    I have been working at Legacy Health System full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers are so supportive, helpful and friendly. Patient and employee safety is top priority.

    Cons

    The unit is understaffed and more often than not float staff who are uncomfortable and not familiar with the unit are working. Pay is on the lower side for the area.

    Generally well intentioned people but like anywhere else, this depends on who you report to.

    I have been working at Legacy Health System full-time

    Pros

    I've worked with some great people who assumed good intentions and were committed to delivering exceptional care. There are are many long-term employees who like working for Legacy. Since it is just big enough (although not a Providence Health), there are opportunities to expand your career once you get to know people. I would recommend working here.

    Cons

    Like anywhere else you work, your job satisfaction will depend on how supportive your leader is. It can be big enough where there is breakdown in communication and coordination of resources. Also, the hospitals all have different organizational cultures. Pay can often be less than local healthcare competitors for non-clinical jobs. Medical/dental benefits cannot compare to Kaiser.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't keep trying to do too much with stretched resources. Do keep listening to employee feedback.

    Pros

    Stable work environment and flexible schedule. 401k match.

    Cons

    Be sure to negotiate your salary up front or you will get stuck creeping along at a dismal 3% for the rest of your time in the job classification. Compensation is not merit based, so you have to be self-motivated.Due to budget cuts a few years back, they expect a lot out of each employee- so be ready to bring your A game all day every day. Tried to get re-classed as my workload and responsibilities changed significantly and does not reflect the job title, but was told no.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider merit based pay or a livable wage increase - .20-.30 a year doesn't stretch very far. Don't forget the worker bees, we all work hard for our money even though we don't have RN or MD after our names.

    I have been working at Legacy Health System full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great office culture. Compensation good.

    Cons

    Current management is not connected to staff. Working environment is not appropriate for volume of patients being run through. Patients being added without consideration of appropriate time on schedule. Employees continually working through lunch and breaks to accommodate volume. Management aware of working environment but looking at dollar amount producing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is being hired according to degree, with no attention to "people skills". Management has no idea what goes on if office except what is told to them and then management only relays to upper management what they want known. A lot of management is in over their head and this shows.

    Pros

    This hospital is successful, has many opportunities for staff. A leader in the community.

    Cons

    Lots of new nurses. Lots of new processes, constant change. Re-inventing the wheel. Old white guys running the place, very political. Tell us what we want to hear, nothing changes. Understaffed and told to deal with it. Same ol' story of every hospital! The community is growing and the hospital also needs to expand, desperately .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need better education process for new nurses and continuing edu for nurses.
