    No pros for this workplace

    Cons

    Terrible place to work. Administration and HR doesn't care about employees. They are rude and disrespectful. Gone is the day when employers cared about employees having families to feed. You feel like your walking on eggshells in this organization.

    Advice to Management

    consider what your employees first

    I worked at Rockford Health System full-time

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons include flexible schedule, managers that care and I also like the fact that could use my degree to the fullest.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides at Rockford a Memorial Hospital is that it was recently bought out by Mercy Health causing a drastic change in corporate culture.

    Advice to Management

    Please acknowledge that this by-out will bring major changes that everyone is not prepared to be on board with. Make sure the new vision is clear with no contradictions.

    Relatively higher starting pay for a security position, and full benefits. The other officers are friendly, and will help you when needed.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, good patient care, and many opportunities to get involved with other outside initiatives. Gained many valuable experiences working here.

    Cons

    Very top-heavy in management. Many managers give the impression that they are 'all that'. Pay is not comparable to other health systems.

    Listen to employees regarding new ideas & support them in trying new approaches to making the department better

    I have been working at Rockford Health System full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good team work the majority of time.

    Cons

    Terrible if any pay raise, only lateral moves possible, micro managing, very difficult for some departments to get tuition reimbursement, HR is worthless when it comes to interdepartmental issues.

    The health system cares most about you about 1 - 2 months prior to employee satisfaction time, that's when the free ice cream, free t shirts and warm welcomes take place.

    Advice to Management

    You have very hard workers, appreciate them more!
