    I have been working at Highline Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    Pros

    The staff is experienced and great to work with to maintain safe and optimal patient care.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    -Great place to gain experience using a diverse set of skills caring for a vulnerable population
    -Great co-workers
    -Local smaller hospital convenient for the local community, convenient for staff

    Cons

    -Management not able to manage budget, leading to a layoff of staff in critical areas of the organization - and then re-hiring staff back.
    -Management not able to engage and energize staff in promoting best practices, professional development.
    -Relationship between staff and management is strained
    -Organizational culture needs to be improved

    Advice to Management

    -Board needs to re-assess c-suite executives to ensure fresh ideas and whether they fit in with organizational culture
    -Culture and professionalism needs to be improved from the top down - not from the bottom to middle as organization has been currently doing.
    -In order to survive in the metropolitan market, effective change management must occur throughout the entire organization. The org needs to invest in quality, fully, not haphazardly. Needs to invest in talented professional staff, the greatest resource of any org.
    -The path the org is on will lead to it being merged or acquired, leading to a loss of the community orientation of the hospital.

    Pros

    Once you are a part of the union for one year you qualify for very good education benefits. They have an amazing brand new ER, and any ER nurse would jump to work in such a beautiful place.

    Cons

    depending of the department you work in, management can be discouraging at times, as well as getting a schedule that is supports you while in school.

    Advice to Management

    As any part of management I would just ask that you be more supportive of offering helpful schedules to those who are in school trying to further their careers.

    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.
