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

Pros

Great opportunities, congenial colleagues, good life balance.

Cons

Tension in current health care environment about how clinicians should be paid - not specific to Dartmouth-Hitchcock but is a general trend for physicians. Incentive pays based on RVU's is in many ways at conflict with incentive for working efficiently and perhaps doing less.

Advice to Management

When a physician is doing both clinical work and adminstrative work they have two bosses. One for their clinical work and one for their adiministrative work (often different than their clinical boss). Annual performance reviews and incentive should be aligned with the appropriate manager/boss for the different jobs.

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

    Pros

    Large facility, some great doctors and nurses. Very "pretty" place to work. Lots of educational opportunities to be had. Jobs available in nearly every department, so plenty of choices for perspective employees.

    Cons

    Middle management does not listen to anyone other than themselves. Very dysfunctional place. They will do whatever they want regardless of impact on patient care or staff. Recruitment and retention of staff, especially nurses, is very very poor. In many departments there are "cliques" much like high school; pay particular attention to the clinic vs. hospital dynamic among employees.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to your employees! There are some great minds at work here, just hear them out.

    I have been working at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good coworkers; great technology. The physicians tend to listen to the nursing staff when it comes to the patient. Salary is good for the area. Benefits are also good for the area as well.

    Cons

    They are magnet but the senior leadership doesn't seem to hear the staff many times. They treat the organization like we are only a business at times. Raises don't happen very often even if you get a review which also hasn't been consistent. No oncall but toomany travelers so have to use earn time when called off.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to your staff and take what they have to say into consideration before making changes. Hire real staff instead of the travelers.
