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

Pros

The company as a whole has made a HUGE change and it encourages all employees to participate in a team effort. Their purpose has become more relevant to healthcare and has spent money and time to improve its infrastucture and functionality, so that it is a prominent name in healthcare.

Cons

Management still has some things to improve on. The opportunities are still limited and promotional options are lacking. Policies need to be improvised. Some depts. need some help with improving employee satisfaction, which has to do with certain management personnel, who don't have the management skills necessary to perform the job.

Advice to Management

Please review management and supervisor positions. If problems are occurring with employees and supervisors, maybe the managers/supervisor are the problem, and not the employees. Since your policy is to make it so that people
want to work there and enjoy their jobs.

    I worked at Providence Health & Services full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most of the employees truly live the mission statement and core values. The benefits and work-life balance are very good.

    Cons

    If you are part of the succession plan, you will have a tough time moving up. There is a disconnect between senior leaders and everyone else. It's a shame nothing is done about it.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just listen to the employees via the annual survey, DO something about the results. The good 'Ol boy club will sink eventually as you are so top heavy, especially within PSMS (system office).

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    There are great hardworking employees who are trying to do the best they can with little support
    Pay and benefits are Ok, but could be more competitive

    Cons

    Constant reorganizations are making current employees nervous about their jobs and thus making people nervous to offer be innovative or creative for fear of doing the wrong thing and getting "laid off". There is no support or professional development offered by senior or mid-level management. The dollar is the bottom line, not the patient anymore. Huge disconnect between regional and local administration and the community it is there to serve.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication and respect for employees and patients is a necessary place to start in your long battle to become what you once were.
