More interested in the money, than patients and staff
LPN (Former Employee) – Mason City, IA – July 28, 2017
This use to be a great place to work for and than they got greedy. Patients and staff became a lesser priority to them. Wage increases are little to none, along with increased cost of health insurance.
Changes for the future-but not for the good of the employee
RN (Former Employee) – Mason City, Iowa – January 19, 2014
The culture at this employer has undergone a drastic transformation over the previous 10-15 years. Upper management most notably Senior VPs and CEOs have had this ivory-tower mentality even way back but individual work units were allowed to function with at least some degree of autonomy provided there were no major issues at the time. Fast-forward to the present where micro-management is the rule of the day. One can point to the day when Trinity Health of Michigan took over. Stories of under-performing work areas being called onto the carpet by the home-office drones to the point of making managers leave meetings bawling like children are not uncommon, all for the sake of squeezing as much revenue out of every single source they can. Quarterly revues are used in addition to annual evaluations. Employee morale took a nosedive and turnover has increased. MMNI's saving grace is that it's the only game in town, the major employer in a very small area. It may be a good place from which to learn but no place to stay for an extended period of time unless you have family ties to the area.

Top-heavy management structure, low compensation for many job classes
Allied Health Employee (Former Employee) – Mason City, IA – March 15, 2012
Jobs at Mercy are very insecure, and the turnover is generally very high. Compensation for most positions is well below industry average and wage increases are locked at 2% annually. Corporate culture changes with new leadership, and due to turnover in leadership this means being always in a state of changing culture. Your experience will undoubtedly be different if you are a provider, I can only offer a review of the allied health positions here.
