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

    Pros

    Legacy Health is a constantly changing, healthy organization. It's small enough to feel personal, yet large enough to offer career growth opportunities. Legacy has shown a demonstrable commitment to diversity.

    Cons

    Healthcare can be a tough industry. Financial pressures and community needs are great. Legacy employees work very hard to balance these realities.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to the mission, no matter how tough things get.

    I have been working at Legacy Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Health benefits are ok at best

    Cons

    Visionless leadership, clueless VPs/Directors/Management, no career growth, and years behind other companies. Most of the frontline managers in the Information Services department have little current or relevant technical experience and come from project management or non-technical backgrounds where pushing paper is more highly valued than leading, mentoring, and building efficient and high performing technology teams. If you are looking for a job with little to no expectations, no career growth, no training, opportunities, or recognition then join this company.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership needs to recognize they are the biggest existing problem in this organization that seeks to do nothing but create bureaucracy and stifle ideas of forward thinkers. Management only listens to vendors, spends the majority of their time fighting internal battles and politics, and generally does little to empower teams or deliver value to the organization.

    I have been working at Legacy Health full-time

    Pros

    Pay is good but only if you have been with them for decades.

    Cons

    The leadership and management will use you and throw you away like a rag.
    The staff is incredibly lazy. No one is willing to work. They just want to come in, spend time, get paid for just showing up their faces. KEEP DOING THIS FOR YEARS AND GET INCREMENTS.
    Salaries and bonuses are not performance based. Rather years worked at Legacy based. So no need to do any hard work just stick around and sit around and get paid.
    They should have signs up at main entrance saying ' Heavenly abode for Lazy people. Come and sit on your behinds forever.'
    WORK HERE IF YOU LOVE TO GOSSIP. Gossip and chatter is all employees do. I dont blame them. They have to do something while sitting around or it will get boring. Its not like their salaries depend on any performances or targets.
    The Departments work in silos with hardly any teamwork towards achieving any company initiatives.
    Lack lustre work environment. If you want to work and learn and achieve something at work, go find another company.

    Advice to Management

    Loose the personal egoes and tendency to gossip and get some targets achieved.

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

    Pros

    The staff (MDs, RNs, CNAs, housekeeping, volunteers) are dedicated, kind, intelligent and unified in their purpose.
    As a Registered Nurse this is the most wonderful group of clinical professionals I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    Extreme micromanagement
    Volatility in management
    Constantly changing expectations staff are held accountable to at random
    Staff treated like objects who can be manipulated whimsically
    Frequent flexing of staff, at times up to 50% of shifts for CNAs
    No accountability for management
    Unsafe medication documentation system creating an unsafe practice environment for nurses

    Advice to Management

    Hold management accountable to Legacy's standards. Broaden the review of ICARE reports to ensure they are addressed. Update the documentation system. Cultivate and manifest integrity.

    "The standard you walk past is the standard you accept".
