    I have been working at Virginia Mason full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is competitive. Average benefits

    Cons

    Lean to the extreme at times. Leadership interested in metrics and bottom line and squeezing their employees to the point of burn out

    Advice to Management

    Respect for people is a joke in my location. Clinic manager talks down to people. Does not really listen.

    I worked at Virginia Mason full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    good pay rates for experienced medical assistants

    Cons

    very expensive insurance for family's, promises education help expenses but doesn't follow through with you in helping, over works the MA's, threatens getting fired for being sick (despite excused absenses... unless you have approved FMLA paperwork on file), no sympathy from management for things that happen in personal life, horrible doctors that disrespect their MA's and management does nothing about it

    Advice to Management

    Treat your MA's with more respect.... we do the most work.

    Pros

    Used to be a team that supported employees and provided the upmost in patient care.

    Cons

    Managers are less than qualified to their job, they lie about providing training, HR doesn't care about the employees at all. Don't dare say anything to the HR department you will not have your job almost immediately after contacting them. They boast as a teaching hospital, which is a direct lie. They do not help their employees and do not care about hostile work environments. They do not care if your a new employee, if you don't "fit in" but are good at your job it doesn't matter. Seattle is going down hill fast and VM is one of the organizations causing it to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Learn your job, learn how to manage, take care of your people vice treating them like they have the plague.
