Don't work in marketing at Mercy
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – October 24, 2018
I can't comment on working as a healthcare provider at Mercy, as all of my interactions with its doctors and nurses have been positive. However, its support personnel can be a different story. The culture, overall, is excellent and patient-oriented. But expect to have utterly unclear chains of reporting, in which you're held responsible for not reading the minds of the various people who are giving you conflicting instructions and none of whom are actually your direct supervisor. Apparently HR hasn't figured out yet that there's your "boss" at Mercy and then there's the person who's giving you conflicting orders that you also must follow. Be prepared for terrible, capricious and down right evil management. It could have just been my department, so I would avoid working there, at least, at all costs. It's not worth the few months you'll make it before you quit out of frustration or they run you off and re-post the job for the umpteenth time.
good benefits, mission
management, matrixed reporting- where you have your "boss" you report to, but in reality your boss is whoever wants to be it that day.
