    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

    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.

    I worked at Legacy Health System full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, high standard of behavior

    Cons

    the employees vacation and sick hours come out of the same bank, thus it encourages staff to come to work sick, in order to save Paid Time Off for vacations. No clinical ladder for nurses.

    Pros

    The quality of care is excellent.

    Cons

    Top down management is not aware of the great potential of the staff it employs. There is little room for professional advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to recognize and utilize the skill set of employees.

    I have been working at Legacy Health System

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Because 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.
