    Pros

    -Mission Driven
    -Mostly great staff
    -Get the opportunity to help people when you work in a direct patient care environment

    Cons

    -Non-direct patient care teams can easily lose sight of mission
    - In some departments the only way to get ahead, get vacation approved, or get a good review is by sucking up to bad supervisors or by being friends with or related to a Manager or Director
    -Some departments have too many cliques

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. There is zero benefit to teams by keeping bad employees that are only there because of who they know.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are amazing. Great healthcare coverage and tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    Because I do not work in the hospital setting, I do not get pain holidays, although our office is closed on holidays. I have to use PTO to cover lost hours. Due to being conscientious of productivity I do not always get my full hours everyday. I am scheduled to work 9 hours a day and usually only work 7-8 hours a day.

    I worked at Providence Health & Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Lots of opportunity. Good pay. Great staff. The mission is why most of the staff still work there. They take great care of the patients.

    Cons

    Upper management. They move people around that should be fired. If you play the games, you get rewarded. It doesn't matter if your staff like you and you work hard. Lots of nepotism. Overworked. Lots of politics. If you are in the "in" crowd, you will be "in". The mission for employees is minimal at best. Most feel overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Run the company in a professional manner. Stop playing games with people's lives.

    I have been working at Providence Health & Services part-time

    Pros

    The company is well rounded and had many resources for its employees. I have worked several positions in this company over the years and I have never felt neglected or taken advantage of during all those years.

    Cons

    As with many companies, there are some managers who have been in a position too long and get stuck in their ways. Several times I have encountered managers who keep doing things one way because "that's the way we have always done it" and it can be hard to effect change some times.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to more change as the culture and technology shifts.
