Financial Clearance Supervisor (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 18, 2018
While my understanding is that the manager I reported to is no longer in that role, my experience was such that it left me feeling physically and mentally exhausted in a role that I really wanted to achieve greatness in. Control issues across management personnel created a very hostile work environment. Human Resources Department was not trusted as a resource for assistance.
Workplace culture was a mix of watch your back and doing the best we could for our patients. Clinically, this employer is top notch. Unfortunately the administrative areas were less than ideal; mainly due to inexperienced management/directorship.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with the person I reported to. You never knew what part of their personality would show up that day.
The most enjoyable part of my job was helping patients and mentoring my staff who were so open and ready for healthy leadership.
PROGRAM ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 4, 2018
I was given many opportunities to learn different things. Definitely helped me in advancing my healthcare experience and career as a whole. I was able to work with a variety of people in different areas and gain extensive knowledge of healthcare and oncology specifically.
All departments work towards the amazing cause of helping cancer patients and their families.
ADMINISTRATIVE COORDINATOR (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – December 13, 2017
Parking is a complete nightmare and commuting from the eastside is terrible, but the job itself is rewarding. Each person in the company has an impact on the care delivered to cancer patients and their families, which is amazing.
Medical Service Representative (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – December 8, 2017
I loved my job worked there for 8 good years. but I am no longer employed there.I was a front desk person so I loved interacting with all the patient's I never took anything personal because I knew what these patient's were going through with their sickness. I bonded with quit a few of the patient's . they were dear to my heart and when you find out they lost the battle to cancer it hurts. No one will never know what these people go through unless you have actually come in contact and see them almost every day. their lives change so fast.

Education Program Coordinator (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – October 31, 2017
Mission driven company focused on building programs and opportunities for patients. The company is still in the beginning stages, so it runs like a start-up. This gives employees a lot of opportunity for growth but well established processes are not in place yet.
Patient Service Representative (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – October 22, 2017
At first I thought it was just my group, however, I witnessed throughout the organization poor leadership and communication that rewarded team players who had passive aggressive behavior and favorites acted entitled.
Good transparent and supportive employees were overpowered by management and seniors with poor work ethic, integrity and mission of own agenda who are consumed by their egos. As a result of the underlying tension among staff there is high turnover.
Really, even if pay was fair or good, would anyone feel truly successful or motivated coming to work feeling deflated daily.
Financial Coordinator (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – October 9, 2017
SCCA is a good place to work but it could be great if it enabled employees to work modified schedules, telework. The location is extremely difficult to get to and parking is limited. If a shuttle was implemented it would make things easier.
Storeroom (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – October 1, 2017
Hard to work at a place where management doesn't trust their workers Management takes workers ideas for their own and get all the credit Upper management looks down on workers and doesn't back them in any situation
bad management; no job work/life balance; advancement is null;
Medical Assistant/Surgical Tech (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – September 28, 2017
I start out my day by getting the rooms ready and make sure all the computers are working in each rooms. Then I move into the doctors office and wipe down their rooms. My day start when the patients arrive and I will room the patient.
Inventory management (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – September 20, 2017
Work rigid. Constant collective punishment. Rigid rule structure . Upper management is built on bullying and intimidation. Despite have ample sick time, management discouraged workers from using it despite risks to patients.
Mammographer (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – September 7, 2017
I only worked here for a few months before moving south and staying on as per diem tech but I loved my job and the radiologists were wonderful. The clinic was extremely busy and exhaustion hit when the day was over. That being said, it was very rewarding to know how many people you helped. One of the rads would come back to our area everyday and ask, "what are we doing today?" Just to hear us say "SAVING LIVES!"
Program Manager (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – August 12, 2017
I have a great deal of autonomy at work where I set my work schedule and daily tasks based on the priorities of the work I need to accomplish. I work with a diverse group of highly trained and educated individuals who have their own vision of how they want things done. Through working with them I have learned how to direct and lead stakeholders to achieve a common goal despite opposing viewpoints. Management allows for ideas to flow and encourages creativity in finding ways to improve processes which are result driven. The culture is team oriented with a value placed on helping each other be successful. The hardest part of my job is managing with no authority. I am responsible for achieving the goals set for the service line, however no one directly reports to me. I need to get support and buy in through trust and ability to consistently deliver results. The most enjoyable part of my job is being successful at engaging with and encouraging stakeholders to achieve set goals. I believe the best way to promote change is to engage and collaborate with the people who are doing the work. If you encourage people to come up with solutions to problems and direct them toward resolution rather than give them the solution you will have better results that are sustainable.
