    I have been working at Providence Health & Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Providence is a known and respected health care organization. They offer competative wages and benefits. I was gifted a scholorship to obtain my BSN for nearly no cost to me. What expenses I did have, I had tuition assistance to help with.

    Cons

    The Providence I work for has a Union. Where I am pro union, it does leave a wall between management and staff

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your staff and they will take care of you

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

    Pros

    -team camaraderie was excellent
    -transparency in all areas of the Talent Acquisition department
    -goals are customized for each Recruiter, with req. load, types of positions, etc.
    -flexibility to work a schedule that fits you best, ability to work from home at least once per week
    -beautiful campus with excellent gym, cafeteria and facilities
    -compensation very good
    -excellent benefits package (health coverage, PTO)

    Cons

    -the TA team is huge (over 80 Recruiters on Renton campus alone). Not a lot of room for growth
    -the company bit off more than they could chew when they hired over 70 additional TA professionals in Q2 2016. Laid off many people in Q4 2016.
    -Merger with St. Joseph provided many challenges
