    MSW Case Manager for Hospice in the Home and Community

    Current Employee - Hospice Social Worker In Community  in  Kirkland, WA
    Current Employee - Hospice Social Worker In Community in Kirkland, WA

    I have been working at EvergreenHealth full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    respect and autonomy
    great co workers
    caring supervisors

    Cons

    BIggest con is NO OVERTIME FOR MSWs, despite typical 12 hour days. RNs get hourly, we do not. THere is also no written policy or plan for pay raises. The HR and management are fumbling and mumbling about it, and nothing gets changed. This is truly demoralizing.. and we work our personal lives to the bone, even those of us with good boundaries; the hospice patients and families need help-- we have to help.

    Way Inconsistant with caseloads.. when you get busy, you do not always get help, and the patients suffer and the staff (MSWs and RNs) get burned out and overworked. The scheduling department gets uppity if you ask for too much help, and often we are expected to suck it up and just do a good job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show that you value your MSWs by giving pay increases, or at least give us the opportunity for merit raises. We deserve knowing what kind of growth opportunities Evergreen offers us.

    Current Employee - Unit Tech in Kirkland, WA

    I have been working at EvergreenHealth part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They have union for techs too. Pay is better than the rival hospital I used to work. Parking is easy and free.

    Cons

    Traffic on 405 can be bad. Their new hire training was not so great. I had 6+ yrs hospital experience so it didn't affect me but they didn't teach us how their equipments work before the floor orientation so i had to figure them out on the floor.

    Current Employee - HIM Analyst  in  Kirkland, WA

    I have been working at EvergreenHealth full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, and ample PTO.

    Cons

    HIM department not overly recognized or respected. Considered "paper pushers." You're doing the same mundane tasks everyday with no new challenges or duties. Kind of feel like a robot. A little cliquey with the teams/roles you work in. If you like cubicles you'll be just fine here.

    Accepting a position in the HR Dept was the biggest mistake of my professional career

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Kirkland, WA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Kirkland, WA

    I worked at EvergreenHealth full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free parking, nice campus, decent coffee shops, mediocre benefits

    Cons

    I observed unethical actions within the department, including violations of HIPAA, FMLA, and FLSA. I witnessed discrimination against protected classes of people. I experienced ongoing and inappropriate commentary about my physical appearance and personal life. I reported all of the above instances to my manager but nothing was done to improve the work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act with integrity in the workplace.

    I have been working at EvergreenHealth part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The pay is great $32.00 an hour. they love hiring RN's . You get 20 days of orientation and the evening nurses love working with newbies

    Cons

    They always over staff I see people get sent home. The woman who does the scheduling have her favorites. I said before that the evening nurses like to work with the newbies the day shift nurses not so nice. I was new out of school and some of the nurses were not very nice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want the new Rn's to stay treat them nicer

    Former Employee - Information Technology  in  Kirkland, WA
    Former Employee - Information Technology in Kirkland, WA

    I worked at EvergreenHealth full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I was at least a Clean workplace.

    Cons

    As another reviewer stated:
    "Watch out. Leadership is quite incompetent and will never take blame on initiatives that they were responsible for."
    I experienced this first hand, in fact, It is my opinion that I was hired with the underlying intent to take the blame for a previous project gone bad. I my opinion this was one of the worst ethics issues I have ever personally encountered.You have been warned!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek help in ethical management practices.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Kirkland, WA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Kirkland, WA

    I have been working at EvergreenHealth full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to move within company - education - health benefits

    Cons

    Expectation of workload exceeds what is safe and realistic. Staffing should be based on patient acuity vs patient numbers. Especially since you do not provide adequate care for injured employees. Pay is completely tenure based, not based on performance which breeds mediocrity. Example: there is an employee that has been caught stealing twice; once from a fellow staff member and once from a patient. That employee still works in the same position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about your employees and treating them fairly. DON’T PREACH “it is important to take care of yourself” and then when an employee is injured on the job and you deny rehabilitation and care to the injured employee!! You take care of the injured patient BUT NOT the employee. SHAME!!It happens frequently!! You are losing valuable employees due to caring more about money than the employee and their well-being.
