Providence is a good & big company with a solid reputation. The work environment is comfortable and safe. The pay is low

EmployeeWorked in Finance at Providence Health & Services - Oregon in Renton, WA at the time of review.

What I like

I've never been treated bad here. The people are generally nice and friendly. It is kind of a big company, so you may feel some level of impersonalization, but management overall is easy going. You get employee discounts to certain stores, like Nike, Adidas, Columbia. They offer a trimet (public transit) pass annually. They have a yearly picnic, a yearly BBQ, and a yearly Christmas meal.

What I dislike

I would hope Providence catches up to other companies, when it comes to pay. When I compare what I make to others with the same type of job, it gets depressing, especially since I've worked here for so long.

Suggestions for improvement

Give employees longer lunch breaks (lunches are 30 minutes). Pay the employees more fairly. Take more holidays off (e.g., We have to work MLK Day and Veterans Day, when I know other people who has these days off). Give out more vacation/PTO time.

Company Culture

Fellow coworkers are friendly and respectful

The company sends out weekly reports, monthly newsletters, emails, and company updates
