I worked at Providence Health & Services full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

They have many opertunities. In serveral fields. There are some fields that they say they train in when fresh out of school. And Some you don't have to go to school to get trained in them. This all helps with the job opertunities.

Cons

Not the friendliest place to work if you don't fit into their clicks. It dosen't matter if you do your job well or not. It all depends on if you fit into their clicks on your job opertunities. The training that you recieve when freash out of school is very minimual if any. The programs I used in school were not any of the programs used by this company, so I kind of learned by my mistakes as I went. My training with them was they just turned on the computer and got me into the program that I was to use and said there you go. When I asked questions the person training me would get mad at me and start yelling at me. Therefore, it made me not want to ask her questions. I reported to my suporvisor and when they talked to her things go spread throught the office and things just got worse for me. I refused to let them push me out and was determined to learn as much as they would allow me to which wasn't much. I went home every night in tears. I did not find my experence with them to be a good one and would not recommend anyone I know to work for them.

Advice to Management

I will not give advice for I don't feel it would do any good.

    Upper management has too much power to exercise retaliatory acts against employees

    Management more concerned with moving ahead than helping to create a culture of compassion and fairness for employees

    Advice to Management

    You have been entrusted to lead by the mission and core values. If you get that, you can make Providence a better place to work.

    I have been working at Providence Health & Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is alright, 1% raises the last two years though. Vacation is 5 weeks/yr to start. Competitive tuition reimbursment program. (2000/yr i believe).

    Cons

    Focus is not on the patient, only the bottom line, it shows in all aspects of the hospital. A near monopoly on Anchorage healthcare is partially to blame for lacadaisical leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Return focus to the patient, explore ways to keep core staff content. The latter has truly been neglected.
