I worked at Overlake Medical Center and Clinics part-time (More than a year)

Pros

It was a great work environment and most of the staff is very friendly. I floated between many units as a PCT and most of the time was welcomed and able to get along with everyone.

Cons

Slow to change on the most current best medical practice. Still using paper charting... and the doctors take the charts throughout the day shift which makes it hard for RN's and PCT's to go back and remember what to chart. Still taking temperatures in the ear... not best practice. And some of the nurses there have been there so long they are lazy and get away with it because of seniority when new nurses are running their butts off and getting hassled for little insignificant things.

Advice to Management

Get to know your staff, most importantly the managers and make more of a presence and open to hearing from actual staff members like nurses and techs who have valid concerns.

    I worked at Overlake Medical Center and Clinics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The food is one of the best at a hospital I've ever had in the Pacific Northwest. Great location and wonderful surgeons. For the most part very friendly staff. They are extrenely well positioned being in Bellevue - just off I-405.

    Cons

    Horrible benefits (especially for being a Healthcare organization), delusional leadership, poor pay and growth opportunity. Too many office politics. Their organizational values are not appreciated or encouraged - although they claim to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Pick 2. You can have it fast, cheap or quality. Management - you need to understand this. If it's cheap and quality - it will not be fast. If it's fast and cheap - not quality, etc. Know your job - and have the strength as a manager/leader to back your people. I did not see this while at Overlake Hospital.
