    Pros

    Great mission. Rewarding personally to help others

    Cons

    High turnover at top level. No long term strategy. Treated staff as if everyone was dispensable. Leadership was paid well and looked to others to make cuts. Advertising on WTOP? Seriously????

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a professional to develop a strategic plan and stick to it. Respect the employees who are working hard - good talent is hard to find.

    I worked at Providence Health System (Washington DC)

    Pros

    It's near public transportation. That's the only thing that's good about it.

    Cons

    The leadership is non-communicative. The place is run-down and in need of serious TLC in many places. Some of the nuns look down upon you as if they disapprove of your existence. (I respect all beliefs but being rude is unnecessary.) There is not much room for growth. If you get a job, then you will pretty much stay in that position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to support the growth of your employees with professional development and career acceleration. Also, respect is key.

    Pros

    Worse than hell , still surviving in Washington, DC

    Cons

    It kills more people than saving them. Very ignorant and unprofessional physicians, unethical medical practices, hub of evil politics in the name of international employees, ghetto and untrained nurses, horrible administration, dumb leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    open your eyes and consider recruiting new physicians, nurses and techs.

    Pros

    Providence stays true with its mission, serving the underserved populations in Washington DC.
    Many opportunities to get moved up if you hang on for a few more years.

    Cons

    Not the most up-to-date/ organized/structured hospital definitely. A lot of the older doctors at this hospital think they are God/Jesus and pay little attention to other disciplines. Due to lack of resources, I had learned to do everything by myself, which I can say is a CON for me personally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People in the upper management seem to have little vision as to what Providence should be doing to get improved. They throw in tones of money in renovating the units while buying a crappy electronic medical record system that is UN-user-friendly.
