    I have been working at Legacy Health (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are several positive aspects joining LH. One, the team atmosphere is a strong component of the culture. Each member is a source of information and willing to knowledge-share. Another great characteristic is the work-life balance. Coming from an industry that considers 24/7 access the norm, the balance here at LH has been a breath of fresh air, and I am thankful for it! The benefits are excellent for employees and their families.

    Cons

    I have not experienced too many negatives as of yet. One has been the ability to adopt new technologies. This is a slow process. However, I have noticed some quicker, more agile areas where the culture's agility is increasing.
    Another negative is that certain employment entry levels have low salary ranges. The inflexibility regarding salary is a disadvantage against most other industry/market segments. With the flatness of the organization, the opportunity to 'move-up' via title/level to gain the next salary step, are far and few between. This was the one area that made me hesitant to join. If there is a timeliness to salary improvements for these individuals, that will keep attrition lower.

    Advice to Management

    One item I would recommend is to have more executive buy-in and approval to certain initiatives, such as technology use. Having an executive(s) lead by example is not just good for the employees but also for the overall organization.

    I have been working at Legacy Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule in a non-punitive environment. Freedom to present ideas that may be different from the rest of the group and pilot them to see if they work or fail.

    Cons

    Paid time off is limited to when your respective doctor wants to take their vacations. We are asked to either flex (go home and use vacation time or unpaid) or float our time to another clinic.

    I have been working at Legacy Health part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Legacy puts patients first and empowers their nurses to do the right thing. They have one of the best pay scales and nurse to patient ratios.

    Cons

    It is tough to move departments if you don't have previous experience with that departement. You can get stuck in your current position.

    Advice to Management

    Give nurses a chance to grow and develop by giving them opportunities to work in different departments.

    Pros

    Pretty good health benefits. Getting to be a part of a meaningful mission.

    Cons

    Many of the leaders within Legacy do not listen to the suggestions made by those on the front lines. When incidents occur, it comes as a shock to them, when in reality, they were probably warned many times before that an incident could occur and choose to ignore it.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Appreciate them. You want to keep good, hard-working people. Don't push them away.
