In the last decade, Providence has not lived by the mission and core values it preaches to the community and employees.

    I worked at Providence Health & Services part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great doctors and staff. I can't think of anything else.

    Cons

    No flexibility in scheduling, managers do not communicate with employees, Growing too fast because they keep acquiring more practices and hospitals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down in your acquisition and perfect what you have now. Train all of your employees properly. Too many unhappy employees.

    I worked at Providence Health & Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have many opertunities. In serveral fields. There are some fields that they say they train in when fresh out of school. And Some you don't have to go to school to get trained in them. This all helps with the job opertunities.

    Cons

    Not the friendliest place to work if you don't fit into their clicks. It dosen't matter if you do your job well or not. It all depends on if you fit into their clicks on your job opertunities. The training that you recieve when freash out of school is very minimual if any. The programs I used in school were not any of the programs used by this company, so I kind of learned by my mistakes as I went. My training with them was they just turned on the computer and got me into the program that I was to use and said there you go. When I asked questions the person training me would get mad at me and start yelling at me. Therefore, it made me not want to ask her questions. I reported to my suporvisor and when they talked to her things go spread throught the office and things just got worse for me. I refused to let them push me out and was determined to learn as much as they would allow me to which wasn't much. I went home every night in tears. I did not find my experence with them to be a good one and would not recommend anyone I know to work for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I will not give advice for I don't feel it would do any good.
