    I worked at EvergreenHealth part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good employees at staff levels.

    Cons

    Management promotes personnel who are malleable but, not those who are looking out for the staff members. HR lives in another world.

    Advice to Management

    Don't cut people and programs which support the nurses. Don't downsize employee recognition to save your bonuses.

    I worked at EvergreenHealth full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Dedicated co-workers. Pretty hospital campus. Very good cafateria choices. Many capital improvement projects.

    Cons

    Evergreen is an institution rife with hypocricy and mismanagement. It's stated mission is to "advance the health of the community it serves", yet over the past five years it has terminated myriad public health contracts with King County that have provided life saving services to aging, disabled and low income populations. It also ranks dead last among area public district hospitals in the percentage of charity care to total revenue that it provides to the community.

    Advice to Management

    You are a public district hospital, not a for- profit hospital. Stop mismanaging taxpayer funds and serve all members of the community.

    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.
