    Pros

    Co-workers! Everyone is easy to get along with and knows how to get their work done. Fast paced and quite a bit to do, which makes the day go by fast. Shift differential on evenings and nights is nice to have. They are also unionized.

    Cons

    Managers above my immediate supervisors were less than pleasant to interact with and don't seem to value their employees, which is why the union was started last year. Bureaucratic BS is apparent throughout. Hospital administrators are WAY overpaid while they say they need to lay-off employees and freeze hiring. Wages are below the state average for most, if not all, positions in the laboratory.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, managers are amazing and the hours are flexible.

    Cons

    The benefits are terrible and the pay is not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    You need to become more competitive with your salaries and saying "well, you don't have to drive into Portland" is not justification for paying someone less than market rate.

    Pros

    Comparable pay with benefits. Small community with great staff and Doctors. Flexible scheduling for students. Tuition re-imbursement for those who will continue employement for at least one year after payment.

    Cons

    non-flexible shifts of 12* days/nights (there are not 8/10* shifts for medical floor nurses). No onsite childcare.

    Advice to Management

    I cannot say how important onsite childcare could be for the employees who are working 12* shifts. Peacehealth has had many building areas where this could be implemented and has yet to do so. With many healthcare workers being single family incomes this would benefit the company as well with decreased absenteeism.

    Pros

    For the most part I enjoy working with most of my co-workers. I find that I am able to talk to my nurses way better than management.

    Cons

    A downside is that management does not support people that are lower on the chain. They only care about themselves.

    Pros

    They are looking to the future of healthcare. Epic is coming. Great mission and values.

    Cons

    They make being a nurse really hard. They also look outside before promoting their own. Some of the top leaders don't know the business and day to day operations of the hospital.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on message. Hold leaders and staff accountable.

    Pros

    Anonymity, I get to work when and where I want, because nobody knows what is going on.

    Cons

    I really wanted this company to excel in the Northwest Market and maybe they will in the end, but the lack of communication and mass exodus from PeaceHealth is too much for me to stick around for.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your staff. We want to make this company better but we don't feel like we are part of whatever master plan there may be.

    I worked at PeaceHealth

    Pros

    PeaceHealth can be a good place to work. Their focus for everyone is to be caring and considerate.

    Cons

    I worked at the Shared Services Center not everybody who works there follows that caring vision. There are managers there that are just the opposite. I worked in the facilities department and my manager was the biggest capital "B" ever. She was incompetent in her job and often threw other people under the bus to save face. I think she was related to someone with power because, first of all, she did not have a 4 year degree that is required of managers at PH, secondly she had no facilities experience and did not know what the "H" she was doing. Don't apply for any job in facilities at the Shared Services Center!

    Advice to Management

    Fire your Facilities Manager

    Pros

    Decent benefits, good location and hours.

    Cons

    High Stress, not good management

    Advice to Management

    Worked for Peacehealth for several Months, scheduling patient appointments. Position was high volume and very high stressful, when making recommendations to streamline calls and workload it was deemed I was negitive, when pointing out hipaa violations I was told that this is Peacehealth not the last hospital I worked at, I have work for 10+ years in 2 other hospitals in the U.S.. Office is using outdated medical software but is supposed to upgrade to Epic in several months, in which I was a super user in my last position. One thing during the interview progress I asked what was the employee turnover rate for the last 12 Months and they told me no one has left and the current employees that were there have been there for years. One week after I started I got my first red flag by finding out that out of the 7 employees not including me, 4 of them had started within the last the last 90 days.

    Pros

    Great staffing most of the time on L&D.

    Cons

    Started hiking our benefits in 2012, because of that we've essentially lost a decent amount hourly..... Most profitable location, yet treats employes like crap!
