Summa Health System's beancounters fail in two key areas:

Year to year COLA, if they are made at all, fall well short of the actual inflation index. Coupled with sometimes twice annual benefit enrollment, and the accompanying increases in benefit premiums to Summa emplyees, results in "year to year" loss of wages while working there. You actually earn less year to year.

I know several employees who have not recieved increases of any kind for several years.

Summa's also famous for "allowing" employees to cash in their PTO at 50 cents on the dollar. There is no separate vacation time accrued.

Wonderful business model . . . . . . .

COLA-receiver in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio

I have worked for Summa for over 9 years. I have received at least 5% per year. I believe that is well over the COLA. Increases are based on pay for performance. Maybe your friends are not performing.

Hourly employees cash in PTO at 100%
