I have been working at MultiCare Health System full-time (more than 8 years)Pros
MultiCare has given me some great opportunities, but I've definitely earned them. I've worked hard over the years and worked my way up. I appreciate their leadership development program, and feel that they definitely place a lot of effort into developing leaders. A big company means a lot of relationship building and movement can happen.
Excellent benefits! The pay is lower than local market, but the benefits are fantastic. Healthy at Work program, wellness fairs, contests, fun runs and marathons, discounts, shuttle and ride programs, tuition reimbursement...I could keep going.Cons
Oh boy, where to start. For as much as MultiCare has given me, it has taken so much more.
Work life balance is talked about, but it's an expectation that you are available at all times, day or night. I often have to work through days off when my director needs something. I've given 110% but it hasn't always felt like it's enough.
The company itself goes through major upheaval on a fairly regular basis, where our jobs are at risk, and we worry about whether we will even have a job. Reorganization, taking away positions, adding different positions, changing job descriptions, and lowering quality standards to meet the bottom line...all things that happen almost annually.
Leadership could really communicate better. I hope they're working on that. Half the time it feels like no one knows what's going on.
A new CEO has brought serious change. The organization is cutting a total of $300 million dollars in operating costs over the next 3 years. The first $100 million came down last month and will be coming out of next year's budget. My department could be losing about 1/3 of our staff, maybe even more. We don't know, and that's the hard part. We have no idea what's happening, when it's happening, and how it's going to happen. We just know it's bad and it's right before Christmas.Advice to ManagementAdvice
You have to show staff that it's ok to have a work/life balance.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
