    I have been working at Providence Health & Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great clients, some great co-workers, team approach, mission driven. For salaried employees time is flexible and supervisors are very accomodating.

    Cons

    If you are working in a Providence facility or "ministry" as they call them, it's very hard to get promoted to the regional or corporate offices. In the facilities so many employees stay for so long---which can be good---however many of them are beyond burnt out and it seems the Providence way is that if someone is a problem in one department they just move them to another. Not much mentoring going on and not much building up of collegues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to the in the trench workers about improvement ideas and take a hard look at how hard it is for someone to get fired which then causes people who should have been let go a long time ago to fester and breed more discontentment.

    Pros

    Great culture and benefits. Conservative, but warm and Mission based

    Cons

    Older MarComm team that is a bit behind and too community-focused. Not willing to put energy and money needed to create competitive campaigns

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some energy improving the technology and messaging behind your marketing and communications strategies so it can be at the same level as your care
