New tower is not staffed, going through many changes, too much at one time,
NURSE (Former Employee), nursing – July 9, 2014
Pros: co workers are very supportive -we have to be or we wouldn't survive on day to day basis
Cons: short staffed all the time.
RN many years, constantly working short staffed, upper management gets fired at the drop of a hat, even if they have been there 20+ years.
ICU,CCU, OR and the new South Patient Tower are the top priorities with administration and it is VERY obvious. If you work in a department that is not a top "money maker" you get abused, overlooked, ignored.
HUMAN – more... RESOURCES is not helpful in resolving conflict. They always support corporate, not the "little guy" – less
Medical Receptionist (Current Employee), Pontiac, MI – May 28, 2014
My job at St, joseph Urgent Care is a very good learning environment, I have been there for 2yrs and I am always learning new things, My co-workers and I all work well together and try to help each other out when needed
Good place to work. Always be looking beyond for advancement.
Manager, Inpatient Pharmacy Services (Former Employee), Pontiac, MI – September 27, 2012
Pros: large enough hospital to offer growth.
Cons: constantly changing upper management groups over the years. one is bound to not like you.
After many years of excellent service (30+), I'm put out to pastuer like many before me. Overall, good place to start a career. Not many finish there. Co-workers are fantastic throughout the organization. Learned much on the way up over the years. Most difficult part of the job is dealing with trivial behavioral issues of staff that seem to predominate – more... the minds of upper management. Most enjoyable part of the job is being fair and being recognized for it, with staff that report to you. – less
clerical (Former Employee), pontiac, michigan – September 24, 2012
Pros: good benefits. good pay.
Cons: feudal system.
Upper management is so busy patting themselves on the back for what a great job they are doing they have no clue as to how abused the people working in the lower ranks are. If you have ever seen the old silent film "Metropolis" you will have an inkling of what is like to work here.
As a current employee, I have never witnessed such behavior. I would assume you were terminated due to your lack of performance. Perhaps consider a different profession whereas professionalism isn't required.
