Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – August 28, 2018
Mercy is so worried about their employees having "the Mercy way" with their patients but Mercy does not have "the Mercy way" with their employees & the Mercy way is now a joke. They underpay their employees & over work everyone to the point that everyone is burned out. You have to constantly watch out for people who try to throw you under the bus. Managers, or at least mine, does not stand up for us. Nurses have gotten at least 2 cost of living increases & a night differential increase & other departments haven't. Mercy is all about the money & they don't want to pay their employees what they are worth & then wonder why everyone is leaving. I would not recommend Mercy to anyone because every department I've talked to say that working conditions are bad & are tired of their job/the hospital.
Great work experience
Horrible pay, bad working conditions, always understaffed, no management support, favoritism

I only worked at Mercy therapy for a little over a year before we recently relocated. It was a lot less stressful than my previous experiences with outpatient therapy since they have 1:1 patient care which is almost unheard of in the industry. I could really work with my patients and make sure they were doing things properly. I will miss working for this company and my manager.
1:1 patient care, got to work with patients instead of directing them while working with someone else
shorter amount of time with a patient due to 1:1 patient care

Great place to work, compassion, empathy, concern for others. I have witnessed and observed compassion in practice (not just theory). Management is helpful and supportive. Mercy really cares about clients and co-workers.

Staff Nurse (Current Employee) – OKC – July 30, 2018
Some talented staff. Leaders and management support rude physicians. Play favorites with staff. Do not follow their own policies. These situations cause stress and fear among the staff and destroy the culture that was presented in orientation....which all agreed sounded fair and supportive in orientation, but does not exist..unless you ask a leader or upper management....or their favored employee.

A select few of the nurses in the emergency room are mean and spiteful and gossip incessantly . They are burnt out and need to change careers ASAP. They will run you ragged and then complain about you and then run you off the job. Duties include taking vitals, charting and cleaning rooms.
employees in different parts of the hospital are kind
Cardiac Sonographer (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – June 20, 2018
A very good place to work and grow your skills as a beginner and to learn new ones as a seasoned worker. The management in the department are knowledgeable with all of the areas covered and supervise fairly.
Patient Account Representative (Current Employee) – OK – June 11, 2018
Pay scale and lack of advancement opportunities are horrible. Too many chiefs, not enough Indians, so guess who gets paid well and who doesn't. Dr's/PA's/nursing staff are disrespectful in that they believe their jobs are the only ones at Mercy. (Granted it is a hospital system, but it takes a village. Only if you are no one of the aforementioned, you're an "idiot".)

From when I was working there at the time. It was trays would go down a conveyor belt. What the ticket needed you would put the food item on the tray or plate. Then those trays get but into a big cart. Then pushed up to the floors and left there for the nurses to take the trays to the patients. After that we take a 30 minute break. Then start grabbing the carts and bring them down and breaking them down taking all the trays and cleaning them off.
