I worked at Providence Health & Services full-time (less than a year)

Pros

A way to be of service to the local community

Cons

Very low pay for experience base, gossipy environment, lack of focus on patient care, sexism.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There are many good examples of high functioning healthcare systems locally. Model yourselves after Group Health or the UWMC.

    I worked at Providence Health & Services full-time

    Pros

    PH&S is a top notch healthcare provider organization with exceptional patient care and state of the art equipment.

    Cons

    This review is focused on Admin only. I have never written a critique about an organization before but seriously compelled to do so about this one to bring awareness and prevent a qualified and otherwise professional job seeker from switching positions and then later on regretting it:

    • there is lack of respect and professionalism in this admin support department located in north end responsible for preparing capital and operating budgets
    • leadership exists only in title [those that have leadership titles are warm bodies because they are incompetent at leading]
    • bullying exists [those that do it are also leaders]
    • leadership plays favorites – For example, select members of the team are chosen to participate in closed door meetings in which topic should be shared with entire team
    • open door culture does not exist –leadership spends majority of time with doors closed
    • aggressive and bullying employees are blindly allowed to sabotage other coworkers
    • no goal setting nor professional development occurs – [goes back to incompetent leadership]
    • leadership is critical to a fault yet provides no input [again this is due to incompetent leadership]
    • systems are old, antiquated and no training or growth opportunities exist

    Some of these themes are prevalent in other’s reviews too and in my 20 plus years of professional experience (as another reviewer said too); I can honestly say that I have never been treated so poorly; a department is only as good as the people leading it.

    The Extreme, Writing is on the Wall:
    • Go find your own projects – it’s up to you we don’t give you work to do demanded by one of the execs [who does this, this is redic -- Staff may be duplicating efforts, working on projects that are not in line with the organizational mission, etc). Clearly stated they don’t know what the heck they are doing.
    Simply put Do Not Play Nice. If you desire to work in a professional environment where leadership walks the talk, individuals are treated with respect and dignity, stability and growth opportunities exist, then seriously you should not waste your time with this organization.

    It's easy to do what you want, but it's hard to do the right thing

    Current Employee - Anesthesia Technician in Anchorage, AK

    I have been working at Providence Health & Services full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is alright, 1% raises the last two years though. Vacation is 5 weeks/yr to start. Competitive tuition reimbursment program. (2000/yr i believe).

    Cons

    Focus is not on the patient, only the bottom line, it shows in all aspects of the hospital. A near monopoly on Anchorage healthcare is partially to blame for lacadaisical leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return focus to the patient, explore ways to keep core staff content. The latter has truly been neglected.
