    I worked at Harborview Medical Center full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great place to work if you enjoy working with troubled teens.

    Cons

    Culture of restraint/seclusion as a form of punishment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the practice of the use of mechanical restraints and seclusion and be aware that you have a culture of the use of restraints as punishment among the technical staff and some nurses.

    I worked at Harborview Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Harborivew is known for it's academic and progressive character. Not one physician, nurse, PA, or what-have-you is not also a teacher and instructor.

    Cons

    It's a large organization and despite their best efforts, find a difficult time taking care of their employees to the utmost degree. It isn't that they treat their employees poorly, but because it is a public hospital, there isnt much room to treat their employees gratuitously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time in the trenches, i.e. the clinics, departments, ER, etc. and try to figure out a few small things that could foster more employee happiness.
