    I have been working at Spectrum Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Spectrum Health has an initiative to be one of the top health care providers in the nation, which opens up a lot of opportunity you wouldn't find elsewhere. Competitive pay, good benefits, exciting projects you can be involved in, Level 1 trauma center and great midlevel management.

    Cons

    Standard issues that come with working for a large corporation: weak interdepartment relationships, corporate management that is far removed from bedside employees, and lack of standardization between the regional hospitals, though that is currently being addressed.

    I worked at Spectrum Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good for professional and clinical skill building experiences.

    Cons

    Organization if very focused on numbers and not the individuals. Always knew what I could be doing better, and never recognized for what I was doing well. They place more value in quantity than quality and it reflects in how low they prioritize employee satisfaction. Monster organization that places no value in the professions that form its foundation. Dedicated 8 years of service hoping it would improve.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your employees know you value them!!! Focus more on building them up and promoting a healthy working climate. Stop measuring their worth against a standardized check list created by business professionals who have never set foot on a clinical unit.

    Pros

    Theres always work to do IV's, credits, returns, stats to deliver. SOME great co workers to work with and make your shift more pleasant. I enjoy where i work for the most part.

    Cons

    Management sucks. Plan and simple. They dont care about you. they will not stand up for you unless you suck up to them. If you work hard and good at your job theyll train a newer tech in an area youve been asking to train in for months. some coworkers are all about being back in grade school and tattling to the 'teacher' if someone says something they dont like. or if they dont get the joke.

    Advice to Management

    keep your experienced pp happy and theyll want to stay and continue to provide great service and products to the patients.. dont always cater to the newbies.
