    I worked at Spectrum Health part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Can be very rewarding working with the patients, met some great people from several different departments.

    Cons

    Drama w/in the dept, some nurses are mean, quality of training can depend on who is doing it and how understaffed they are. It’s a simple job, but it’s easy to make a serious mistake or get put in uncomfortable situations where you have to compromise.

    Advice to Management

    Offer incentives, be honest

    I worked at Spectrum Health full-time

    Pros

    Mission and benefits were great.

    Cons

    If you're an engineer with a desire to advance quality or process improvement projects and you can work from a blank canvas, and thrive at that nature of work, you'll enjoy it. Otherwise, be prepared to work with improvement in healthcare-ages behind manufacturing, unbalanced work, less predictible & slow results. Cultural fit will determine your success in this unit.

    I worked at Spectrum Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunity for growth for those willing to prove themselves and show they are deserving. If you’re looking to move up and grow in the organization while putting in minimum effort and simply resting on your tenure, probably not the right organization for you. If you’re a go getter and willing to give it your all, you can go far.
    Benefits are good, loved the PTO structure with roll over and sell back options.
    My co-workers and the people I worked with directly were amazballs. I had a great team that had fun but got sh!t done. Again if you are motivated to GSD, this place will give you as much as you can take.

    Cons

    Big organization, things don’t move quickly and better chance you have to occasionally deal with someone that doesn’t like to play in the sandbox and seems to just want to cause hurdles and drama.

    Advice to Management

    Less meetings, less politics, more/faster decision making, and trust your employees (e.g. in IS, allow more WFH and flexible schedules).
