    Decent place, but watch out for who you talk to

    Security (Former Employee) Everett, WA

    ProsFaith-based organization, immediate supervisor was awesome and very supportive, lots of overtime available, decent pay.

    ConsThey do not give you full credit for previous experience and pay raises for non-union employees are non-existent. Very political environment, hasty decision-making or no decision-making at all. There were many times that policies contradicted themselves and prevented personnel from effectively/efficiently performing their duties.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide more transparency regarding leadership, be able to differentiate between petty gossip and fact. Allow the employees and supervisors to have discretion in executing their jobs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The company as a whole has vastly been improving facilities and how we treat patients over the years.

    Dietary Aid (Current Employee) Everett, WA

    ProsThey have a tuition reinbursement program and as a student, I found that to be especially helpful. Though, it only covers $2000, so if you went to a university like I did, it won't cover everything, but that is still a free $2000.

    ConsIn my department, the management is outsourced from a different company. I'm not entirely sure if this is the case across the board, but it does put a damper on internal development, ie: "moving up the ladder".

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Overworked - Underpaid

    Operations (Current Employee) Everett, WA

    ProsFew good coworkers/employees to work with who somehow have managed to stick it out despite the excessive workload and expectations.

    ConsYou will find yourself continually given more and more work without any thought as to how much work is too much work. The pay does not match the amount and difficulty/expectations of work. You will be underpaid and be continually asked to do more in less time. There is a gossipy atmosphere amongst employees which creates an untrustworthy environment. There is very little flexibility which hinders any kind work/life balance. You will find that employees leave, are let go, or retire, but their positions will not be filled and then their workload will fall upon the remaining employees. Expect to do the work of 2-3 people at any given time. It does not appear to be the goal of management to care about the employees, they will say that they do, but in action they do not.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShift your focus from profits and the "bottom line" to caring about your thousands of employees, you might find much better results. Happy employees = happy patients and more patients using your services. It's unfortunate that this is not the current business focus, otherwise this could be a great company to work for.

    Lots of middle management and sniping coworkers.

    Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) Everett, WA

    ProsA way to be of service to the local community

    ConsVery low pay for experience base, gossipy environment, lack of focus on patient care, sexism.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are many good examples of high functioning healthcare systems locally. Model yourselves after Group Health or the UWMC.

    Very Poor Human Resources Leadership Team for Supporting Departmental Managers

    Manager (Former Employee) Everett, WA

    ProsExcellent Senior Leadership Especially.... "Providence Medical Group" My Old Boss was an amazing leader who taught me much & was instrumental in getting me my new position.

    ConsThe Human Resources Senior Management Team at Providence Regional Medical Center Everett & Providence Medical Group Mill Creek is a non supportive entity for middle management leaders at Providence. The Human Resources culture is a very "Vengeful Department" that does not support or represent the Mission Statement. In short the Human Resources Senior Level Management at PRMCE & PMG are ineffectual at changing any of the staff culture issues of organizational abuse of resources.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSupport your "Mid-Level Leaders" when they are presented departments with a history of organizational abuse to the facility. If the Managers cannot rely on Human Resources then the whole equation of "changing staff culture" is useless. My parting advice would be to give your Leaders the tools they need to do the job & sometimes that means hurting some feelings. The Human Resources Senior Management Teams at Providence Regional Medical Center Everett & Providence Medical Group in Mill Creek are essentially useless to your managers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
