This company is very supportive of its employees. The only negative is the obsessive focus on LEAN projects.

EmployeeWorked in Administration at Salem Health in Salem, OR at the time of review.

What I like

My department is very supportive of its employees. Our company has various health and wellness events throughout the year, as well as cultural events and food. It is a great company to work for, with great and comparable benefits.

What I dislike

As a hospital, I would think that they would be on the forefront of providing paid parental leave to their employees. But, because other comparable companies do not, neither do they.

Suggestions for improvement

LEAN projects are so forced. We are required to complete a certain number each year, and it gets overwhelming and redundant when you are just doing projects to hit the number goal.

Company Culture

My department is amazing, and always supportive of each other.

Company Image

Yes, I am proud to be a part of this company.

Work-Life Balance

PTO benefits and short term disability are comparable.

Career Development

To a point. Many of the departments require additional certifications or degrees.

Handicapped Accessibility

Mostly. It is narrow in places, but could be accommodated if needed.

Overall compensation for your work

Yes, Salem health does market adjustments when needed.

Inclusive / Diverse

To a point. I don’t think it’s intentional, but our department is not diverse at all.

Environmental Friendliness

Not really applicable. We do recycle our papers.

Workplace Safety

Yup!

Teamwork

Huddle notes twice a week give us the ability to do just this.

Attitude towards older colleagues

For sure, as far as I can tell.

Support from management

Yes, management in my department is very supportive.

Office / Work Environment

Definitely.

Challenging Work

There is a lot you have to memorize/remember in my job, but it is not difficult per say. Just takes a while to learn everything.

Internal Communication

There is a daily dose, and the president of the company will sometimes send out messages about how we are doing.

Gender Equality

Definitely.

Freedom to work independently

In a way. But they also require a certain amount of projects per year that becomes redundant.


Job Security

I love this company. My colleagues feel like family. Everyone is kind, caring, and respectful to all.

What I like

I am proud to work here and proud of the facility, that does such a tremendous job serving our community.

What I dislike

As with any company, sometimes the way decisions are made are not clear. But I feel perfectly comfortable asking why.

Suggestions for improvement

A larger employee fitness center

Company Culture

Feels like family

Environmental Friendliness

Concern/awareness yes, but it is extremely difficult to recycle from the hospital

Challenging Work

You never know what the day will bring in healthcare. Challenging but rewarding.

What I like

It is a great company to work for. We really are a community of learning and support. All of us, no matter the department, work together to make our place run smoothly. We have high reviews from our patients because of the magnificent care we provide. We not only save lives daily, but we make the experience during a bad situation as pleasant as we can make it. We are a great place to work. I would recommend to anyone.

What I like

Salem health offers tuition reimbursement, which as a full time university student is extremely helpful. They value career advancement and encourage their employees to further their education. They make sure to keep their pay scale competitive with the market, and make cost of living adjustments yearly.

What I dislike

I do not have any disapproving comments or thoughts about salem health. They are an amazing company, one that strives to take excellent care of their employees and the community that it serves. I feel extremely lucky and grateful to be a part of their family.

Suggestions for improvement

Continuing to find more ways to connect and reach out to the community, also always researching ways to reduce waste, and lessen the carbon footprint.
