What is health insurance like at Virginia Mason?

Pros

The health benefits, excellent senior leadership who are doing good work.

Cons

Terrible and abusive middle managment and supervisors. PTO is below average, toxic environment, if go to HR with complaints you will face retaliation no matter what their policy says. They will also lie to cover themselves. If you take a job with them, remember, HR will not support you. Go to federal agencies such as EEOC and Labor office first.

Advice to Management

Letting a toxic environment fester to the point several people leave is a good short term strategy to stop the complaints about the environment. Sad you'd rather have a high turnover, keep abusive employees, than actually fix the issues you have. You can allow admire the organization and senior leadership so long. So many things are swept under the rug and ignored. That it sours the experience when your day to day is full of mockery, exclusion, and toxicity. Please build up what you have, and get rid of the bad. This is a KNOWN issue internally you can't hide behind. So many employees are referred to as "oh that's just the way they are" or have to be explained to the group why they are such a terrible person. That's unacceptable and condoning.

Does Virginia Mason offer health savings accounts?

Pros

Great insurance with access to a broad medical system. Decent on the job training and many passionate people.

Cons

While the focus is on patients it is clearly not on admin staff. Retention is low due to a bad work environment. Staff do not feel appreciated and are not compensated competitively. Go-getters and innovators lose their spark fast here and go unheard despite corporate dogma stating the opposite goal.

Advice to Management

Be honest with staff. Listen to your admin side labor force. Respect needs expressed by staff and reward go-getters not those who cave to the status quo.

Great insurance with access to a broad medical system.
