    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

    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!

    Pros

    None at this time. I suppose they do have good technology if you can afford it, but staff cannot

    Cons

    They took a respected pillar of the community and destroyed it

    Advice to Management

    Sell to someone that cares about their patients and staff

    Pros

    A paycheck, they need people so bad that its hard to be fired, but coworkers take full advantage of this and make it harder on the ones who really want to work.

    Cons

    Unreasonable expectations. Nothing ever gets cleaned right because they want you to work faster, not better.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people to clran so that a decent amount of time can be dedicated to getting it done right.

    Pros

    Excellent bedside staff that truly want to
    Provide high quality care. Highly trained people in all specialties who want the best outcome for our patients.

    Cons

    Horrible management, massive cuts to essential staff and resources despite huge profits, condescending upper level staff who couldn't survive a day on the floor but are responsible for making key decisions.
    Lack of support for staff. Unsafe staffing conditions daily.
