Job growth/development, good pay and overall a great company to work for
Long hours but that’s normal for healthcare

Good people to work with and an opportunity to help both individuals and communities.
The company values productivity statistics over wisdom. The older nurse who might be a bit slower will make up for it in wisdom and judgement. I was with this company from 1995 to 2000, then from 2003 until 2023, at which point I was fired for not meeting productivity. Of course, the managers know how to check all the boxes when it comes to the process of firing and over the last 6 to 9 months I worked for Legacy, I was moved from position to position with different protocols and workflows in each. I stayed in close contact with my manager, faced each change with optimism, did my best to keep up, and was reassured by my manager that my position was safe. My biggest mistake was not getting every promise in writing. I trusted. Finally, when in the final placed in the final position, I tried my best to improve my productivity to meet expectations. I even asked for additional training from a nurse who was meeting productivity expectations, which wasn't given. Interestingly, while my manager was firing me, she acknowledged that I had met productivity goals over the last week, but she was still firing me. What I knew was that the day shift was a nurse long and the manager needed to let someone go. I suspect that since I was nearing the top of my pay scale and since there was no union to represent me - I was fired! It made good business sense. My advice for any nurse who thinks she will finish her career with Legacy - watch your back.

Good overall work culture. Competitive PTO, starting out - accrued and multiplied by hours worked. Insurance plans/benefits are competitive.
Pay doesn't keep up with inflation OR local cost-of-living unless you're a physician or maybe a midlevel practitioner. Takes forever to move up in PTO savings - like, 5+ years to move up a bracket. Typical redundant, top-heavy, high-paid admin structure that is weighing down corporations all over.

Very inclusive, sometimes too much. Loosened the dress code, which was not all appropriate. Co-worker are great and supportive. Legacy works at keeping staff up to date on trainings. Unfortunately, this is often on your own time if you are on salary. Many of the negatives are common in the healthcare community.
There are too many levels of management. The upper management will never meet the actual healthcare workers that provide patient care and bring in the money. Most are clueless to what is happening in the day to day work and our challenges. The vacation time off is the worst I have had in 25 years and healthcare benefits are extremely poor.

Reliable work, work in all areas of pharmacy
difficult to accommodate schedule to life outside of the pharmacy
- 3.0Nov 6, 2023Primary Care PhysicianFormer Employee, more than 5 yearsPortland, OR
Workforce was diverse, values inclusivity, individual clinics have great potential though limited by administrative constraints.
Poor communication from upper management. Leadership decisions often felt in opposition to vision/values of clinical members (physicians, support staff, clinic directors and managers). Much work was uncompensated though this likely applies broadly to many primary care professions.

Pays well. Never had issues getting all my breaks
It's almost impossible to transfer to another job. Legacy seems to give preference to new hires to fill open positions
