    I worked at EvergreenHealth full-time

    Pros

    The patients are great. The interventional doctors are superior. As a whole, the medical staff treats the patients very well and it's a pretty clean place.

    Cons

    The management only cares about profit How much can you do, how fast and we would prefer to pay you as little as possible. They spread staff pretty thin and new grads are preferred due to $. Their treatment of employees is like living in the hunger games.

    Advice to Management

    Fear isn't the only reason to do a good job. Try some praise or education. Try some experienced workers. Too many inexperienced people leads to mistakes.

    Pros

    If you live in the Eastside it is an easier commute and no toll bridges.

    Cons

    Schedules and hours are very inconsistent. Usually short because they make you pick up call back shifts and do not pay above regular rate of pay. Some shifts we work short because there is nobody on call. Other shifts you can be sent home low census or called out straight away. Sometimes the only shift you can sign up for is a call back shift and if you don't get called in you make 2 hours of call back pay which is like $4 and hour or something. When you are hired they will tell you there is always open shifts but they don't tell you this means call back and low census and how often that happens. Buyer beware. They are constantly changing their policies and processes, pulling the rug out from under you. Management has little regard for the health, safety, and well being of the employees. Focus is money and the bottom line and rarely about the patients or staff they hire to care for their patients.
    Horrible management. Preen the dead wood in management and you might have a decent place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Better staff engagement if process changes need to be changed. And actually engage the staff the changes will affect, not other staff who take advantage of this to pad their schedules and personal needs. Act with more integrity and stop playing favorites and cutting people sweet secret deals. You have zero credibility when you demand buy in from the staff you fail to engage up front on process changes. (This is management 101, by the way).

    Pros

    I enjoy working at Evergreen as an Occupational Therapist for the past several years. The other therapists are team oriented. You can take advantage of opportunities to grow by teaching, sitting on hospital wide committees and train and provide coverage on other units. One other advantage, parking is free.

    Cons

    Weekend shifts are shared among staff.

    Pros

    Good benefits & additional education options

    Cons

    Years ago employees were much happier, but that has sadly changed. Current Management pretends to be supportive but us far from. More often then not departments are understaffed. Everyone gets the same pay increase which means zero incentive, & it has recently become one of the lowest paying in the area.

    Advice to Management

    The company is not what it used to be. Less meetings/talking & more doing. Support your staff as they are busy working hard caring and supporting their patients. Reward hard working employees (& not just with more work)

    Favoritism

    Pros

    Many of the co-workers are knowledgeable, and available if you are unsure of anything. Team work is a must and shows this skill off very well.

    Cons

    Feels like at times there aren't much growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Takes suggestions from core staff that make healthcare run, like RNs and Techs.

    Pros

    The patients and their families were the only reason I would report to work each shift.

    Cons

    The lab management did not train the new employees properly and instead of correcting the problem, bullied the new and poorly trained employees, and encouraged the current employees to bully and ostracize the new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility for your own mess and discourage cliques and bullying within the laboratory employees.
