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

    Pros

    * Community centered focus and mission
    * Prefers to promote from within
    * Huge company, so many opportunities to move around if you don't like your current position

    Cons

    * some lower management is given more power than they should have, and teams under them suffer
    * budgeting doesn't always make sense - example, new expansion projects, costing millions of dollars, are initiated, while other locations go decades without updates or basics like using competent outside vendors.
    * Pay increases don't line up with cost of living increases

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

    Pros

    Full benefits even if employed part-time. Meet lots of great co-workers. Job gives good experience in acute mental health care.

    Cons

    Over qualified employees are not being compensated based on experience and education. Pay is not high enough. Lack of communication from management/management seems very distant and uninvolved in actual management of staff. High-stress and constantly under-staffed.

    Pros

    Leadership/administrative team make themselves visible and participate in a lot of events where employees can meet them/get to know them. Legacy Health has adopted a great Lean model that has trickled down to many of the departments, including the pharmacy department. Constantly working on community and also diversity initiatives.

    Cons

    Pharmacy department in all sites does not get enough recognition for their services and initiatives. It would be great if all staff knew that pharmacy week is in October and would acknowledge our services as we do with RNs and MDs, etc. Apart from that, not many cons.

    Pros

    Support is offered if you're interested in growing and moving up the 'ladder'. Several policies are put into place and even revisited to improve the process. Our staff exceeded my customer service expectations. Unknowing to them, I was a current employee when treated at their facility.

    Cons

    Clinics: Lack of communication when requested to work at another location; i.e. if already staffed but then sends more employees to that site, making it difficult to find workspace. Bring the cafeteria cards back.
