Lackluster at Best-Possibly A Sinking Ship

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Tacoma, WA

I have been working at Franciscan Health System full-time for more than 5 years

ProsHave met some great people as far as co-workers; a good place to see a lot of different medical cases/clinical situations; decent salary and benefits but not fantastic; well-regarded in the community

ConsLeadership is basically non-existent in the department I work in (you may not see your manager for weeks at a time and are likely to never get a reply to your email or phone message); incompetent and poor performing staff members are retained but their performance shortcomings are expected to be absorbed/compensated by the stronger performing staff members; organization talks about its values and integrity but that is just propaganda-what matters is that the upper management and physicians (who seem to walk on water at this place) get their whims and high salaries met while other staff members just squeak by; they expect full time employees to constantly pick up extra shifts and when people refuse they are told they are "not supporting their co-workers"

Advice to Senior ManagementHave faith in the knowledge of some of your front end staff; ask staff what the problems are instead of thinking you know the answer and addressing something that isn't really an issue; value the contribution that people make to the organization; understand the stress that poor management places on front end staff; hold department heads accountable

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
