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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Good pay. Co workers are supportive of each other’s efforts and function as part of a team

    Cons

    High management turnover. Los of changes many of which are caused by the tension between creating a centralized system contrasted with a more customized local approach.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to listen to your employees about day to day operational changes, who are motivated to see the company succeed, rather than rely upon high priced consultants who are often tone deaf in terms of understanding the local environment and processes
