Overall, a good place to work
Business Analyst (Current Employee), Seattle, WAMarch 25, 2014
If you want to get ahead here, you need to take charge and go after what you want, management doesn't give many handouts. Some nepotism and culture issues, perhaps not unlike most large companies. Would work here again.

Patient Accounts Rep II (Current Employee), Seattle, WAMarch 18, 2014
Pros: transportation subsidies
Cons: too many to name
Swedish was a good place to work in the beginning and it has gone down hill. They micro manage and do not appreciate hard working staff. To them everyone is replaceable. They took away all perks and flex time. They don't protect their employees. Their health coverage has become worse.

It's been a great place to learn new information and experience but there is no potential for growth.
Patient Service Representative (Current Employee), Issaquah, WAFebruary 18, 2014
Pros: gained medical knowledge
Cons: never enough staff and no potential time frame for career growth.
I have learned many new skills in the medical industry as well as gaining business opportunities with ordering forms and brochures and other items needed to maintain a healthy work environment. I have also learned billing and insurance techniques that are another valuable asset. I enjoy my co-workers and work well as a team player.

Company Discriminates / Fires Long Term To Pay Less
Insurance Rep II (former employee on FMLA) (Former Employee), Downtown Seattle business officeJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: wage ok
Cons: family of manager gets promoted over others, discrimination against you if you're ill on fmla
Merger with Providence has killed what was once a decent company. I worked there almost 11 years and saw it take an abrupt nose dive following this merger. Eight (or so) employees in a row at the end of 2013 who all just happened to be on FMLA were fired for vague reasons like "you're not a good fit." I suffered from an illness (partly caused by this – more... job) i was on FMLA for and was fired (after being reprimmanded) for suffering symptoms of that illness i could not always control with meds(twice) at work. In addition to this it seemed before i left that the old hands were very steadily losing their jobs and being replaced by temps or minorities.

I have to wonder if the new parent company Providence just doesn't pay as well so they're getting rid of the higher paid employees. That is how it seems.

The morale in the office was at an all time low before i left. No one on my team liked working there and rhis kind of talk was common at work, especially after meetings. The new manager told me a week before i lost my job that i was "a long way away from THAT" so i do not believe the new management is honest. As for the new supervisor they brought in...i am not the only one she reduced to tears within her first few weeks being there.

High stress...big brother is watching environment. I would never recommend working there to anyone. – less

Financial Service Rep (Current Employee), Seattle, WAJune 30, 2013
Pros: good pay with good benefits
Cons: looking to learn new skills and possibly advance to leadership role.
A typical day at work involves a significant amount of multitasking in order to complete tasks and meet goals while managing questions and concerns from co-workers, clinic representatives, and patients. I am constantly re-evaluating my processes to ensure my work is being done as efficiently and effectively as possible. Organization is key to making – more... sure nothing slips through the cracks. I love the challenge of accomplishing my goals, but I'd say the most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that I'm helping to make the medical billing processes as easy as possible for our patients. – less
