If you have a benefited position, they provide you with 3 different health insurance packages and generous PTO accrual.
Health insurance is top notch, dental and vision great coverage and low premiums
Providence has the best Benefit package. Medical, Vision, Dental, RX. Completely covered.
There are I believe only 6 paid holidays per year.
Time off has to be scheduled far in advanced, though is generous. Pay, health benefits, and retirement benefits are also generous, and there is opportunity for continuing education reimbursement.
PTO and sick time share the same request time
Great benefits, PTO accrual great, but pto is awarded based on seniority (this is a union job). You are better off calling in for something important until you have been there a few years during prime time (may thru Sept).
Since I started a few years ago, they've forced employees to use an app to 'earn' a defined contribution for their health benefit, by logging steps, of all things. In spite of numerous complaints from employees, they're using the same app again this year. They recently announced they will be eliminating the extended illness benefit (hours accrued by employees that can be used to cover extended illness after PTO is exhausted). Some long-term employees have earned hundreds of hours of EIB that will simply go away as of 2020. The mental health services are pretty much nonexistent: if you don't have a substance abuse issue or want to engage in brief CBT in a group setting, you're out of luck; this current, preferred model for the adult psychiatry does not provide for 1:1 therapy. Then there's the issue of how NOT gay-friendly the physicians are. When I asked my psychiatrist to add sildenafil to my existing antidepressant regimen (because the meds cause anorgasmia and erectile dysfunction), he became visibly distressed and uncomfortable and insisted that I ask my primary care provider to fill the prescription for me. When I informed him that all of my other psychiatrists had had no trouble with filling such a prescription, he had nothing to say. I still haven't been able to find an available psychiatrist who accepts Providence who doesn't work at their clinics. There seem to be maybe a dozen in the city, none of whom are currently accepting new patients. I tried to use the provider finder portal to find a new psychiatrist, only to discover, after making several calls, that none of the people listed in the portal worked at/for Providence anymore (person at office/clinic, "Never heard of him. Are you sure of the name?"). My experiences with having health care with OHSU and Kaiser were far and away superior to any of my experiences at Providence.
PTO used up when we are low census so not enough for vacation Management has favoritism More work less help Day shift doesn't pay well
They did not disclose the no PTO for the first 6 months rule anytime during the offer process on during new hire on boarding
