    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. Most other employees are decent with one another. But still a larger employer.

    Cons

    Environment, seem to have money to pay for new VP's, and directors of new programs but in the same breath out source 350 jobs in 2 departments to save money, these employees will not have the same benefits as they did have as a hospital employee.

    Advice to Management

    Walk around, get out in the trenches with your staff. This not only goes to dept. directors, this goes to the VP and President.

    Highly professional and educational healthcare institution. Employees are challenged and respected. Nursing practice is the most accomplished in the state.

    DHMC's environment can be isolating for some people - though others will acclimate immediately.

    Pros

    Great position for an organized person. Lots of work with regards to payor contractual and regulatory requirements. Good fit for someone who likes to problem solve. Good opportunity to network with health plans.

    Cons

    Large amount of time involved with working to resolve billing issues. In this position you will be exposed to all of the commercial plans and experience the good and the bad from each of them.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to recognize how important this position is and provide the needed support to help get issues resolved. This is a team leader position and needs to be supported as such

    Pros

    Good pay Great co workers Sort of opera unities Clinical nurses are good Opportunity to advance sort of

    Cons

    Management is terrible. They single people out. You can't change departments for a year after hire even if you're qualified and they pic favorites. There is no fair advancement

    Advice to Management

    Instead of singling people out maybe you should look at what people actually do. Instead of negative feedback all the time try something positive once and a while.
