What employees say

Employees like

Providence really does try and care for the poor and the vulnerable and its nice to see a company that cares about the people they treat. We would not be here if it was not for the patients and that shows in the way the company tries to strive for greatness in the communities. they also offer competitive pay and great opportunities to move up in the company if you work hard.
Good team environment, good amount of training, emphasis on safety and just culture, emphasis on trauma informed care, lots of communication and debriefing (employees are always in the know), lots of education and professional development opportunities.
Providence gives the impression of really caring about their employees. Very soon after I was hired and became gravely ill, but was accommodated and the health insurance that came with my employment allowed me to seek the care I required.
Employees and managers work hand-in-hand in making sure there's an open door policy if any concerns. It's a very positive working atmosphere with the employees and staff. Would highly recommend working there to all my friends and family.
Sharing a calling to serve people in the greatest time of need brings together diverse personalities. This diversity builds creativity in finding solutions and ways to care for those in need in increasingly innovative ways.

Employees don't like

Once Providence took over a lot of new policies and protocols have been implemented. Not all work in our demographic like at HQ. Sometimes feels very corporate and more like a business than healthcare. Wish that the higher ups could listen more to the hands on clinical staff. A lot of departments are constantly short staffed but we all are able to do our jobs, therefore they don’t see the need for more staff. Over worked employees lose morale and ...
Company represents themselves as being for the people and community, but will make moves that do not ease the way of the people (customers, community, and employees) for the sake of profit. Will pretend to listen to employees and offer ways for employees to provide feedback and ideas, but the agenda seems to be predetermined. Company is all a show.
IN healthcare if you earn less than the average worker in your community this is a serious issue but to then say you can't afford to pay workers more than turn around and give senior leadership 10+ million dollar bonuses you are missing what actually makes your company run.
Support from management in regards to going back to the mission statement and core values, patient safety should come above the bottom line. Over-worked nurses make mistakes and cost the community harm. Staffing ratios were unjust for the level of acuity.
They say they understand work/life balance, but don't.If we lose an employee, instead of auto refilling that position we have to fight for that body all over again, but then they get angry that we don't get as much done and get burned out.

Suggestions for improvement

The improvement I would make is standardize the way the company provides care no matter the size of the facility. I have worked in both a large and small facility and they do not operate the same. The smaller facility claims it's because they just do things differently and can't be compared to a large city facility.
Upper management needs to be more in touch with employees. They have one goal--make money. Employees have another--provide safe care. There has to be a way to provide safe care without compromising safety
Keep all employees informed of vital changes. Ensure that core leaders are passing down all imperative information to their staff, regardless of position or level of seniority
I would make sure there is fairness across all hospitals and they would provide the same level of access to care at any facility a patient would go to.
I would take out the politics of this business I would give people a fair amount of PTO time and I would be less selfish
