    I have been working at Spectrum Health part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    We have the best resources to perform our job within clinical care.

    Cons

    Clinical staff is underpaid and overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Bridge the gap between administration and clinical staff. There are many opportunities for staff retention and for staff and patient satisfaction.

    I have been working at Spectrum Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is a large company with many opportunities to move up the ladder if you have some sort of degree.

    Cons

    Not always concerned about patient safety errors when pointed out by employee that is not in management position.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people that do the work day in and day out. Management skills are important but patient safety and care are much more important. Much of the safety and care comes through common sense and not necessarily a degree. It seems as though one could tell within a few minutes of meeting with a employee if they have common sense and compassion or are just trying to make a name for themselves.

    Very diverse place to work at

    Cons

    There seems to be minimum mutual respect between different departments

    Pros

    Approachable supervisors and managers, scheduling staff can be worked with, fulfilling career opportunities

    Cons

    Under-staffed constantly, some co-workers are unprofessional, hard to get people to swap days, general discord among some staff, probably root cause is stress of being short several people.

    Advice to Management

    We are working very hard and care about our residents and the success of Spectrum. Please don't cut funding on having adequate staffing. It is imperative for us to not be worked to extremes... Everyone suffers. We don't get to spend the time and attention we would otherwise with our residents. They feel rushed, we feel overwhelmed but are afraid to speak up in fear we will be seen as lazy.
