    I worked at Mission Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Commitment to serving Western North Carolina, despite the cost to do so (reimbursement, low income communities).
    Physical and headcount growth and expansion.
    Generous PTO.
    On-site health clinic for staff (accidents and illness needs).
    A number of staff wellness initiatives

    Cons

    Top heavy and racially monolithic at the executive level.
    Large company, so slow to move on staffing needs.

    Advice to Management

    Stop comparing Mission to other hospitals in NC and the region (Chapel Hill, Greensboro, Charlotte) because the need and focus are incredibly differently and so is the population served. Be great by remaining true to what Mission needs to do- serve the residents of Western North Carolina, many who are low income and have limited access to healthcare.
    Also, don't forget there are non-white males and females (and not just one or two) that can effectively serve as VP and Chief officers.

    I have been working at Mission Health full-time

    Pros

    I wish I could share some pros.

    Cons

    You would think an organization who's primary responsibility is to provide quality healthcare to patients and the community would extend the same philosophy to its employees. Sadly, the system is top heavy and has little concern about providing a healthy environment for its employees. There is no reward for hard work and dedication. Meager wages makes it had to survive in the overpriced city of Asheville. Management and administration are overall a heartless bunch who consistently threaten to layoff staff due to "gap mitigation!' While most of them receive underserved bonuses that equal what most make in a year or more.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking about yourselves and pay your staff a livable wage! Reward hard work and dedication and you will find that your terrible attrition rate will improve.

    Pros

    Highest quality jobs in the area, the people are almost always awesome

    Cons

    Ongoing efforts to reduce cost and staff (just part of the overall healthcare market right now), Mission has big business problems with only a medium size business ability to address them

    I have been working at Mission Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    My co-workers, the Doctors, the patients

    Cons

    Upper management really does not care about the workers in the trenches. It is all about the bottom dollar, even over patient safety.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your average staff nurses and others at the patient bedside.

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

    Pros

    Great nurse: patient ratios as compared to the Triad and other areas of NC. Many Med/surg floors just went to 1:5 after years of 1:4 so of course there is grumbling. Shared Governance is redesigned and leadership/management is listening! Great new clinical ladder where a nurse with MSN/certification can get a $5K_+bonus. Other bonuses for BSN/certification. Lots of certification support and tuition reimbursement. Unlike the Triad they hire AD nurses and encourage/support return to school.

    Cons

    Older staff is stuck in there ways. Time for new blood? Instead of complaining help with patient outcomes. Some victim mentality in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to staff and don't spend time listening to the sour grapes that just like to complain. Continue with middle management development and emphasis on accountability.
