    I worked at Overlake Medical Center and Clinics part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I loved my time working at Overlake. Unfortunately, I had to quit because I was moving back home to continue my degree. However, I loved the company, the people, the vision. I loved it all!

    Cons

    The parking is not the best unless you are a night shift employee because you have to park in a parking garage across the street

    I have been working at Overlake Medical Center and Clinics full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits package: insurance, retirement plan, free orca pass, hire internally.

    Cons

    retirement Entry-level positions are Instructional Assistant or Para-educator. The other positions are rarely open or you need specific degrees to be qualified.

    Advice to Management

    Find better professional titles for the IA and Para positions that encompass the duties and importance of the roles more. This will raise the value of their experience for future professional advancement.

    I have been working at Overlake Medical Center and Clinics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent benefits and free parking

    Cons

    Behind in so many ways. Huge budget constraints. No one knows what they are doing and don't seem to care, especially leadership. Huge mistakes are done daily. I would never allow myself or a family member to be treated here. Nothing moves along at a decent pace. Communication and teamwork is non-existent, but they sure like to put on a show to make it look like it. Don't waste your time here, people stay because they...

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and take a look at hospitals that are making a difference. You can't be cheap in healthcare. Building a new building was not the answer - it should have been invested in strengthening your "team". Poor choices are being made.
