Pros

The care providers at Harborview are committed to helping patients, and the sense of mission is great. If you're interested in contributing to the greater good of society, this is an awesome place.

Cons

The pay is not competitive. If you're not involved in patient care, it's a little less rewarding. Promotions are essentially all based on tenure rather than merit. Conformity is more rewarded than innovation.

Advice to Management

Communication is still lacking. It's hard to get a sense of where the organization is headed because it still feels like decisions are made in a vacuum. Would I recommend Harborview as an employer? It really depends on what someone is looking for.

    Pros

    Working at Harborview is enriching - both personally and professionally. The medical challenges are as diverse as the population. Patients are treated with respect regardless of their circumstances. The physicians are tops in their field and the nurses are skilled, warm and attentive. As an employee, I learned something everyday that I worked there.

    Cons

    As a trauma facility and regional burn center, the stress level is high. The enormous amount of charity care creates financial challenges that must be met, often resulting in disagreements about the best way to do that.

    Advice to Management

    Make good hires and then listen to and trust your employees. Their perspective is valuable. Micro- managing kills creativity and motivation.
