    Pros

    Home health team well supported by staff..part time and case managers. No many meetings. No micro management.

    Cons

    Driving distance...not many patients north of Everett.

    Advice to Management

    Possibly consider more positions such as 3 days per week with one Saturday a month and one holiday per year.

    Pros

    Flexible hours and decent pay for a relatively easy job. Benefits are hard to beat, and the staff are usually very friendly.

    Cons

    Management is somewhat disorganized, push overtime on their employees constantly due to a lack of organization, and overall don't seem very empathetic towards their employee's needs.

    Advice to Management

    They need to get their act together and start making coherent decisions about hiring extra managerial roles that know how to communicate effectively and follow through with the advice given to them.

    Pros

    When I started this hospital lab was well run and efficient with little drama. People like EvergreenHospital for the most part. As a larger hospital it takes care of it's employees well. Good benefits, holiday meals and free parking

    Cons

    Understaffed, union shop so hard to get rid of bad employees. No sense of teamwork in the lab. Inpatient vs outpatient. Day shift vs night shift. Client services vs the lab vs microbiologist.

    Advice to Management

    Consult the people who actually do the day to day work before implementing changes. Learn the jobs in each part of the lab. When multiple people complain about something or someone it is usually true.

    This review is not for our Evergreen Systems as we are an IT consulting firm, and this is about a hospital lab. For better or worse, Evergreen Systems is a pretty common name :).

    Reference request is misleading and jeopardizing

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at EvergreenHealth

    Pros

    I am trying to get hired.

    Cons

    When I was asked to submit references, I thought this meant that I could expect a job offer shortly after that. Instead, I got a non-personalized email stating that a different candidate had been hired. I have no reason to believe that my references reported unfavorably about me. What I think happened is that EvergreenHealth uses an outside company called SkillSurvey.com to generate reports from each applicant's references, and then used those reports to help them to decide whom to hire. In the past, it was time-consuming for an employer to find out what others say, but with this new technology, it requires no investment by the employer and yet they get a wealth of information. My complaint is that this is misleading and also potentially jeopardizes applicants' current employment when he or she requests a reference from the current employer. My opinion of this organization has dropped because of this practice.

    Advice to Management

    You should be clear and upfront with applicants that in contrast to the past, a request for references does not mean that an offer is likely to be forthcoming. You also need to warn applicants to not jeopardize their current employment by naming a current employer. You might even consider re-evaluating this practice and use of SkillSurvey.com.

    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 Management

    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.
