    I have been working at Mission Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Its a fairly large organization so its easy to get lost in the shuffle. The pay is about average.

    Cons

    Top heavy on VPs (has over 30) and most programs are disproportionately geared to benefit those who make over 100k. Us at the bottom try to feed off the morsels they happen to drop. Like most companies/organizations the benefits used to be a lot better. Year after year I watched as many former benefits were either eliminated or reduced. Two years in a row, no one received a pay increase. The company match on retirement savings was reduced in half for new employees. The $200 quarterly incentive for healthy habits was reduced to $100, then to $75, then to $50, then was eliminated. The company acted like they were dead broke but shelled out money for acquiring as many hosptals, clinics, and outpatient surgery centers, as possible. Then went on to build a new $400 million massive new addition to the main hospital.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees and make them feel important. You may say it in emails but actions speak louder than words

    Pros

    It's a job. Not much other than that.

    Cons

    Low pay compared to other hospitals. Benefits nothing to brag about. Don't get their insurance, it's a waste of money and takes forever to get a Dr's appt since it has to be a Mission Dr.
    Nurses are rude and can't do their jobs right. Clear favoritism in certain depts.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees more, make your policies better.

    Pros

    Thoroughly enjoyed the work, liked my co-workers, my department did many staff focused events (potlucks, holiday competitions, etc). Opportunities to learn new things as they are available.

    Cons

    Holes in the processes/staff, many long term career employees who were less then effective at their positions and held a very staunch "not my job" opinion. Lots of work for those who work hard, less then stellar recognition for going above and beyond.

    Advice to Management

    Great staff, lots of opportunity for upward mobility, competitive pay, good perks, I have really enjoyed working here. Please apply

    Cons

    Tough to get hired originally but once you are in it is easier to move through the company. Having a merger with HCA has left a lot of questions about job security

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more security as far as job placement. Improve medical insurance benefits. Be more concerned about the employees than the bottom dollar
