    Very Hostile Workplace!

    Staff Nurse (RN) (Current Employee) Portland, OR

    Great hospital system to work for. Lots of opportunities.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAwesome pay and benefits, usually well-staffed, great physicians and nurses to work with, clean facility. Many opportunities to move around within the system.

    ConsBecause of the location of emanuel and good sam, there are a lot of alcoholics and drug addicts. They're not always the most pleasant patients and it makes for a lot of social work headaches. Personally for me, the hospital is a little far from my home. Traffic sucks.

    Overall good company providing good care for the area. Can be very bureaucratic at times.

    Occupational Therapist (Current Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsSome extremely excellent staff providing quality patient care.

    ConsNot much room for advancement. Managers stick to numbers rather than focusing on what COULD provide the very best patient care -- people are more important than numbers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOther than my direct manager...I don't really feel like management exists.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work, just wish I could work more!

    Dietitian (Current Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsGreat people work there, good access to Employee Health benefits such as vaccinations, good benefits, if you can get them.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ConsSome job functions were centralized, so employess had to move from different Legacy facilities to one central facility.

    Professionally fulfilling

    Registered Nurse (Current Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsProfessional relationships, recognition of nursing's contribution is improving, opportunity to work with different disciplines, helping to make positive changes in patient's recovery from illness,

    ConsUnit budgets do not allow for real continuing education in nursing, just education to support hospital or system initiatives so leadership will meet quality goals and qualitfy for "merit" bonus.

    Legacy is a top down managed health facility with little involvement from front line workers.

    Staff Nurse (RN) (Current Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsGreat location, nice facilities, great physicians

    Conslack of collaboration, top down management style, little room for front line workers to make a difference, knee jerk responses to changes in healthcare.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInclude front line workers in your decision making. Handing information down from the top to a lackluster middle management is not effective.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
