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

Pros

Great colleagues--nurses and doctors really care about doing what's right.

Cons

It's a five-hospital system and there is not as much consistency between the hospitals as there should be.

Advice to Management

Make sure your nurse leaders have the advanced degrees that they need to really manage the big picture.

    Pros

    Great location in Corvallis
    Friendly environment
    Pay is in line with the area
    Stood by their workforce in 2008 and avoided layoffs

    Cons

    Understaffed and very hard to sign on new employees currently
    All director's positions in IT were cut with no warning and no explanation which created a tense environment.
    Facilities are cramped, everyone is in a cube

    Advice to Management

    Get your managers trained and review them on a regular basis. You lose more people that way than any other. Good managers create an air of calm and purpose. Poor ones create an environment of fear and resentment that results in high turnover.
