    I have been working at Mission Health full-time

    Pros

    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

    Pros

    Great growth potential if you are willing to dance the dance. Mission stays on top of providing cutting edge health care.

    Cons

    Work environment is punitive in nature. Not much support if you are learning and not excelling fast enough. The emails all say we are here to support you, but I have not even met most of you and when I did it was in a crowded room to drum up support for changes and budget cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Employees need to feel supported and heard. Saying it and doing it are not the same. Practice what you preach.

    Pros

    OT always available and excellent coworkers. My Manager is fantastic.

    Cons

    Burnout, unreasonable workload (taking work home and not getting paid for those hours).

    Advice to Management

    Micromanaging is ineffective and burns everyone out. Be more realistic about workload. There are meetings about meetings! Totally ridiculous waste of time. If we had fewer surge calls we might actually be able to assist our unit in meeting the discharge-by-noon productivity demands. You realize each call is 30 minutes and that each of us is tied up for the duration of the call? That's 15 hours of work and time you waste with each call. If you would simply let us do our jobs, we might actually get things done. Also, stop trying to cut costs on the lower level. If you want to save money then cut some positions up top. We are stacked with so many managers and directors, it's crazy. Worst business model EVER. Pay the CNAs more and they might stick around longer. It takes a lot of money to train someone up, you would think you would value them enough to give them merit raises instead of paying a new hire more than a current employee with the same number of years experience. If you value experience then make it equal across new and current employees. I have lost half my staff to other hospitals paying more or to their frustration that they have been here and been a nurse longer than some new hires but they are getting paid less. Horrible for morale.

    Appreciate the candor. As a nursing leader, we encourage you to bring this up to your manager and with Nursing leadership. Great point about CNAs, and we actually have just raised the minimum for... More

    Pros

    great learning opportunities for staff

    Cons

    Management does not have your back. There is a financial decision which will affect you they will choose to move forward You will work multiple jobs at one time because they’re unwilling to pay for additional employees.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people what they’re worth. Engagement will increase and productivity

    I worked at Mission Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits compared to other employers in the area. Handful of peers who were supportive and enjoyable to work with.

    Cons

    Very little support from management. I went to my manager several times for additional support and was denied each time. Very disappointing for a company that says they are dedicated to employee's health and wellness. Managements approach was very punitive and instilled fear in employees as a means of motivation. Felt like a "cog" due to workload and little concern for work/life balance. Communication is poor and one way with very little (meaningful) communication from the top down.

    Advice to Management

    Authentic communication is valued and appreciated by employees.

    Excellent care givento there patients

    Cons

    Business oriented not mission oriented. Have 56 Vice presidents and all associated minions allpaid verywell! The people that actually care for patients are known as worker bees and not considered valuable. If you look at jobs posted and pay you will find nurses arenot valued!

    Advice to Management

    Realize the workers that keep your place open. Ifwe all walked you wouldn’thave a job. Try runninga hospital without nurses!

    Pros

    Best job I ever had. Great pay and benefits. Dragon voice recognition technology put our department out of business in January 2014.

    Cons

    None. I rapidly advanced several times at the beginning of my career, much to the dismay of my colleagues who had far greater experience than I did. However my skills and abilities were above what my colleagues had.

    Advice to Management

    Great place to work.

    Corporate has ruined the pt focus and made it all about checking the boxes to get Medicare and insurance dollars. Staff is treated as if they are disposable
