    I worked at Mercy Health System (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amount of Accrued time off

    Cons

    Being able to use it. Not there for patients. The ER is a mess. Patient beds are set up around the nurses station and in the hall when at capacity...unless the state is coming in to audit or do a walk through.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together.

    Pros

    Great location in Conshy
    Nice people

    Cons

    Finance Leadership composed of egomaniacs. You either work in Finance and are great or you're dirt. HR VP thinks she's fabulous and makes sure you know she's has her doctorate. HR has been scaled back to meet her demands. No one cares if you leave or not. Cafeteria food is really pathetic.

    Advice to Management

    Hope that you get nice packages when Trinity tosses you out on the street

    Pros

    Good place to start out your medical career.

    Cons

    You won't get much past a "start out" position. Low promotion rate. Lots of internal "cliques" and will only hire from within.

    Advice to Management

    Look for new talent OUTSIDE of your fortress walls. Be daring. Try something and someone new. You WILL find better talent than the stale crusts of nurses and MAs you have around you now.

    Pros

    I love caring for people and the main thing you have a job.

    Cons

    There is no promotions there they work you to death and don't pay overtime instead you have to leave early and if and when you do leave early you might get fired.

    Advice to Management

    You need to look into HR. they should all be fired. They get rid of the best workers and don't care about PATIENT first.

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

    Pros

    Relatively easy to work a lot of hours if wanted. There are a handful of great co-workers in each department.

    Cons

    Horrible wages. Management is a joke. Always understaffed & over worked. Favoritism. Schedule conflicts. DRAMA, every. single. day.

    Advice to Management

    Do what they are trained to do (weird)! Delete favoritism. Actually supervise and monitor the employees that are excellent at making themselves look "busy". Build confidence among new hires instead of riding their a** so hard they feel defeated- it makes them less and less eager to impress when they're constantly put down. Actually provide real, solid training. They throw new hires out to the wolves too early because they don't want to cut into their budget and they're always understaffed. Provides an environment where mistakes can easily be made and cost them greater than if they just provided excellent & thorough training. If they hold their employees to a certain standard, than they should too! So when they are constantly screwing up schedules and not correcting certain behaviors within, they never assume responsibility or claim any fault on their behalf. They should be getting write-ups, not those trying to improve the environment and make a difference. Instead the person that peeps up on everyone's behalf gets 'red-flagged' - don't you say A WORD of any disapproval of any kind, they'll make it so miserable at work you are forced to quit. It's childish and pathetic.

    Nothing to say at all. Typical work environment.

    I worked at Mercy Health System part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Starting pay isn't bad. If you want a lot of hours as part time, you can get them. Part time does work around personal schedules most of the time.

    Cons

    Too many egos and bullies (the doctors and nurse mostly, but some of the receptionist as well). If your not part of the old gang, watch out. You get blamed for everything and told how to do things wrong, then they deny it. People go out of their way to embarrass a person in front of patients. Some locations are worse than others. There are a few that are pretty decent. The formal training, if you can get it, is great. The onsite training is pathetic at best. Large turnover with this place. I talked to the formal trainers about situations (some were HR people) and nothing changes or gets done. One person even told me that some of what was brought up has been going on for years. Good luck if you decide to work there.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of personnel that can't be bothered with policy and start enforcing policy even with the team leads. Team leads can be the worst at bullying. They always defend their long time buddies and make accusations about the new person. Starting listening to the complaints and watch the turnover rates at some locations. Something needs to be done. Smile class should not be for only doctors. Everyone should allowed to take it. Many need it. Employees have been told that if you recommend someone for the smile class, it will cost you the job. WAKE UP AND LISTEN AND PAY ATTENTION.
