    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Nice staff
    community and family oriented

    Cons

    Not a fan of their EHR
    Pay is low. They need to significantly increase Coder's salary or they will lose all their talented staff to vendor companies where they will make more money.
    excellent PTO accumulation

    Advice to Management

    Fight hard to get your staff a raise

    I have been working at Saint Mary's of Michigan part-time

    Pros

    Friendly environment, the team work well together when replacing shifts, the paid time off is great, Easy to get to location

    Cons

    Should receive better pay for shifts, there should be better cross over within shifts and paperwork assignments, and a small department

    Advice to Management

    Please work on developing a better strategy on hiring employees and provide a better workload for current employees. Great job on accommodating on scheduling.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Phenomenal support of Staff and genuinely felt like I was cared for as an employee. I worked with an intelligent, caring group of people and provided top level care.

    Cons

    The only downside for me was the distance to travel to get to the hospital especially in winter, but the atmosphere was well worth the commute time!

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you do, I remember my time working there fondly.

    I have been working at Saint Mary's of Michigan full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Sense of "family" with co-workers, strong faith based theme in the work place. Upper management is open to feedback and input.

    Cons

    Over the past 5 or so years corporate has taken away the local decision making it difficult for good local leadership to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    If at all possible regain local decision making- it's difficult to invest in the Ascension Health Network but easy to want to be part of the St. Mary's family.

    Pros

    Employee picnic, annual Christmas dinner, retirement teas, spiritual center with classes available, has potential to be great with incoming medical school

    Cons

    Frequent changes to administration, too many meetings and not enough action on initiatives, some associates use the other hospital in town as an excuse not to do things

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice see less meetings talking about what we can do and instead more action actually completing the initiatives. It would also be nice to see a greater effort at maintaining a fair approach to all associates.

    Current Employee - Human Resources Generalist in Standish, MI

    Pros

    The benefits are good and they do try and be a good employer.

    Cons

    Old style leadership. Managers that were promoted past their level of skill. Micromanaging of staff . Drowns creativity and frowns on open and honest dialog. Everyone is always trying to avoid conflict and keep everyone happy. DIfficult issues are avoided and the top leadership is out of touch and lacks key leadership skills. Complaints are made over and over again, and action is not swift.

    Advice to Management

    Put a new Adminstrator in, one with more people skills. Hold leadership accountable and get Managers training and held accountable. Most perferabley get them business education and project management training. They have medical experience but lack basic business sense. To much focus on the medical like a nurse, but not manager.If they do not step up, replace them. I often times visualize what it would be like to replace some managers and I immediately get a very good feeling. Get some action takers and good communicators who are open, honest and open to hear constructive criticism. Too many resistant to change.
