EmployeeWorked in Administration at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, WA at the time of review.

What I like

I appreciate the diversity of staff and patients. I love the mission of serving the underserved population. I enjoy the work life balance. I feel safe with my work conditions in the midst of a pandemic.

What I dislike

I would suggest more emotional support to employees who were participating in mandatory furloughs. Leadership to be mindful of words and language that could be hurtful - make sure all staff know how appreciated they are.

Suggestions for improvement

I think right now it has become more obvious that we all need to improve the situation of institutional racism. I want us to move forward as a society and a workplace culture where everyone feels safe, valued and privileged.

EmployeeWorked in Research/development at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, WA at the time of review.

What I like

Community and commitment of employees makes it a positive place to work.

What I dislike

The office spaces are not up to par for much of the staff--old buildings with poor insulation and often no cooling for hot summers (and cold in the winters). This is what comes with a community hospital, but it's not the most comfortable. I also can't appreciate the fact that wages of professional staff and faculty are considerably lower than industry standards

Suggestions for improvement

Better facilities and pay, choosing phones with caller IDs to provide to staff who need them. Having air conditioning
