    I have been working at Adventist Health

    Pros

    Great, friendly and supportive atmosphere. Flexible with times and willing to work with employees. As long as your time management skills are good you will do very well.

    Cons

    Obviously there's always corporate and billing demands. Quotas to be met, productivity to be accomplished. This can make the job stressful.

    I worked at Adventist Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Patient care is excellent. Most staff on the floor are excellent.

    Cons

    Leadership structure is s/w stifling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful of losing sight of the big picture. Minor issues can overshadow more important issues if feedback is not encouraged among the workers on the floor.

    Pros

    There are a lot of good and passionate people working for Adventist Health. The faith based culture is prominent and meaningful to many. Nice working environment overall

    Cons

    Senior leadership is very poor, and primarily reserved for members of the 7th Day Adventist Church, so advancement opportunities if you are not Adventist are virtually impossible. Many of the Senior Leaders are children of other Senior Leaders from sister hospitals and are not qualified.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Leadership is completely out of touch with operational realities. They continuously espouse that their vision is to be the best place to receive care, best place to practice medicine, and best place to work but their actions do not support this. This slogan is a joke - Adventist Health quality is poor overall.

    Pros

    Good faith based culture and a lot of very nice and hard working people make this a friendly place to visit and work.

    Cons

    Poor physicians, bad emergency department, terrible patient experience, bad senior leadership that is out of touch and not engaged in reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house and start over. Current senior leadership is terrible. No real leadership, only slogans. Puts all leadership responsibility without enough support on to mid level management who they ultimately blame when things go bad. Company vision is to be recognized as the best place to receive care, the best place to practice medicine, and the best place to work. It is none of the above and steadily getting worse.

    I have been working at Adventist Health

    Pros

    Many talented, high quality employees in the lower ranks. Some opportunities to learn new applications and processes. Good desserts served at company events.

    Cons

    IT changes are moving far too fast. Shoddy test procedures allow flaws to be installed in production systems, attitude is that flaws will be fixed later. Upper IT management mainly clinical background with limited IT knowledge. Job opportunities seem to biased toward Adventists.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down development a bit. Get more people with IT backgrounds at higher levels in IT department.

    Little room for advancement

    I have been working at Adventist Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The benefits are great and coworkers are like a family.

    Cons

    The pay is low and management needs TLC.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place the right people in the right leadership position based on skills and ability rather than on who you know.

    Current Employee - Consultant in Portland, OR

    I have been working at Adventist Health as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Mission is admirable, care is top priority, employees have good skills, "bedside manner" is important and well practiced, high importance placed on current education skills (i.e., staff is pulled off schedule if their CPR certification expires).

    Cons

    Like many large organizations, cuts are made and good employees lose their jobs. This often puts a lot of extra pressure on the rest of staff to get their job done. Frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People aren't just numbers.
