Pros

Providence is focused on fulfilling their mission of providing excellent and quality health care for all, including the poor and vulnerable through the application of their core values, of respect, compassion, justice, excellence and stewardship. It is reflected throughout all departments including non-patient care areas. It is a pleasure to work for a company that fosters a work environment that encourages and supports excellence. Continuing education in your field of expertise is expected and funded up to $1500/yr. The benefit package is excellent. The collaboration opportunities amongst the Providence Oregon hospitals allows the best practice models to be spread and shared regionally. The brightest and best work for Providence! It's a great place to share and strengthen your areas of expertise and knowledge.

Cons

In IT an employee who has a clinical background can earn more money than the non-clinical analyst even when the non-clinical analyst has much more advanced IT analytical skills. Very frustrating, especially if the clinician simply has a Bachelor's degree. Doesn't seem fair when they walk into the same position you've been doing for 5 years and they have no experience in it but are paid more money than you are.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

One area Management can improve is in communication with staff in regards to the change in the electronic health record that is coming down system-wide.

    Pros

    Great health benefits, pay and a group that is working to make a world a better place. They provide extensive training and development. Movement within the organization can be difficult but there is always more to learn and encouragement to do so.

    Cons

    As in any orginazation your experience depends greatly on your peers and superiors. One weekness is the organizations inability to confront and resolve conflicts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As in any orginazation your experience depends greatly on your peers and superiors. One weekness is the organizations inability to confront and resolve conflicts. When people are not displaying the characteristics consistent with culture and mission the behavior should be corrected or removed.

    Pros

    room for growth, a large company so many opportunities, the people really care about eachother, the quality of work is important to leadership, no layoffs have been done during the tough economy.

    Cons

    leadership has staff working on too many large initiatives at once with no clear direction. It can be difficult to move up the ladder but not impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have one clearly focused large initiative going at a time. There are so many going on right now it feels like the right hand doesn't know what the left is doing. Implement salary overviews to ensure people that've been with the company for a long time are being fairly compensated. It's frustrating to get an annual increase that barely matches the rate of inflation.
