    I have been working at Providence Health & Services full-time

    Pros

    Generally a fun and supportive environment. There is a bunch of change happening which is scary and rubbing some people the wrong way but I think overall the organization is turning in the right direction and will result in a better place for caregivers and the org. In many departments there is opportunity for career growth and support. Great benefits and there is a genuine emphasis on balancing work with family.

    Cons

    Change is tough and growing pains can be a challenge. In some departments salary is not competitive with other healthcare organization. There can be a lack of communication and a lot of bureaucracy in decision making.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't skimp on employee pay, being competitive will help attract the people we need to manage growth and continue to improve processes.

    Pros

    Providence as an organization cares about its employees. The people there are wonderful, caring, friendly and involved in the community.

    Cons

    The Epic project was chaotic, not well organized and moved way to quickly. Wonderful people were overworked and burned out quickly. Providence lost a lot of great employees because of the pace of the project. Also contact reorganizations also laid off good, long term employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that your best talent does not walk out the door.

    Clean, well maintained, and up to date facilities and equipment. Friendly office atmosphere. The company provides a free annual Trimet pass to all employees.

    My department was asked to take on more and more responsibility including the training of other departments, but our pay rate was never updated to reflect the increase in workload and acquired skills.

    Pros

    Knowledgeable peers who are fun and close and succeed without management. Long term employees dedicated to the patient and making the hospital what it is. We make the grade! Unfortunately many staff stay because they need their jobs and love the patients and our friends are here.

    Cons

    Administration is very dishonest, makes false promises, lazy and are not invested in their employees. They are top heavy with many who do not know their roles and often micro-manage. They continue to overlook staff that should be promoted unless desperate. They encourage and create triangulation. You're very lucky if your a favorite but if not, move on. They take your office away and let them be ruined down but their offices are beautiful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the walk, talk the talk and learn the jobs before you make changes to them. investigate how you contribute to staff satisfaction and provide staff with the same increases, nice offices and benefits you have.
