I worked at Legacy Health System full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent medical care for children, trauma and burn patients. They provide services not available anywhere else in the PAC NW.

Cons

The pay is seriously under market and they refuse to acknowledge it. They appease staff and managers by doing market reviews and never take into account the significantly higher differentials and benefits paid by Providence and Kaiser. They are consistently understaffed and the medical team is frequently under distress trying to figure out how to handle the toughest workloads and shortest staffing ever seen. Management listens but doesn't readily act. Ultimately it's not a lot more than lip service.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to develop some real backbone to deal with employee behavior issues. Managers have little to nothing to stand upon and have been emotionally and physically threatened for trying to discipline. It took forever to actually terminate people that had YEARS of documented incidents in their files and in some instances had caused real patient harm. The service is amazing. You provide a great deal of charity care and the good employees that are there need fair compensation for a change. They are grossly under compensated and leaving for better benefits across town. Going elsewhere makes one realize how much staff are supported by other sites in staff and not continue sully worrying about walking into shifts where they are doing the work of 2-3 people. Legacy is lucky more serious harm has not been caused by their continual short staffing and under recruitment to hire into open positions.
