I love Harborview!

PROS:

Great place to work. Co-workers are very supportive and it feels like a family. nurse to patient ratios are one of the best in Seattle. Schedules are very flexible and the benefits are great. If you want to work with a diverse patient populations and a diverse group of co-workers, work here. It is also a teaching hospital and so the doctors are open to learning and receiving advice from the nursing staff. Great team work!

CONS:

They do pay less than some of the area hospitals but not by much. The union is helping to increase pay for nurses
