Stressful and no one knows what they are doing.
Buyer (Current Employee) –  SSCJuly 10, 2017
Turn over is high throughout all levels. Co-workers are nice to your face, but could turn at anytime. Everyday is a question of "will I have a job tomorrow". Our director was passed over for VP and seemed a bit bitter about it. They don't promote within unless your in good with the person hiring. The current manager was hired by the then manager and is a personal friend of hers. It is felt that there was nepotism involved and a lot of good people were passed up, but of course a puppet will get the job. It is sad that the mission statement is a joke and employees are treated like children. It has the ability to be a great company, if the mission statement actually meant something to the executives.
Pros
Vacation accural is good but
Cons
Time off is begged for

Great colleagues, but the pay is too low
HR (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, WAJune 27, 2017
This is a great healthsystem, but the pay is too low across the board. Advancement can be difficult when positions are groomed for certain individuals.
Pros
great culture, community involvement and mission driven
Cons
low pay, benefits could be better, listening to the employee's and not the management

Dysfunctional, chaotic place to work. Employees are not valued.
Patient Access Representative (Former Employee) –  Springfield, ORJune 20, 2017
There is a serious disconnect between in ALL levels Peacehealth Administration (clinic managers all the way to the CEO) and the caregivers who actually do all the work. Employee integrity, compassion and good work ethic are not recognized or respected by the Peacehealth organization. Making a profit for this "non- profit" organization is priority, not patients of employees. Unrealistic workloads!
Pros
Good pay, PTO accrual
Cons
Bad management

Great benefits
Specialist (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, WAJune 11, 2017
Sometimes I only stay for the benefits. It's not a horrible place to work, I just got stuck under the worst manager in Peacehealth. Everyone is kind and caring and I would recommend Peacehealth to anyone looking for a job.
Pros
Awesome benefits and employee assistance.
Cons
Management is not in a good spot right now

Productive workplace
Mentorship Student (Current Employee) –  Longview, WAJune 9, 2017
I thought the hardest part of the job was keeping up with my school schedule and work schedule at the same time. There were grade requirements that I had to make in order to keep my job but it seemed like missing work to keep up with school was not acceptable, and in a position where they say that you are allowed to do that, it shouldn't be frowned upon.

good people, system in tumult
Administrator (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, WAMay 2, 2017
Great people to work with. However, the healthcare industry is in flux, and PH is caught in the tumult. Numerous successive reorganizations in recent years means mgmt is rudderless, trying to figure out what to do, making decisions, and then after change is underway, directions are changed. Over and over.
Pros
Good people.
Cons
Sketchy management.

Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, WAMay 2, 2017
The situations vary depending on where you are, but overall, there a lot of good people doing a lot of good things at PeaceHealth. What holds them back from being great is a disconnected management team. Communication and organization are challenging to get right, and that is something they really need to understand.
Pros
People, compensation, mission
Cons
Management makes or breaks an organization

Mid-sized office specializing in healthcare
Accounts Payable Specialist (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, WAApril 7, 2017
I have been here for several years I like the mission of the company to treat everyone in a loving and compassionate way. Since this is a shared services center, all of the administrative functions have been consolidated from the various hospitals in the region so there have been many changes trying to get some consistency in the various processes and there are many growing pains but there have been vast improvements from 5 years ago when the office opened. Depending on your field there may be room for growth and advancement. You will always be busy and there are a variety of challenges depending on what department you're in.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
cubicle clusters feel isolating sometimes and can limit groups from interacting, some depts seem short-staffed because things don't always get done in a timely manner

Typical day at Peace health is good, the people who work here are great and work well together. Like anyplace Management has its ups and downs as with its employees. I love being a part of the journey to new parents.

Terrible Management
Better not say (Current Employee) –  Ketchikan, AKJanuary 23, 2017
Ketchikan - One of the most dysfunctional hospitals I have ever worked for in my 20 years in healthcare. The administration does not support a functional patient care environment. The Manager/Director is totally incompetent. Very untrustworthy. They do not have a clue how to run the departments they manage. Unrealistic work expectations as a result. They will lie to you when they recruit you and screw you once you get here. Benefits are horrible and their training is the worst I have ever seen. HORRIBLE place to work. Do your self a favor and pass. Very few employees stay after a few months to a year unless they hook you with a 2 year contact. Most will leave immediately after the contract is up. They can't even keep physicians. THIS WAS ONE OF MY GREATEST CAREER MISTAKES.
Pros
Nice area
Cons
Terrible unqualified management

Company used the bait and switch method of hiring new employees
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Eugene, ORDecember 24, 2016
Many employees complained about the amount expected for little pay and they are not treated well with the management. Management like to humiliate employees in front of other people and belittle them. Yet employees are loyal to the patients and each other, they take so much burden and work of others to compensate the lack of resources.
