    I have been working at Swedish Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers and patients for the overall majority.
    Neuroscience department has amazing management.
    The doctors are great.

    Cons

    Swedish's financial crisis has increased layoffs.
    Our department was promised a bonus if we met outrageous goals which we did in 2011. We did not receive the bonus due to the financial crisis which I am fine with as long as people keep their jobs. But they did not announce this until 2 days before our paychecks were issued and this was during the Christmas season. On top of this they announced it the same time to management so they had no time to prepare for their staffs inevitable upset.
    The insurance change which causes staff to spend more time on the computer by forcing them to log activity levels etc. A little silly really.

    Advice to Management

    Get the budget under control.
    Stop firing or offering early retirment to people in the hospital to cut costs and then plan to add more doctors without sufficent staff.


  2. "Solid organization"
