    I worked at Providence Health & Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many of the recruiters were nice to work with and the hiring managers were not as difficult as some I've recruited for in the past.

    Cons

    Lead Recruiters, Managers have zero respect or genuine concern for front line recruiters. Cliques are rampant and if they don't like you or you aren't part of the cool clique club, you become a worker bee with no room for growth. They promote ONLY who they like, they give the most open requisitions to the recruiters they don't like. You work hard hoping they will appreciate and value what you bring to the table but all you get is constant disrespect. When I was there, some recruiters had over 125 open positions while others have 20! Completely un-balanced and only based on who they liked or who whined about having too much work. So many recruiters quit and it's only getting worse. I would NEVER refer a friend or family member to work for Providence Recruiting / Talent Acquisition.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to care about your recruiters. Stop the "cool people only" cliques, stop the inequitable pay and promotion practices and maybe, just maybe you will keep your department from falling apart!

    Pros

    Large organization, room for advancement and relocation if desired.

    Cons

    Salary on low end due to non-profit status, can be very "clique-ish" depending on department, top performers not recognized.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and get rid of low performers.

    I have been working at Providence Health & Services (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You know how companies spend hours coming up with mission statements and then you never see evidence of them following that mission. I've worked for Providence for almost 30 years and I can attest that the primary reason I've not looked elsewhere is because it really is at the core of what we do. We are here to show the love of Jesus through compassionate care and respect and that is supported and expected all the way through the executive team.

    Cons

    We have over 70,000 employees. Because employees are human, on any given day you might not feel like an individual is living the mission but you will see that everywhere - the difference is that you will see most of us living the mission and values on a regular basis because it is truly who we are and who our organization is. Providence isn't perfect - no company is - but on my worst day at work, the one thing I've never questioned was whether our mission and values were real or whether they were an expectation of the staff. They are....and if someone doesn't support them, they can be invited to look for employment elsewhere. We are a faith based institution so we don't have to tip toe around issues of faith. We own it and we love it!

    I worked at Providence Health & Services (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Upper management seems to be very sharp, but is not always focused on what goes on with the troops in the trenches. Patient care at the expense of their employees' health and well-being is their main focus...ALWAYS. After all, patients bring in $$$ and employees just drain the coffers.

    Cons

    Emphasis is placed on Providence's Core Values and work/life balance when employees are first hired. Unfortunately, what employees learn is that this is a lot of lip service. This organization has grown too large to monitor, enforce or encourage these important concepts. I was amazed daily by how much employees get away with and only the most heinous of offenses are addressed. It terrifies me to even thing about ever being a patient at any hospital because for all the horrible things I've witnessed at Providence, I know they are still better than most hospitals.

    Advice to Management

    Refrain from asking for feedback from employees (referencing all the pesky surveys this organization practically requires employees to submit, then ignores the results) if you don't ever plan to implement any of their ideas or suggestions. It's very dehumanizing to have a horrible situation continue simply because those in authority think employees are just whining.
