    I have been working at Providence Health & Services part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Very busy throughout all shifts, 10 hour shifts with 30 min break. It's of opportunity to move up.

    Cons

    There seems to be a disconnect between employees and management. There is an uneven expectation of work amongst different employees in the same department that causes tension. If you go in to work and give 110% and avoid the drama, you'll like working there.

    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.
