    I have been working at Providence Health & Services

    Pros

    I know by working for Providence that I am making a positive impact on the community. That means a lot to me.

    Cons

    Providence can be slow to adopt change, and that can prove challenging to those of us who are early adopters.

    I have been working at Providence Health & Services full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's great to work for a company when you agree with their core values and the ways that it gives back to the community. The benefits include opportunities to grow, which include learning opportunities (in house classes for ex. Crucial Conversations) and tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    This company is in a period of lots of change within their infrastructure. Change is not always a bad thing but you must exercise patience through this time.

    I have been working at Providence Health & Services

    Pros

    Providence pays well and it is a great place to work because everyone smiles and is committed to doing a great job. Also, it is a 4x magnet hospital which speaks very highly. They make work-life balance easy by providing great food in the cafeteria for employees at low cost.

    Cons

    Challenges: there are a lot of changing of protocols in effort to make things more efficient. This company is more concerned with productivity than patient care at times, which can be frustrating.

    I have been working at Providence Health & Services

    Pros

    There is some amazing talent here. Worked with some incredibly driven and creative people.

    Cons

    Nepotism and cronyism has elevated some of the less talented and more socially awkward into positions of middle management leadership where they shouldn't be. There are exceptions of course.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in a third party for a while for hiring leadership positions.

    Pros

    Decent pay, work/life balance. Disconnect between regions and the system office. Too much change in too little time. The tendency to keep bad employees on for too long. Can be political/bureaucratic.

    Cons

    Going through lots of structure changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a plan and stick with it.

    Everyone is very patient focused, highly skilled with driven management teams

    Maintain mission focus, be flexible, keep caring like you have shown you do.
