    I worked at Providence Health & Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Really strive to apply their wonderful Mission Statement. Staff growth and and encouraged and suppored. Education if in Health Care is supported with some financial incentives. Clinical environments are always of the visually and environmentally pleasing and clinical equipment is alway topnotch and in adequate supply.
     Satisfaction depends so much on department management style in a system of this size. There is an annual Job Satisfaction Survey that is sent to each employee annually and is anonymous. After analysis, each manager is given their results/feedback, and I perceive that they are also given job improvement plans and expectations. Positive results should be reflected n next years survey.

    Cons

    For a company who's main product is the provision of Health Care Services and actually has a Health Plan branch, I found the benefit package to be rather pallid; High deductable, high copays especially for specialist and diagnostic services. Employee contribution for their monthly premium is also more then one would hope for... especially because Providence Health Plan is part of the system. Depending on your manager, you may find yourself stuck in your wage scale with increases based only on cost of living with a cap on the percentage each year of howmuch you may be given as a merit/performance raise... averages about 2-3 %... So be sure you are happy with your starting wage because unless your job position is re-evaluated for grade, you scale may stay the same for years....

    Advice to Management

    Greg, Jack... give your employees a bit richer package with a lower premium...

    I worked at Providence Health & Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Active nursing unit councils, tuition and education reimbursement, competitive pay.

    Cons

    High focus on productivity rather than acuity. EPIC electronic health documentation system was built poorly.

    Advice to Management

    Stay active within departments and continue to have face time with floor staff. Continue the professional development program and support unit councils.
