I worked at Harborview Medical Center full-time

Pros

The mission population is wonderful.

Cons

1) Policy is a six month probationary period which means they can fire without reason at 5.5 months and you will have never got your vacation.
2) Administration can make up whatever nonsense they want, and you never actually sign it or see it.
3) Peer evaluations may be requested, but not utilized. Even with stellar evaluation by your peers, you can still be terminated without just cause.

Advice to Management

Take your managers to managerial school. Just because someone is a good clinical RN doesn't mean they are a good manager.
Give people good feedback along with constructive feedback. That is basic management skills.

    I have been working at Harborview Medical Center as a contractor

    Pros

    People are very friendly, work life balance good

    Cons

    If you dont mind sitting all day long processing paperwork then you'll be okay, some people are perfectionist which when telling you that you made an error can come off kind of passive, training not good from leads, and pay is okay.
