    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.

    Commitment to providing great quality care and to caring for all who are in need. Strong community involvement

    Projects and programs are vulnerable to changes in healthcare economy--as it true for most non-profit healthcare organizations.

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

    Pros

    "Doing the right thing" is supported.

    Cons

    Insufficiently empowered and trained medical assistants.

    Advice to Management

    Add trained nurses to Primary Care clinic or educate/empower MAs up to limits of their licenses.

    I have been working at Legacy Health full-time

    Pros

    It is a new, clean, updated children's hospital. Everyone cares about giving great patient care. The management is supportive and try their best to make work-life balance possible.

    Cons

    Like any hospital, people get disgruntled with changes and they are sometimes passed down without much notice to the staff. The benefits are just okay. Maternity leave is pretty bad.

    Advice to Management

    If change is being made, you should have good, evidence-based reasons why that change is worthwhile and be honest and transparent with staff about why those changes are taking place.

    Pros

    They care for the community.

    Cons

    The culture does not take lunch breaks. It is systematic and an endemic issue. The Frontline management is subpar!

    Advice to Management

    You really need to look at the hiring practices of Salmon Creek ICU and IMCU. You are paying way too much in benefits and having way too much employee turnover because of frequent hiring of new staff that is unnecessary!

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits but overall I did not care for the organization.

    Very hard to make/implement positive change, minimal if any annual pay increases, very political. Did not like working there. Left after only 8 months due to my talents not bring utilized as promised. Very disappointed with the organization.
