    I worked at Northwest Hospital & Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

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

    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

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Northwest Hospital & Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very collaborative between departments. You don't have to watch your back. Senior management has a very open door policy. The physician-nursing relationship is very strong. People are listened to at all levels. Senior leadership changes show potential.

    Cons

    Always financially challenged. Wages are low and capital spending very tight. Union employee wages are much more positive than non union, only do what they have to. There is no management incentives other than do a good job.

    Pros

    I have worked for 2 departments at NW. I have had great managers who value their employees and want them to succeed. I have been able to expand my role with my manager's support.
