    Pros

    It's exciting to work at a place where change can happen rapidly once decisions are made. We have a new CEO and essentially a new leadership team who are very committed to change. I'm seeing people take risks and make improvements happen at an organization where things were pretty stale. Not everyone likes to be part of that kind of transition, but if you like seeing results, this is a good place to be right now.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's hard to overcome the past and some people don't like to change. There's still some "wait and see" kind of folks who you have to win over. And, we still need to work on communicating internally, but it's gotten a lot better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to it! We've just learned that patient satisfaction has improved 10-fold in the past 4 months. It isn't easy to make that kind of significant change and we're all working harder than maybe we'd like to for the moment -- but there's a goal in sight and it feels like we're making progress. Keep going!

    Pros

    I guess the only thing I can say here is that it seems to be doing ok financially, and it's healthcare so I guess it's fairly stable, although they do like to fire people for no reason.

    Cons

    I have never worked with such incompetent leadership in my life. No one has a vision, no one is on the same page, and they act like it's still 1980. This is a VERY anti-union company, very republican conservative, and that really stands out in the Seattle area. Turnover here is incredible, and if you tell anyone you work here, they either say they feel sorry for you, or they will share horror stories about their care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get with the program-- it's 2011. Get rid of incompetent leadership (specifically the CNO), actually staff your departments appropriately, and have a real education department.
