Providence Health Review
The people here are kind/friendly. It's a non-profit co., so you feel like you're doing some good, but the pay sucks.
What I like
They gave me a chance when nobody else would hire me. They were flexible with my schedule, allowing me to work part time while attending university. They have a yearly picnic, BBQ and Christmas meal.
What I dislike
I feel like I'm severely underpaid. It's a bit ridiculous that I've worked here for so many years, yet my friends/family who do similar jobs (at different companies) all make more money than me when they've worked there for fewer years. I understand it's a non-profit organization, but the low wage is probably why turnover is so high (at least in my department)
Suggestions for improvement
The culture and environment is great. The only improvement I want is higher wages.
People are very friendly here
The company regularly sends out weekly reports, monthly company updates, etc
Yes, they believe in teamwork, but also honest constructive criticism
They encourage you to maintain a healthy work life balance. They offer discounts to healthy lifestyle things, classes, etc
Support from management
There is good support and rapport from the higher ups
Freedom to work independently
You are assigned your own workqueues and work mostly off of that, with some direction from management
Inclusive / Diverse
They strive for diversity
More women than men work here. And women are often in management positions
Attitude towards older colleagues
I think they treat all employees fairly
Office / Work Environment
No complaints here, except for the fact that my computer is almost ancient
Yes, there are recycling bins at every cubicle
There are elevators and ramps
A saftey course must be taken each year. There is also a safety commitee that addresses concerns
Overall compensation for your work
Of all the people that i know outside of the company, who do jobs similar to mine, I am paid the least.
It's a non-profit organization, and they have a good reputation around town
Some people do move up, but it seems there is high turnover
There a lot to learn when you first start out, there's definitely a learning curve
