    I have been working at Legacy Health full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Company works for fairness and equity amongst staff, as well as work-life balance.

    Cons

    Being a non-profit organization, the salary is not as high as working for private medical systems. Also the annual employee payout, known as Strive has historically been based on metrics that are not generally influenced by the average worker, which makes the difficultly in consistently achieving them a point of contention for most staff.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Legacy Health full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    good wage, good vacation, good retirement.

    Cons

    Awful upper management, poor health benefits if you ever find yourself outside of the Portland area.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers, they often can help reduce costs with outside the box thinking that won't affect your patients! Upper management makes decisions based upon numbers and algorithms not knowing what it actually takes to care for the patient! Grow your communities not your pockets!

    I have been working at Legacy Health full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    U really gotta try to get fired. And I mean TRY. Keep trying. The bus pass discount is fine.

    Cons

    You really gotta try to get fired. And I mean TRY. You can tread water for years, fall behind, become terrible at your job, call out sick once a week (or more), not work, leave shift whenever the mood strikes, misbehave and generally be a wart on the back of coworkers and the company and they'd rather keep you in staff than go to the trouble of firing you (and risk paperwork or a lawsuit or complaint about missed...

    Advice to Management

    Ever notice how little comes out of those thousands and thousands of meeting hours certain people seem to always need? It's not helping the company or anyone else, but it provides for great socializing time not actually having to do anything real or productive. Other employees make that lost time up and don't appreciate it.

    I have been working at Legacy Health full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Pay scale is very comparable to other hospitals in the system. At the Salmon Creek Medical Center they have made every effort to ensure they hire pleasant personalities. Coworkers get along very well so far. This is slowly changing as management missteps are leading to discord in the ranks.

    Cons

    Lets review: 3 MILLION dollar fine for not ensuring lunch breaks from the Oregon Labor and Industry; the Legacy Meridian Park Medical Center is laying off all RTs and having them rebid for their positions. Some old timers are now offered on-call night shift. They have weaponized the method of reporting mistakes instead of using it to correct mistakes. Legacy likes to advertise their "Just Culture". This idea is used very...

    Advice to Management

    I know you all want to make it to upper management. Abusing your work force is not going to get you there. You should be protecting your workers, making sure the staffing is not going to be marginal but manageable. Take responsibility. If there is too much going on for the amount of workers you have this will cause friction. This is your doing, take responsibility, back your workers.
