      Former Employee - CT Technologist 

      I worked at Saint Joseph Mercy Health System part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Excellent teamwork in this fast paced high volume department.

      Cons

      If a room is closed for upgrades or scheduled maintenance out patients are still scheduled every fifteen minutes and no appointment times get blocked off to keep up with the in house and ER patients. There is not a person working at waiting room to update the patients when they are going to be waiting for more than a half hour for their scheduled appointment time. Nothing done to retain newer employees. The top seniority...

          I have been working at Saint Joseph Mercy Health System full-time

          Pros

          Free parking. Food is good but overpriced. Pay and benefits are at or below competitors.

          Cons

          Stiff, very conservative culture. People will smile to your face but engage in immature antics behind your back. No standard of excellence. Use it as a stepping stone only (what most people do).

          I worked at Saint Joseph Mercy Health System full-time for more than 8 years

          Pros

          The people I worked with as my peers were fantastic. We had a great team approach, and genuinely cared for one another. Very knowledgeable physicians, and I’ve gained a great bit of knowledge because of them.

          Cons

          The HR and management, on the other hand, are a different story. HR is not concerned about retention, the ridiculous history of poor management, or being staffed appropriately. Management has to beg for a position to be filled if one becomes empty. And management is only worried about metrics and numbers and how much can be done with the least amount of staff.

          Advice to Management

          Understand that there IS something to be said about retention, experience, and a job WELL done. Patients are sometimes none the wiser because the nurses and support staff bust their rears to get a job done right, but eventually you’re going to have either burnt out staffing, or high turnover, but all lead to costly mistakes or hiring. And turnover IS EXPENSIVE, yet we are expected to be good stewards. Stop thinking...
