    I have been working at Swedish Covenant full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Coworkers, close to home, the staff tends to support one another, the parking lot is large and affordable, large amount of PTO starting out

    Cons

    Management, no ability for upward movement, very little value in employee satisfaction. Yearly reviews are a joke the raise is standard across the hospital and has nothing to do with an individual's merit or abilities. HR is a joke every response is go to the website they could eliminate the entire department and people prolly wouldn't notice a difference

    Advice to Management

    Remove the phrase "you are replaceable" and "you should be happy you have a job" from your vocabulary. Also don't ask current employees why former employees are leaving, ask the people that left.

    Pros

    The majority of the staff throughout the hospital, within all job categories, are friendly, knowledgeable and focused on providing excellent patient care. There is a real feeling among employees that you are working with family.

    Cons

    Almost all levels of management have become apathetic to both the needs of the patients and employee satisfaction. Raises are scarce, and workloads have become unsafe. Pay rates are much lower than other hospitals. Critical care nurses are assigned far too many patients to provide adequate care. Employees in many areas of the hospital do not receive breaks or lunches because...

    Advice to Management

    Get the toothpick out of your mouth, look and act professional, and treat your employees with respect. Maintaining a good reputation in the neighborhood as a hospital that provides excellent and compassionate patient care will make us fiscally stronger, and more profitable than "cutting off our nose to spite our face."

    I worked at Swedish Covenant part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Co-workers are great and there is a real team spirit among us. Generally a good relationship between physicians and nursing staff

    Cons

    Management has turned the place into an over the top penny pinching organization that skimps on everything yet wonders why employee satisfaction is in the dumps.

    Advice to Management

    You can only cut so much before you have start cutting your own salaries
