    Listen to employees concerns don`t ignore them or brush over them. Ex. Lunch should be in a timely manner not always varying because someone else went late to lunch or didn`t show up to work.

    Pros

    Diverse group of professionals; Exceptional training programs including simulation; Community hospital feel with access to UW Medicine resources; nice cafeteria

    Cons

    Campus layout can be somewhat confusing to navigate initially, unfortunate that there is not a covered walkway from parking garage to hospital

    Advice to Management

    I would love to see front line rounds from all levels of management - staff are very motivated by seeing the talented people they work for

    I worked at Northwest Hospital & Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Senior leadership advocates strongly for development and support of nursing staff. Lots of opportunities for growth into leadership positions and certifications.
    If community, mentorship and interdepartmental relationships are important to you, this organization is second to none.
    Many leaders are innovative--all expect high quality work, which makes for proud, high performing teams.

    Cons

    This is a community hospital, so funds are limited. Pay and benefits are more limited than competing hospitals. This tends to drive away the people who are not great cultural fits, however(silver lining)--those left are the ones who truly believe they can make a difference and work hard.

    Team Practice.

    Cons

    Senior management was not as tuned in with realities of work load as would be desired.
