    I have been working at EvergreenHealth full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've been a coder here for five years. I work from home, but I still feel very involved with the organization and my input is valued. Every time I have brought up an issue it is taken seriously and I get the help I need from my manager, my manager's boss, and even the director of the agency. There are meetings set up, teams pulled together and we figure out how to resolve issues. I have been pulled in to several LEAN projects because they get all of the stakeholders together to design new processes and procedures. The pay is above market. I get two raises a year and a retention bonus every year since ICD-10. They are looking into getting a new electronic record system and they actually asked me what the coders need to be able to do our jobs. Usually, they only consider the clinical and billing side of things. I love my job. They are very receptive to coders learning different types of coding so we don't get to bored

    Cons

    My boss does not micromanage, which is great, except when there is an employee who doesn't pull their weight. I don't think my department has ever been audited(we are a specialized coding group and my boss doesn't know a lot about it). Luckily, my team is pretty good at accepting feedback and we check up on each other.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Respect and gratitude go a long way.

    I have been working at EvergreenHealth full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Co workers are the best. The organization is providing severance.

    Cons

    Despite years of being reassured that we were an essential and valued part of the organization the team I work(ed) for have been told we're being eliminated. Ours is the latest in a series of programs that have been cut.

    Advice to Management

    Cut out the doublespeak. If you are going to operate as a lean, mean, cost cutting machine, say it out loud and own it. Employees are not well served by being reassured up until the day the axe falls.

    I have been working at EvergreenHealth part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tremendous nursing talent/excellent co-workers, great commute if you live on the Eastside

    Cons

    Nepotism/managers coddling their friends, lack of response to excessive absenteeism, driving low morale, lack of meaningful engagement of staff members, frequent and excessive policy changes, cramped/loud work place, top heavy with management, virtually zero growth opportunity

    Advice to Management

    your nurses are your product. take care of them and they will take care good care of your patients. provide them with the resources and tools to do their jobs well. favoritism and refusing to deal with staff who abuse sick policy bring down morale and once that is gone, it is very difficult to bring it back. CEO should attend staff meetings by rotating units instead of setting unreasonable dates and times for staff to meet with him.

    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.

    Being a apart of the healthcare world. It's a very clean. Most departments works well with other departments. Never a dull moment.

    Favoritism

    Pros

    The physicians were amazing and I love that we wanted to care for patients in the same way. To make them feel like friends and family and not just part of another Healthcare system.

    Cons

    New management took over in 2015 and wanted to bring in their own team instead of using the existing team so many people quit or transferred.

    Advice to Management

    Do not play favorites and everyone should be held accountable for what they do, even management. It is a team, not a dictatorship.

    Pros

    Great pay and Benefits, wonderful Co-Workers, great facility. Staffing Ratios are very typical. Patients are nice. Direct managers are easy to work with.

    Cons

    Difficult in my department to get time off. They need better plans for sick calls. We are frequently short on staff. Staff education could be better in terms of making it easier for staff to take advantage of educational opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Look at changing the was vacation is granted and change the way holiday requests for time off are granted. Create ways to cover staffing holes for required education.
