    I worked at Highline Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Love my co-workers great culture to work in, patient population although difficult is exactly the people I want to work with, Immediate nurse supervisor approachable and was always willing to work with me, decent benifits

    Cons

    CHI bought out Highline, alot of unwelcomed changed have happened including cuts in benefits. Equipment is lacking, products changed constantly to what seems like a cheaper version. Benefits are great if you are willing to use only Highline providers, but lack if you want to go somewhere else. Pay is lowest in King county.

    Pros

    The people are awesome and the facilities are very nice.

    Cons

    The culture is unhealthy and promotes putting in minimal effort. There are people cutting corners, creating extra burdens on others, but management will not hold individuals accountable. Emails to the whole group are sent as reminders of policies and expectations, but individuals are not help responsible for sherking.

    Compensation and benefits are sub par at least for ER Technicians.

    CHI Franciscan has taken over the medical center and there are a lot of unknowns with future compensation expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Address the poor culture and hold individuals accountable. 90% of staff are amazing, but the other 10% need a kick in the pants. It's up to you to provide that.

    Night shift for me personally. I loved the action part of the position- hated the hours. (1900-0700).

    Pros

    Better than average benefits and salaries, dependent on education & experience. I had the good fortune to work with some excellent people.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance sometimes difficult if you are not of the parenting sector, you get to take a back seat. Recent changes have brought a rather hostile element to the work area, and a lot of politics.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that your success rest on the people who work for you, you should not take them for granted.
