    I worked at Providence Health & Services as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent company. Good values. Dedicated to improved health and well being.

    Cons

    A bit of a conflict with the non profit altruistic values that started the company and the progressive profit seeking mentality of some of the new management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on the mission.

    Pros

    Great Health Benefits, Great people to work with.

    Cons

    It isn't the same as when the sisters ran it. Internal politics can be a bit much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The focus is to cut labor costs and services. This can get lost on the average worker.
