I worked at PeaceHealth full-time

Pros

I loved the folks I worked with in Bellingham. People there were really nice and people cared about each other.

Cons

Changes in health care in a college, under-employed town were extremely challenging. It brought stress and morale down. I did experience favoritism and it was frustrating to see the mananger do that, when she knew it wasn't ethical.

Advice to Management

It's not the best idea to centralize HR. It diluted the feeling of community at work.

    I worked at PeaceHealth full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Caring, long tenured line staff and line managers. Many mission-driven aspects of the work. Recent changes have degraded both of these positives substantially, however.

    Cons

    A distinct shift to focus on short-term planning, versus long-term strategies that play out in the market. Huge sunk costs in HIT tossed aside for the newest shiny object demonstrates poor planning and vision by senior leaders. Pay lower than average for the region. Unable to compete with larger IDNs, and not able to close the deal to become a larger group themselves

    Advice to Management

    Focus on collaboration between regions and with system groups. Focus on strategies for growth that are attainable, not Peter A.'s empire-building dreams.

    I worked at PeaceHealth (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get to meet new people and the experience was a lot of fun. Also learned real life skills to apply later on in life.

    Cons

    I don't think there were many if at all, con for working at peace health as a volunteer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep I up Sue!
