised at the findings.

    Pros

    Pay is excellent for the area

    Cons

    Hospital on verge of loosing joint commission accredidation. Senior mgmt lacks leadership skills. No accountability. Facility is aging and falling apart. They have gone through 3 CEO's, 3 CFO's and more HR Directors in the last few years to count. No direct deposit...come on, it's the 2000's, who doesn't have direct deposit? As previous person said, bad area for living with nothing to do and lots of gang violence.

    Advice to Management

    Start over with new leadership that can lead, hold staff accountable and that has superb finacial background to pull it out of the "red".

    I worked at Mee Memorial Hospital (More than a year)

    Pros

    The salary was very competitive. At one time, there was a very competent CNO but they let her go

    Cons

    Can't keep a nursing director longer than 6 months, very poor leaderships including ceo and cfo. They both need to retire

    Advice to Management

    Replace c suite and maybe it has a chance

    I worked at Mee Memorial Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay was at the top, now has fallen behind surrounding hospitals

    Cons

    As mentioned, we have gone through many changes in HR and upper management! The CEO still can't pull us out of the gutter after almost 4 years, but still doesn't take a cut in his "end of year bonus". Departments lack updated or working equipment. No support for staff.

    Advice to Management

    Need to replace all upper management and HR director. Need competent people who can work together to support their staff, make decisions that benefit more than the CEO's pocket. Invest any potential profit into the facility, and only keep Doctors who actually WANT to work here, not just get a paycheck. Stop letting go our competent doctors
