PBX Operator (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, WAAugust 25, 2017
Answered busy calls for the hospital and the surrounding clinics at lunch and after they closed. I learned how to respond to "code' calls which were extremely urgent and trained all of the new employees. The workplace was small and cramped. The hard part was the lack of management but I enjoyed the job and found it to be very rewarding.
Pros
Discount on cafeteria food, small bonus at Thanksgiving
Cons
Lack of management

Admitting and Financial Counselor Representative (Former Employee) –  admittingAugust 24, 2017
it was years ago and I hope it has gotten better since I left there. To many people were getting away with things that were not professional. Management was really bad back then and they were finally getting rid of some of them. But I left while it was still pretty bad.
Pros
co workers were pretty cool and patients were great
Cons
management was terrible

Twilight Zone
sales (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, WA 98004July 21, 2017
Unsafe.
Decisions made based on financials rather than patient care.
No one knows who's running this hospital.
They don't pay appropriately for any position so no one stays longer than they have to.
Pros
Great Location
Cons
unsafe patient care

Great hospital with so much potential. The management and executives take on too much work with little delegating. It would be nice to see staff promoted and trained from within.

Clinical Nurse Research Coordinator II (Current Employee) –  Bellevue, WAApril 21, 2017
Some systematic issues associated with separate entities joining Overlake. Most physicians not employed by Overlake. Some disjointed management leading to frequent staff turnover. Clean facility with great work/life balance. Holidays come out of accrued PTO.
