    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.

    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.

    I worked at EvergreenHealth full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some people are really dedicated.

    Cons

    HR has a tendency to propose low salaries. I turned down a job offer from them because the salary was very low compared to other offers.

    HR was rude and unhelpful except for Spencer. I'm glad to be gone.

    Their CFO is leaving and a Vice President of Primary Care is leaving. Some people who still work there say layoffs might happen this year.
