    I have been working at Providence Health & Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy working for Providence and will continue as long as they will have me. I enjoy the work/life balance and they are really in tune with taking care of YOU. I enjoy coming to work each day and seeing positive people. There are always resources for me if I get behind in my work, or if I ask for help with the work load. AWESOME benefits and pay.

    Cons

    Sometimes you have many managers asking things from you, but I don't think they have communicated. Sometimes there are too many "hands in the pot" and it's hard to tell who really needs what.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your staff on a regular basis and make them feel inspired.

    Pros

    Whether you're a doctor or a back-office IT specialist, you will go work every day knowing that what you do will save or improve the lives of others.

    Cons

    Providence employees do not get the time or budget (expense reimbursements) to attend training and/or self-improvement classes.

    Pros

    The staff I work with are friendly, helpful and go above and beyond for our patients and each other. One of them recently adopted a cat from an elderly patient who really wanted it to find a good home when she had to move! Couldn't ask for better people to spend my days with.

    Cons

    I wish we were more progressive in our approach to controversial medical issues. Also, my salary at Providence compares favorably to those of colleagues at other organizations, but I have heard that this is not the case for other disciplines. Search carefully depending what you do and what you believe in!

    Advice to Management

    Encourage staff to spread the word about open positions. Some of the best people we have hired recently have been referred by current employees who already have some insight into whether they would be a good fit.

    And says that it is challenging yet rewarding. It seems like it would be a great place to work with good benefits.

    The cons would be that the commute would be very long and it would be my first job in a hospital setting

    Pros

    Flexibility, and working Monday - Friday. We only schedule for providers, we don't talk to patients.

    Cons

    I'm always worried that our job will be outsourced.

    Advice to Management

    My manager is the best. Remember that a change in one area will affect another. Know the impact a change will make to every step of the patient experience before implementation of change.

    Pros

    The leadership has really improved - there is a genuine caring and encouragment to further your education. The manager of our department is also a wonderful mentor, and ouor concerns are listened to and addressed continually.

    Cons

    nothing comes to mind of any significance

    Advice to Management

    How about paying tuition up front for full time employees? Tuition reimbursment is good, but lots of us cannot spare the money up front with a family to take care of. If a full time employee can work out a plan with his manager and enroll in an on-line school, Providence can pay the tuition up front. the employee would be less burdened and stressed and the education could happen quicker.
