I have been working at ProMedica full-time
Education reimbursement benefits are great! Many advancement opportunities if in the right department.
Very large corporation if you prefer smaller type, but each hospital/department is individualized.

Advice to Management
I worked at ProMedica full-time (More than 10 years)
Benefits are outstanding. Pay is competitive.
Poor investment in physical plant.
VERY poor upper level managers who are placed in positions based on degree level rather than experience in a particular business line. This has led to dependency on middle managers who may or may not act in the best interest of all employees.
No oversight from VP level and above leading to bullying of middle managers to "make changes" even when they are not necessary. If it isn't broke, no need to fix it.
Poor value of employees with longevity. No ones opinion is valued or matters unless you are a middle manager or higher.
Too many layers of management.
HR does not get the whole story in most situations and allows bullying and game playing. If they know you they believe you, without ever digging for the truth.
Overall very poor employee morale unless you have a great immediate supervisor.
Advice to Management
LISTEN to your employees and find out the whole story before taking action.
Don't just take the advice of a manager because they say so. Poor managers are every where, if you hear it from more than one employee there is probably some truth to the situation. Find the truth.

Reasonable benefits, reasonable leadership. Management is treated well by the organization.
Below industry average IT salaries. New IT employees are brought in at higher salaries than existing employees. Nearly all IT employees are salaried exempt and are expected to provide on-call support without additional compensation.

Most of the time everyone worked together.Working off campus keeps you out of the "politics"
Wage "freeze" at about 15 years. A lump sum bonus is not the same. After 30 years at ProMedica, my salary in 2017 was only $1.00 more than 2009! New grads were making close to that!I retired The last week of May ( even worked an extra month to help with vacations. I received an e-mail informing me of my bonus amount but then received a call from HR, stating that I would not receive it since I didn't work the first week of June. After 30 years I feel that the amount should have been prorated. The same thing happened to some with the "buyouts" where they received a letter with information only to find out that they missed the deadline by a couple of days.Some management was aware of the impending buyout and encouraged some of their staff to "hang on." Also if a paycheck was not issued due to someone else's fault the employee should not have to spend their time to make sure it is issued in the proper amount of the taxes withheld and then not have to drive all over town to get it.
Advice to Management
Stay in touch with your staff- avoid "tunnel vision" and be aware of what's going on. Listen to both sides of the story before using acting. Avoid "band aid" solutions- a frequent occurrence that frequently needed changing at a later date. Be proactive with computer repair, wheelchair maintenance erc., instead of having to again use a "band aid" solution. Pro-active especially with JACHO requirements to avoid last minute policy reviews and revisions, keeping the facility clean, maybe a large routine cleaning schedule to avoid the flurry of medical trying to clean while doing patient care! An example would be a master schedule to deep clean the stairwells, public bathrooms and waiting areas. I usually do not comment, but you asked!!

They offer great insurance benifits
Hourly pay is not the greatest
I have been working at ProMedica full-time (More than 5 years)
good work hours, able to advance and transfer within
insurance it not the greatest,
Good benefits, pay is better than it has been in the past, management tends to consider employee needs as often as possible.
Slow to implement change at times, general volatility of healthcare.
