Pros

Working at Harborview is enriching - both personally and professionally. The medical challenges are as diverse as the population. Patients are treated with respect regardless of their circumstances. The physicians are tops in their field and the nurses are skilled, warm and attentive. As an employee, I learned something everyday that I worked there.

Cons

As a trauma facility and regional burn center, the stress level is high. The enormous amount of charity care creates financial challenges that must be met, often resulting in disagreements about the best way to do that.

Advice to Management

Make good hires and then listen to and trust your employees. Their perspective is valuable. Micro- managing kills creativity and motivation.
