    I have been working at Legacy Health System

    Pros

    Above average benefits, Above average pay rates at least in Information Technology. Very dedicated and genuinely nice colleagues (non-managerial). Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Terrible upper management. Complete lack of vision and foresight. Absolutely no planning. Extremely reactive and shortsighted decisions taken by upper management and the executives in the last 2 years. Recent Medicare policies are eliminating most of the funding for quality employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think things through. Be proactive. Have a five year strategic vision and stick to the plan. Changing directions every few months is disastrous. And above all, TRUST your employees.

    Pros

    Good healthcare
    Fairly consistent benefits with other healtcare providers

    Cons

    Management comes on board, and leaves for acceptable ideas are implemented
    Consistency of perfomance reviews
    High turnover in some deparments leads to a knowledge exodus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and focus on the future. Instead of fighting against Providence, focus on what you do better. Require managers attend some kind of Six Sigma training.

    Nepotism abounds at Legacy Health

    Pros

    Good starting wage not much else I can say

    Cons

    nepotism, unprofessional behavior by management, moe supportive no support of workers with families

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Legacy really needs to get the blatant nepotism under control. In my department if you didn't agree with the managers behavior or act like the manager and her underlings you were forced out. With such high turn over in some departments you would think they would start to look at the managers of those departments, instead of constantly blaming the employees. They would also do good by really supporting employees with families, instead of treating them like second class workers.

    I have been working at Legacy Health System

    Pros

    I really can't think of any.

    Cons

    Employees that are on the front lines actually caring for patients are continually expected to do more with less. Less pay, less resources, less support staff, etc. This is all while senior management positions continue to grow and grow. Contracts mean nothing to the company and employees are let go or their hours cut at-will. Compensation is not based on performance so performance appraisals are useless. As for benefits, working for a company that provides healthcare, the healthcare benefits are ABYSMAL compared to what other (even smaller) companies provide. The retirement match is also a joke.
