    I have been working at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Definitely an opportunity to network and meet many incredibly intelligent people. If you do your homework and understand the compensation department it is easy to move up in the organization quickly.

    Cons

    While a pro is to easy move up the ladder if you know the system, it is also very easy to get stuck in a dead-end position if you are not actively attempting to move up. It is very rare for someone to get promoted in a department. The only way to move-up is to move to different departments (which is disappointing). The area is a very difficult area to live in if you're a young, single person. Many of the events hosted by the hospital are catered towards an older demographic (quilting/knitting/stamping). If you are an older person with a partner/family who doesn't tend to do anything exciting, this is the place for you. For a healthcare organization, it doesn't have the best healthcare. And the benefits are average at best. The earned time is nice for taking time off but you have to "earn" the time to get paid for a holiday.

    Advice to Management

    When someone is excelling in their position and they are told they are given a raise, it is not ok to also tell them that the only way they were able to give the raise is by giving two other non-productive people raises as well (because they worked for the organization longer and raising your salary creates "compression" - whatever that means). Reward productive, effective employees - not employees who have just been employed by the organization for a long time.

    I have been working at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.

    I worked at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center full-time

    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
