    Good benefits, but watch out for the middle management.

    I worked at Providence Health & Services

    Pros

    The benefits for employees were very competitive based on what I've been offered elsewhere, or what friends and family tell me they have provided by their employers. Also, there are many wonderful employees, providing excellent patient care.

    Cons

    The middle managers in many departments seem to only care about how they look to Admin. Providence management overall makes a big deal about listening to employee feedback, but nothing really ever made a difference in my department. Our direct manager would ask for our opinions, then do exactly as she desired anyway, even when everyone under her presented a mostly united front for or against some proposed change. Most of the managers there do not actually have to do the job task they now oversee and have no idea anymore what direct patient care is actually like, even though they make the decisions about best care practices and staffing levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really listen to employee feedback, don't just make a big show of asking for it. Also, middle managers should actually have to DO some of the work they supervise, so they truly have an idea what their direct reports are doing and how demanding it is.

    Poor support from management partly related to poor staffing.
