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

    Pros

    Very reliable steady income, offers several training opportunities for employees free of charge, employee discount programs with some other companies like Dell that could be convenient, reputable company that other employers like to see on your resume.

    Cons

    To advance within the company, there is a hierarchical system for being approved for other positions. If your boss decides they don't like you then your out of luck. There are so many positions you could qualify for but never receive an interview if your manager is not cooperative with HR.

    Advice to Management

    Create a system for internal advancement where employees can go around possibly unfair and bitter management holding them back.

    Former Employee - Staff RN in Akron, OH

    Pros

    good co workers and big company that is fair with employees and consistent with salary and amount of time you have been a RN

    Cons

    need a 4 year degree to advance due to magna status, does not count with years of being a nurse.

    Advice to Management

    consider promoting nurses who are able to do the job and consider the experience of the nurse.

    Pros

    Great team, fun and rewarding job, interesting work! I thoroughly enjoy my job, and I learn a lot every shift!

    Cons

    Variable schedule, working nights, weekends and holidays. Limited autonomy and room for growth as an NP or PA. Work with different people all the time -- difficult to get to know each attending physician's preferences.
