    Northwest has a collaborative work environment between staff, management and senior leadership. You feel supported.

    Pros

    Very collaborative between departments. You don't have to watch your back. Senior management has a very open door policy. The physician-nursing relationship is very strong. People are listened to at all levels. Senior leadership changes show potential.

    Cons

    Always financially challenged. Wages are low and capital spending very tight. Union employee wages are much more positive than non union, only do what they have to. There is no management incentives other than do a good job.

    Pros

    some nice people mixed in...

    Cons

    Pretentious atmosphere to the public, ironically everyone is always trying to move on elsewhere. Really needs work on customer service all together. I was surprised how so many people manage to be rude and get away with it. That was pretty embarrassing when people would tell me stories about their experiences here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To have a better approach to the public, patient and everyone outside of NW so that people are not tuned off

    Nice slow place to work

    Pros

    It's a nice place to work. The pay is better if you are a nurse or in the medical field. The hospital itself is in a nice slow area unlike some of the larger hospitals in Seattle. It has plenty of room to expand and grow throughout the years and it would be fun to come back in 20 or so years and see what the hospital looks like. The best part about the hospital is the health benefits. You don't find a company willing to pay for most of everything. Like a said a great place to work if you are in the medical field or just starting out in it.

    Cons

    The biggest downside is the communication with the hospital. Although it's a nice place to work. You hear very little from senior leadership in the way of communication. We have good people in charge of the hospital that look out for the employees and are willing to help out if need be. It sometimes takes forever for things to happen but I guess that happends all the time in a work place. A lot of customer service is the biggest down turn as we deal with more of the "low lifes" of the hospital. Like I said nice place to work and start a career in the health care field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really. It's pretty good.
