    Pros

    Great benefits, reasonable pay, great colleagues.

    I worked at PeaceHealth full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They have a wide array of services and a nice facility.

    Cons

    Behavioral health leadership has really went downhill this past couple years. It feels like the compassion is gone and its all about business and numbers. Especially in the inpatient unit "Johnson Unit", where they have taken a HUGE step backwards in care quality since changing leadership. A lot of experienced mental health professionals have left and went to other agencies because of this. If you want to work there, I would suggest holding out and looking for a company with more of a an atmosphere of service.

    Advice to Management

    You should be more transparent and honest with staff. You should also hire behavioral health director that knows what they are doing. Finally, for being a hospital your health insurance plan is terrible. This is definitely not what the sisters created.

    Pros

    variety of work to do

    Cons

    over-extends their doctors, treats employees poorly, over-regulation and micromanagement, pulled in too many directions for duties

    Advice to Management

    listen to constructive criticism and advice from physicians. Realize how much of your system creates burnout and job dissatisfaction

    I worked at PeaceHealth full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Good analysts and immediate IT supervisors.

    Cons

    Poor senior management. Outmatched operational directors and managers. Mass exodus of top notch talent and inability to recruit and retain high integrity people. No support from within IT management, you are subject to the whims and insecurities of operations. Those people live in fear for their jobs and pass that same fear and insecurity down the chain. This company will probably fail on its own and be acquired by bigger, more professional company with better integrity.

    Advice to Management

    Move away from a customer-service model and back to a collaborative model where IT and operations work together. Fire incompetent operational managers and directors and recruit/retain high level talent.

    Pros

    After putting in several years the Paid Time Off is not bad. The 403b match is pretty good, 3% and they do allow you to hold more pretax up to 10%. PeaceHealth does hire good people so your coworkers are likely to be good to work with. Overall it's is a good place to work.

    Cons

    Due to rising costs to provide healthcare, they have to look at ways to save money such as cut staff, not fill positions, and cut employee benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully a lesson was learned by merging with a hospital that wasn't profitable, hasn't been profitable and likely won't be profitable.

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

    Pros

    Pay is very competitive in the local market, great teamwork in my department and other departments, focus is on patient care, management listens to caregivers

    Cons

    There is a lot of change happening right now as Peacehealth continues to transition from a holding company to an operating company, this should have happened at least 15 years ago, so there is lots of catch up going on. Operations needs to become more efficient and modern and caregivers need to adjust and not stay stuck in the 80's.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more

    I worked at PeaceHealth full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fast hiring process. (Friends have told me that they even contact you if you don't get the job! How many employers do that?) Great benefits. Good compensation for local market.

    Cons

    If you're incompetent but know the right people, you have a job for life. If an entrenched person doesn't like you, you're done. Not the best environment for workers trying to maintain accurate and safe patient information.

    Advice to Management

    Quit being so frightened of departmental queen-bee types! You've lost good people because one person had a vendetta, and PeaceHealth seems to attract employees, women especially, who like to go down that road.

    Pros

    The organization might survive the transition in population health, though not likely. Cannot consolidate talent. Ineffective leadership

    Cons

    Management is in free fall. Hopefully will merge before they destroy communities involved.

    Advice to Management

    Merge before you cut more jobs. EMR transition was horrible.
