Dietary - decent pay, great benefits.. but the buck stops there.
Food Service Worker (Current Employee), Ames, IA – July 20, 2014
Pros: decent wages, benefits & perks.
Cons: management, high-turn over, workload, unrealistic expetations, etc.
The workload and expectations of certain positions in the Dietetic Services department are outrageous. The turnover rate is high due to the fact that most people get burned out. The department is also very cliquey. Managers tend to target certain employees while showing high favoritism towards others. Managers claim that they want their employees to – more... express their opinions because they are a "family".. but then punish those whom are targeted for doing so. While MGMC claims to be all about serving the patients, apparently in dietary they are all about serving everyone by payscale. Keeping nurses and PCTs happy is more important than doing what is best for the patient. There are also a significant amount of RNs and PCTs that can be extremely rude and demeaning to the those in the Dietary department.
If you are in dire need of a job, the benefits and other perks are fantastic (IPERS, PTO, Insurance, etc.). It just depends whether or not you feel the treatment is worth the perks. – less
The Administration was very supportive of everyone.
Medical Records/Sterile Processing Tech (Former Employee), Ames, IA – July 17, 2013
Pros: the administration was so very supportive.
Cons: many times there was not enough time for a lunch away from your desk.
I worked in 2 positions while at this hospital. In medical records if answered phones, walked the floors of the hospital looking for missing paper charts and helped with release of information. In sterile processing I clean and sterilized surgical equipment, pulled surgical supplies for next day’s cases and took call for holiday and weekends.
Cons: management, people, benifits are too expensive
would be a great place to work, but the people are impossible to please let alone get along with. Too much drama, and it's because the managers allow them to get away with it because they have been there so long.
Professional Medical Transcriptionist (Former Employee), Ames, IA – May 1, 2012
Pros: beautiful facilities. beautiful cafeteria, and parking ramps.
Mary Greeley Medical Center is a very reputable high state of art Central Iowa hospital serving people in the state of Iowa. I would unequivocally recommend it for employment and/or it's health services it provides. I enjoyed my time there very much. Coworkers were great, hospital staff is great, visitors were great. Very successful health business. – more... Doctors were state-of-the-art. – less
