    I have been working at Northwest Hospital & Medical Center full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    . Lots of nice people work here. Vacation time adds up fast. Decent Health Insurance, but you have to participate in "Living Well" program to avoid a fifty dollar per month increase.

    Cons

    Even though vacation time adds up, very hard to use when you need it because of skeleton staff. UW Medicine is inserting their people and they think they know everything, but people that have been at NW for years are being let go or their life is made miserable. Have been given the runaround about a minor promotion when people doing the same job have gotten it without jumping through hoops.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people in the trenches. They have this"Rounding" program but not much gets done and the hard questions you ask never get answered. You should work on making the deeds match the words. Get rids of crazy managers.

    NW is generally a very good facility that the UW is trying to bring into its system. Needed but NW losing individuality.

    I worked at Northwest Hospital & Medical Center full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Care, focus on doing what is right, providing a strong resource to the North end of Seattle/Shoreline/Edmonds.

    Cons

    Salary and benefits are less than all other area hospitals. They can't attract full volumes and therefore don't have the finances to pay market. UW admin is not trying to keep any of the individuality that makes NW so good, becoming a drone of the UW system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Blind support for UW/Harborview marginal players brought in or kicked out of those locations should be dealt with. It is great if you are from UW/Harborview. It is unfortunate if you started at NW.
