    Excellent company with a great culture

    Nursing Center (Current Employee)
    Mount Angel, OR

    ProsGreat Benefits, competitive pay, room for advancement.

    ConsStaffing shortages with a high rate of turnover for lower level employees requiring a lot of agency workers who are do not care about the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire extra employees for call or part-time to keep agency out and morale up among Providence employees. It is difficult to take advantage of PTO if there is no coverage. Caregiver burnout could be prevented if ongterm staff was allowed to take their PTO

    Great mission, excellent professional people

    Human Resources Leader (Former Employee)
    Renton, WA

    ProsAn organization that truly values people and wants to make a positive difference in the world.

    ConsPeople work so hard - sometimes too hard - and might burn out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCheck in with people and be willing to hear if they are overwhelmed and worn out. Take some things off their plates even if they're willing to work more and harder for all the right reasons. People just can't go forever working so hard.

    Refreshing to work in a place where people walk the talk

    Business Analyst (Current Employee)
    Renton, WA

    Prosi'm grateful every day to be able to come in to work and live our mission. We serve every person we meet with our core values - patients, customers and other employees. This is a refreshing change from previous fortune 100 employers.

    Consit's a non-profit ... resources always seem to be stretched way too thin. It can also take a lot of time and consensus building to get complex tasks completed. running a business by committee is tough.

    Providence is a great place to work.

    Director (Current Employee)
    Portland, OR

    ProsMission oriented. Respect for work life balance. Many long time employees. Fair to staff in comp and benefits.

    ConsLack of common standards across regions, especially accountability toward cost. Disruptive personalities are tolerated way too long, especially in mid management.

    Advice to Senior Managementwash region needs to consolidate. they are 5 fiefdoms within the state. they need to get with the program and flatten out like oregon did for the past 20 years.
