    I have been working at Mercy full-time

    Pros

    There are a lot of opportunities for growth, they do a lot of community outreach, and there are wonderful programs for employee assistance such as the coworker crisis fund where they help coworkers during rough times.

    Cons

    They are VERY selective in their hiring process and tend to not take chances when hiring someone.

    I worked at Mercy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They provide comprehensive benefits, although they could be expensive at times. I was able to get braces on the Orthodontic Insurance plan that cost 8 dollars a apy period but covered 2,000 dollars of my braces. They have a lot of connections to the community so I was able to row and go to various events as an employee of the company.

    Cons

    Even in-network health-plans cost over 100 dollars a pay period. Christmas bonus was 25 dollars and it was put into our paychecks so it was heavily taxed. Could at times be very difficult to get time off.

    Advice to Management

    Overall better treatment of the employees on the little things like bonuses and time off.

    I have been working at Mercy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture, diversity and a common goal of providing excellent patient care as a team.

    Cons

    It can be a lean environment with staffing, so some of the work can pile up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the values of Mercy! They are truly helping continue the mission of Catherine Mcauley.
