    I have been working at PeaceHealth full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People. You can't beat the quality of people. The pay is fair. Benefits are outstanding. (PTO) Nice location. Springfield Hospital is beautiful. Depending on the department you are with, the advancement possibilities are good. Also, depending on the department you would work in, I would recommend this as a great place.

    Cons

    Communication from upper leadership (Vancouver WA) We do not know in advance plans that effect families. (Out sourcing, lay offs) Upper leadership fails to value front line employees. Cheap talk. Little action.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that your employees are grown ups. Communicate both the bad and good, let people be prepared for major interruptions in their lives. Allow people to prepare families, to update resumes and such. Be honest. Treat all, as you want to be treated. We have a huge disconnect between Vancouver and the hospitals/clinics that serve the people. You are disconnected. Make it a point to spend time, monthly if possible, traveling to the sites, talking with, and hearing the people that work for you.

    Cons

    Leadership is clueless, completely destroyed the good strong community ties Southwest Washington Medical Center established, C suite more worried about their bonuses and pay rather than front line employees, and they have no loyalty to those who work hard and go above an beyond

    Advice to Management

    Get leadership that is committed to patient care, community, and staff. Be honest and forthcoming with your staff, listen to your staff as they tell you their struggles and help them. Get out from behind the desk and understand the impacts of your terrible decision making. Stop preaching a culture you don't reinforce

    Pros

    I like the mission and values of peacehealth. I like that it is a Non profit. I like that it is also Christien based.

    Cons

    They are outsourcing a lot of departments which is horrible. Many people are losing there job or are being asked to apply with the new company that they outs outsourced to for way less pay. I do not want to do the same job for less pay. Even though I have been there 10 years they are hiring everyone at entry levels.

    Advice to Management

    Prepare your staff and help guide them if your department is outsourced.

    Pros

    It is close to my house and I dont have to fight Portland traffic

    Cons

    *New management every 6-12month, each saying they care and are in it for the “long haul” and then quit or get fired
    *Salary range lower than our market area.
    *Shady pay practices where the electronic time clock is somehow always wrong

    Advice to Management

    Find some stability and stick with it. Stop running it like a for profit hospital where the bottom line is the only thing that matters.
