    I worked at Washington Hospital Healthcare System full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Regular employees have NO VOICE! Only when it's something that management wants to hear. Upper management is being paid WAY TOO MUCH! for what they really do.

    Advice to Management

    For the Associate Administrators, take this hospital in a new direction before it gets bought-out like the others. Get away from the present views of the CEO. Work as a team and don't wait for a pat on the back from the CEO, because you won't get it. Fight to make decisions without shaking in your boots and waiting forever for her to make the final decision. Her ego is sending this hospital down the tubes and the employees with it!

    Most of the people at WHHS are fabulous; however, the leadership team rules with fear and intimidation.

    Pros

    The staff members at WHHS care for their patients and the patient's well-being is considered to be their first priority. Employees (non-management) in general exhibit a team player attitude and create a feeling of camaraderie in the workplace.

    Cons

    The leadership of this organization rule with fear and intimidation. Unfortunately, this leadership style has affected the culture of the organization and creates an underlying sense of fear which prohibits healthy contribution and growth. Leadership interaction is often unnecessarily negative and punitive regardless of facts. Team members are very aware of the consequences of speaking the truth and due to fear will deliver messages in alignment with senior leaders to prevent termination.

    Advice to Management

    WHHS leadership should embrace positive collaboration and truly empower members of the WHHS team to transform the culture of the organization to a positive environment where the goals of the organization and community can be met more effectively. The organizational culture should be such that negativity, fearful management tactics, and intimidation is considered intolerable throughout all levels of the organization.
