I have been working at Group Health full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Salaried workers seem to have a wage above market for the area (though hourly seems to be lower than market value for the area). Strong benefits package and a pretty decent work/life balance.

Cons

Layoffs are a constant topic of discussion. Either talking about previous layoffs, restructuring from layoffs, or the potential for future layoffs.
Inconsistent level of facilities. The difference between the Tukwila "Administrative" campus and the HQ in South Lake Union is remarkable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus some time and effort on bringing all campuses up to the high level of quality you have set with the HQ building.

    Brilliant and talented people but their lean model often set unrealistic expectations.

    I worked at Group Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits; efficient; knowledgeable management. Changes were well thought out and delivered in an organized fashion. Good communication across the organization. High expectations.

    Cons

    Fear based management. Older staff bullied new staff. Raises were quite poor. Management unrealistic in expectaions of volume and quality. When volume expectations are too high it is difficult to maintain the 100% expectation of quality and vice versa. I didn't feel they cared about the quality of health care provided to our members. Due to the focus on volume (metrics) staff just wanted to rush to get the job done in order to meet the metrics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote an environment where old staff are held accountable for being unkind.Too much time is taken by tracking our work which takes away time from being able to perform our job functions. Simplify that process. People are not computers or robots.

    Mission-driven, but lacking in focus and strong leadership.

    I have been working at Group Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employees believe in the mission and genuinely care about delivering excellent patient care.

    Cons

    Lack of good leadership in some key areas. Sometimes it feels like changes and decisions in one area are in direct conflict with other areas within the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The organization needs to be agile to keep up with changes in a volatile industry, but too much change at once continues to be a stress on employees.
