Pros

It is the only hospital in the area and therefore pays the highest salaries for nurses.
Great professional and knowledgeable staff .
Patients come to FAHC from all over VT and upper NY state.
FAHC is an academic medical center with 430 + beds and a level 1 trauma center.

Cons

There is no real clinical ladder in place for registered nurses.
The hospital was unionized (RN's and LPN's) recently due to a variety of issues...staffing levels, low salaries, overtime, etc. Morale, hopefully, has increased since I left in 2006.
Working with the residents and interns can be problematic depending on your point of view......

Advice to Management

Talk to staff and really communicate what is happening and what is projected to happen to FAHC>

    Pros

    Fletcher Allen Health Care is well known as one of Vermont's largest employers. There are a lot of growth opportunities at Fletcher Allen Health Care. The best thing about this organization is the number of different jobs available that will open up. Fletcher Allen encourages its employees to stick with a job for 6 months to a year before transferring to a different department, but during those 6 months to a year you can get some valuable experience for future jobs. This place is great especially because the healthcare industry is a safe and dependable industry to be in. Great place to work for Vermonters!

    Cons

    The parking situation at Fletcher Allen is TERRIBLE. Employees that work at the Main Hospital as well as University Health Care are forced to park in satellite lots and ride shuttles (school buses) to work.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more growth for employees within in the organization. Offer better compensation packages for tuition reimbursements.

  2. Great people, difficult economy to achieve the greatness it has potential for

    I have been working at Fletcher Allen Health Care full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Really nice and caring people for an academic medical center. Very good salary and benefits for the region.

    Cons

    Short sighted senior leaders. Because people generally want to stay in Vermont, they won't make tough decisions that may make them unpopular.

    Advice to Management

    Be more visible and get in the trenches with the people who do the work.
