I worked at Providence Health & Services full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – Excellent Clinical care, many of the clinical and business folks are very capable. Nursing and Physicians are good to work with for the most part.
Cons – Lack of inclusive thought and very superficial demonstration of values, (leadership feels they are above the values in actions)
Advice to Senior Management – Listen to the folks who have true experience and success, and trust them and the staff. It is not beneficial to remove folks with disparate opinions and helps to listen and collaborate with opposing views. That is true discernment.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Providence Health & Services full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – The people are super, great to work with. The company has "core values" which I believe were embraced by staff at all levels and not just used as filler material in employee handouts. The cafeteria food was pretty good imo though I am more forgiving than most. There were fun things like swag at training sessions, get-togethers after meetings, etc. Staff was always on board for initiatives and very team oriented and supportive so you could do your job. Training was good as far as I was concerned.
Cons – Communication was at times nonexistent. To say that is was "pee poor" would even be an erroneous statement and being a very detailed person I don't want to be off base here. Salary was sub standard also though to be fair the other benefits such as insurance and retirement contributions were above average. To give you an idea I walked out the door and gave myself over a 30% increase in income and that's not counting another job that I didn't get but interviewed for that was even more. You may also have to move up north to work with the technology you desire. There was a lot of personnel change that impacted others much more than me. There is favoritism and bias that can work against you if you are on the wrong side of it.
Advice to Senior Management – Overall I would say this company is "OK". I placed 2 stars overall which equates to "Dissatisfied" which isn't quite accurate but I think it between 2-3 stars. This is a "decent" place where you can stay for awhile as a stepping stone, use it for what's it's worth. The way I see it is I work for myself and I only care about my perspective. After all it's all about MEEEEE! My advice to management is provide better communication to employees.

I have been working at Providence Health & Services
Pros – I receive my paycheck in a timely manner.
Cons – Corporate management is so out of touch with what is happening at each ministry. Five states each with their own laws and regs. You can't have one size fits all policy.
Advice to Senior Management – HR and corporate are so afraid of a lawsuit that they can not effectively remove bad employees. So much time is wasted on managing bad employees. It causes a significant drop in morale that are at toxic levels.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
