    I worked at Legacy Health System

    Pros

    Pay and Benefits are good. Organization working hard on promoting from within except for higher-level leadership opportunities. Seems there is more interest to hire from the outside.

    Cons

    Dr. Brown is excellent. Some of the senior leaders spend too much time on their own agendas rather than a common vision. This creates confusion in the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on Dr. Brown's visions collectively

    I worked at Legacy Health System full-time

    Pros

    The pay was decent. Management is supportive. Growth and learning opportunities abundant. Overall, great place to work!

    Cons

    I honestly can't say anything bad about my time with Legacy. I would still work there had my spouse not been relocated out of state.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing what you are doing! You are making a difference and EPIC was by far the best system you could have implemented to increase patient experience since the staff now have the time to really focus on the patients needs.

    Pros

    Coworkers are so supportive, helpful and friendly. Patient and employee safety is top priority.

    Cons

    The unit is understaffed and more often than not float staff who are uncomfortable and not familiar with the unit are working. Pay is on the lower side for the area.

    I have been working at Legacy Health System full-time

    Pros

    I've worked with some great people who assumed good intentions and were committed to delivering exceptional care. There are are many long-term employees who like working for Legacy. Since it is just big enough (although not a Providence Health), there are opportunities to expand your career once you get to know people. I would recommend working here.

    Cons

    Like anywhere else you work, your job satisfaction will depend on how supportive your leader is. It can be big enough where there is breakdown in communication and coordination of resources. Also, the hospitals all have different organizational cultures. Pay can often be less than local healthcare competitors for non-clinical jobs. Medical/dental benefits cannot compare to Kaiser.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't keep trying to do too much with stretched resources. Do keep listening to employee feedback.
