Senior Procurement Specialist (Former Employee) – Johnson City, TN – April 17, 2018
You had two people that that worked and was overloaded compared to the others that came in and out as they please and loved to play while the Upper Management was away. Double standards on all policies. They preached "team work" but that was definitely not the case. Management only took care of the ones that were in their "click".
IS Service Desk Analyst (Current Employee) – Johnson City, TN – April 14, 2018
The right hand doesnt talk to the left hand. It can be kinda stressfull because the development teams will sometimes not communicate with each other and push updates that will break leaving us to pick of the pieces and take the heat. Refer to the first few chapters of the Phoenix Project. The Service Desk team is great about picking up the slack.
Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Abingdon, VA – March 8, 2018
Typical hospital with poor staffing for nursing assistants. People very kind and provide a warm environment. Management worked great with individuals and attempted to provide to individual needs as much as possible.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Johnson City, TN – March 8, 2018
Certain areas/floors/units were excellent environments for staff and patients. Other areas involved poor management and disgruntled employees providing poor care to patients. Physicians/NPs rushing to get through numbers of patients rather than treating them as individuals.
Lower pay, decreased respect from upper management
Pre-Visit Coordination (Former Employee) – Johnson City, TN – March 5, 2018
My interview should've been my first clue that the company, or at least this position wasn't what I was told. It felt very thrown together and I was told I was interviewing for one position, when I arrived I was told there was two and they would decide which one they would like me for if I were hired. Once I started working my "trainer" was often gone for long periods of time, just walked away and was gone from ten to often twenty minutes at a time, sometimes more. According to my trainer I wasn't completed with my training yet was put on my own since they had two new hires to train. People whom should not be in roles of authority are, there is a lot of backstabbing, child like behavior and catty behavior. One of the things that turned me off quickly was hearing one of the "managers" speaking ill of associates with associates, as a former manager that is just not acceptable and should not be tolerated. I'd like to say I enjoyed my job but, I was poorly trained, thrown out on my own without all the knowledge I needed and the team environment was truly lacking, not to mention pay was a down right joke for all you're expected to do. Best of luck if you decided to work here.
IS Project Manager II (Current Employee) – Johnson City, TN – January 19, 2018
I found my project management position less than challenging and had to accept low pay for my skills in a weak PMO infrastructure environment. Also, I was told that neither a raise nor advancement was in my future while working there. Work drama is relatively low and if you are capable of maneuvering office politics at all, you should be fine.
My position has a stress level that is relatively low, but I was used to a contractor position, where output, responsibility, and travel were much much higher. While MSHA does not require the same high level of effort, they do expect expert performance and extra hours be put in, although they are not willing to pay for it in salaries.
The health benefits are disappointing, given the fact that MSHA is a network of hospitals and other providers. Only 80% coverage is offered with a high deductible and no discount is offered to employees who use MSHA hospital sites and its providers.
Overall, my experience here has been average, but I am also comparing it to poor working conditions I have been previously exposed to. Knowing your job will be the same forever, no matter how much work you put into it, can tend to make a person complacent and/or uninspired.
I believe that MSHA would benefit from increasing salaries or other benefits to their employees, such as paid vacation or professional development. This would likely enhance employee experience and encourage them to be more inspired. Currently 90% of the people I work with have told me they only continue working here because the job market in this area is so bad. Imore... believe employers know this and take advantage of the situation.less
If you show up and do 1/2 good work, you will likely have a job here for a while
If you show up and do 1/2 good work, your skills will diminish and your pay will continue to be below average
