    I have been working at Adventist HealthCare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Possesses some of the best physicians in healthcare.

    Cons

    Washington Adventist Hospital is currently underfunded, therefore, most departments are understaffed. The work loads are significantly heavier.

    Pros

    Reasonable benefits. Able to find good co-workers.

    Cons

    As soon as something works, they get rid of it. Many openings at top left open and supervisors expected to cover two positions. Morale low. High turnover.

    Pros

    some caring people, value long-term employees, most staff really try

    Cons

    corporate executives are self-focused and don't get the rest of the organization, poor project management, pander to employees who are of the Adventist faith, tolerate really poor performance

    Advice to Management

    look inward and be honest

    Pros

    Med/Surg and Critical Care CNS very knowlegable

    Cons

    erratic management, bullying acceptable even after complaints, HR believes anything that direct care workers say about newmanagers

    Advice to Management

    do not send negati8ve complaining emails to new hires before they even start working, do not constantly complain about your job to your subordinates

    Pros

    Coworkers are very warm and willing to help. They encourage and appreciate the work that you do. The executives are pretty involved in the day-to-day operations. This hospital serves low income, uninsured population. If you like to work in a hospital-setting knowing that you are truly helping the mos undeserved, then this is the right place for you. The pay is competitive but hard to grow in this company given the lack of resources.

    Cons

    The facilities are really old and need a lot of improvement. Resources are very limited in terms of capital and human resources but then again that would prove true to any safety-net type of organization. The traffic is heavy at most times of the day and the parking situation for employees is chaotic.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Some of the managers are genuinely nice people, but they are vastly outnumbered by the incompetent ones

    Cons

    Very technologically old fashioned in business practices. Management does a ton of talking but no doing. I had zero work/life balance- I would get called on my days off and I regretted every sick day I took.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people with more respect and understanding. Then maybe we all wouldn't be running away...

    it's okay

    Pros

    Great team members, fast paced. Good place for new grads to learn and take experience with you to an organization that will value it.

    Cons

    Low salary ranges, far below average in this area, health benefits are not good, very little vacation time and no paid holidays, managment makes it tough to use your leave time because of under staffed.

    Advice to Management

    Put your employees needs first, treat them like the valued and commuted service providers that they are. You will always continue to lose good staff if you continue to under pay and over work your employees.

    Pros

    A faith based organization that employs an incredibly diverse staff. The new CEO, Terry Forde, understands there is a healthy balance in delivering outstanding care to patients, providing support to employees and collaborating with physicians. He is interested in innovation and creativity - a breath of fresh air in healthcare today. Executive leadership has and will continue to commit to developing its leaders. Also proactive in offering healthy living resources/services to all employees.

    Cons

    Frontline staff and middle managers stretched further each quarter continually having to do more and more with less. It may take awhile for the new CEOs philosophies, thinking and practices to trickle down. Compensation tends to below competitors yet other benefits may fill the need for some employees.

    Advice to Management

    Increase future budgets to allow for more employees to take advantage of academic endeavors. Stay vigilant in quashing the rumors (fear) that one could be fired for speaking out.
