    I have been working at Providence Health & Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Can't think of any. Horrible place to work. The only thing I can think of is the location as it's close to where I live.

    Cons

    Salary, incompetent leaders, recruiting department will say anything to get you to take a job, political, and bureaucratic. By far the worst organization I've ever worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Fire your senior leaders and start over! As soon as I find a better job, I am so out of this toxic environment.

    I have been working at Providence Health & Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I like working in the hospital because I got more experience and I got to know different patients. Like some one with dementia Alzheimer's elderly disabled people and many others

    Cons

    The challenge I got is the patient was agitated and I tried calm the patient so after I redirected her to some thing else amazing.

    Advice to Management

    To make sure the patients are receiving their medication on the right time and also they receive their basic needs

    I have been working at Providence Health & Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great caring people for the most part who really want to live out the mission statement.

    Cons

    HR supports the poor performers over other caregivers making it nearly impossible to create strong teams. Compensation in poor making it hard to hire the best people. Culture does not match core values. Respect and justice don't seem to apply for caregivers

    Advice to Management

    Success factors should not be associated with a merit increase. It does nothing related to merit and only seems to make the playing field more level regardless of performance or merit. Extremely biased and unfair

    I worked at Providence Health & Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This review is strictly on the business operations side. As far as the clinical side of things I cannot speak of.

    Great work life balance, Providence is a healthcare giant, so things move at very slow pace where their are very few urgent deadlines to be met. You have ample time to complete job duties. Minimal supervision if any (can be a pro or con). Must be able to self manage, self create and self implement. For for the most part employees are happy as the company does not create a high pressure work environment, but at the same time if you need something done quickly, good luck! High salaries compared to the market for the business operations jobs. Great benefits on the Medical Dental Vision side of things, the retirement plan is lacking.

    Cons

    A lot of silo'ed employees, working in their own bubble. This could be attributed to segmented department structures and locations. Minimal "team" feel. Due to the self manage atmosphere processes are not defined, you will get different answers from employees. Due to the high salaries there are a lot of tenured employees who have been their for 10+ 15+ years. They are very cautious of new employees and will complain to management if they feel their job could be threatened down the road. You will be looked down upon for trying to speed up or simplify processes by current staff, as the so called 'complicated' processes they use to protect their worth to the company. Very lax work environment (could be pro or con) which effects the overall company's bottom numbers. It is more about who you know and who you can befriend than how hard you work. Actually working too hard could work against you. Slow approval processes, which is half due to the large corporate structure and half due to the fact employees take their time to get things done.

    I worked at Providence Health & Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits and doctors you work for are great. The company used to be great but change in management makes pros a shorter list.

    Cons

    Many changes have happened, hence new management and supervisors and aren't as supportive or positive to the employees like before. If you aren't a favorite of the superiors your work means nothing. Instead of helping to improve the team and work they just point fingers and target the good employees and push them away. I used to love working for providence Axminster but a better more team oriented positive employer helped me decide to leave the company. It's a shame how many good employees have been lost and replaced with not so great ones due to favoritism and lack of acknowledgement to the good employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be kind to your employees and believe in them instead of making them feel like worthless employees! Used to love the company it's sad that it had to be left due to poor management
