Expect to work overtime, but management does their best to be supportive
RN (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 11, 2017
Many employees, including myself, divide their time between clinics. The phones ar extremely busy, so RNs spend a great deal of time handling triage calls. When I started here seven years ago, the culture was fantastic. Everybody was team oriented, and it felt very much like a family. Since the merger with Providence and Swedish, the general mood has become much more negative. A large number of people have left - both providers and support staff - and many departments are routinely understaffed. This makes it difficult on everybody. The culture has become much more about looking out for oneself.
Compensation for RNs is good, although many MAs have left for better pay.
