    I worked at Swedish Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Support staff is great and most really look out for one another.

    Cons

    Coorporate executives should not be involved with something that should stay under management level when it comes to dealing with staff and clinic issues. Management should be given the necessary tools and training to deal with issues within their departments. 'Strings being pulled by Coorporate should be cut and power should be given to management to deal with their departments appropriately and should be there for advice or 'last option'. - Most departments seem like Doctors to run the show and management has no say. Too chaotic. It would be better if management and doctors worked together instead of against each other and Coorporate was there only for advice and direction, not directly involved with issues that can be resolved within departments.

    Advice to Management

    Liseten to and treat your support staff better. They really are the back bone of the company/individual departments. For this reason alone is why there is low morale across the board.

    I worked at Swedish Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful benefits and fabulous healthcare.

    Cons

    Top execs not tuned into what's happening in the clinics. Leadership is top heavy and never seemed aligned. Disengaged with staff.

    Advice to Management

    Get out and be seen so at least it looks like you care about your staff. Think before you make drastic cuts and lose extremely good people.
