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

    Pros

    I loved working at providence. I was surrounded by a lot of hard working people and the residents that lived in Heritage House were enjoyable to be around as well.

    Cons

    There were some things I couldn't give an answer to because I didn't have any knowledge of it. Not being included in the morning meetings was the reason for this.

    Advice to Management

    Never stop hiring people. It's always a good thing to have a few extra people to be used as either back up or working there on site as well.

    Pros

    Working at Providence has been an awesome opportunity to help kids, the benefits are great and although sometimes emotionally draining job satisfaction is high overall.

    Cons

    The same problems that ail most early childhood centers in America exist here as well. There's precious little time to get everything done that needs to be and the requisite workplace drama.

    Advice to Management

    If you ever have the opportunity to put lead teachers on salary - do! It'd lessen some heartache during conference times.

    Pros

    Wonderful training and education services.
    Competitive compensation and benefits.
    So many growth opportunities.
    My position has a flex schedule, which was nice.

    Cons

    Because it's so big, implementation of anything new or making requests is a very slow process.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more telecommuting positions. I could have easily done my job from home, as it was mostly communication via emails and online meetings

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

    Pros

    Lots of nice people. Some are good and smart. Bright office environment. Decent amenities like coffee, team, gym.

    Cons

    There are many people who are not very good at what they do, but stick around because there is no incentive to leave; it's so comfortable & cushion. So if you are a go-getter, chances are you'll be doing a lot of the work, since many will sit around.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to make underperformers work harder, fire them if needed.
    Reward the higher performers, or they'll all leave, and only the bad ones remain.
    Take care of good employees and they'll take care of the work.

    Pros

    Focus on the mission, especially compassionate care for the poor and vulnerable.

    Cons

    Growing pains. With many affiliations, mergers and reorganizations, sometime cultural development suffers and people are casualties.

    Advice to Management

    Work on improving cultural adherence with mid and low level management. I could see the mission in top management, but it gets lost in translation lower down.
