Management is the most stressful part of working at Mercy! Like they want to see failure, so they can close Clinic cafeterias and get rid of long time employees. Favoritism is over the top!

It really depends on where you work. Some departments are better than others. One theme that seems consistent is that the “Mercy Spirit” is long gone. This is evident by how the coworkers are compensated.

Mercy does not have a Human Resources department. It's a Personnel Department. This, from several high-ranking staff managers at nationally-recognized larger organizations with professional HR departments.

Mercy is managed by a group of unresourceful amateurs holding big titles. Their total allegiance is to management. It's a paradigm of "employee is guilty before being proved innocent."

You can't reach anyone by phone. You can rarely reach them via intranet emails on the Mercy website.

The application process is a continuing nightmare...taking weeks for contact, additional weeks for an interview, and several weeks to follow-up for the initial offer of employment.

So, prepare to be stalled. Turnover is so high at this hospital that no one in Administration cares to get to the root cause: management. Not all management but realistically about 60%.

So, beware. Enter/apply at your own risk. Do your due diligence and ask around before you leAve one job to enter into another one that may have you wanting to return to your former employer.

Get it in writing! The first time you do something to help a co-worker, you'll be doing that job forever! Don't do it, you'll be completely unappreciated!
