    Pros

    . Lots of nice people work here. Vacation time adds up fast. Decent Health Insurance, but you have to participate in "Living Well" program to avoid a fifty dollar per month increase.

    Cons

    Even though vacation time adds up, very hard to use when you need it because of skeleton staff. UW Medicine is inserting their people and they think they know everything, but people that have been at NW for years are being let go or their life is made miserable. Have been given the runaround about a minor promotion when people doing the same job have gotten it without jumping through hoops.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people in the trenches. They have this"Rounding" program but not much gets done and the hard questions you ask never get answered. You should work on making the deeds match the words. Get rids of crazy managers.

    Pros

    It's a nice place to work. The pay is better if you are a nurse or in the medical field. The hospital itself is in a nice slow area unlike some of the larger hospitals in Seattle. It has plenty of room to expand and grow throughout the years and it would be fun to come back in 20 or so years and see what the hospital looks like. The best part about the hospital is the health benefits. You don't find a company willing to pay for most of everything. Like a said a great place to work if you are in the medical field or just starting out in it.

    Cons

    The biggest downside is the communication with the hospital. Although it's a nice place to work. You hear very little from senior leadership in the way of communication. We have good people in charge of the hospital that look out for the employees and are willing to help out if need be. It sometimes takes forever for things to happen but I guess that happends all the time in a work place. A lot of customer service is the biggest down turn as we deal with more of the "low lifes" of the hospital. Like I said nice place to work and start a career in the health care field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really. It's pretty good.
