    Don't let the non-profit status fool you: It's all about the money here.

    Pros

    Excellent benefit package, including pension plan; very talented clinical staff and knowledgeable operations staff. World-class performance in particular specialties.

    Cons

    Aggressive project time frames, particularly in the Epic project. Poor work-life balance, long hours, unpaid overtime (for salaried workers), and heavy emphasis on and political power in the revenue cycle organization. They take care of patients' health and in collecting the bill as fast as possible--paying attention to employees' well-being is, sadly, not really a priority. Lack of understanding in UCH of the community provider needs emergent from the merger with Poudre Valley and Memorial Health Systems. Insular mindset on the part of University of Colorado Hospital leadership as pertains to the merger. Insufficient representation of Poudre Valley and Memorial Management in the new University of Colorado Health organization (a product of the merger of UCH and the others above). Mass uncertainty about the future among the rank-in-file. High turnover in the IT organization as a result of all of the above.

    Advice to Management

    Look to your own behavior when evaluating why turnover is sky high in the Epic group. It's not just people leaving to make more money as consultants; it's because the experience you provide is poor. When people leave despite you having some of the best pay and benefits in the industry, you are likely the problem.

  2. Great hospital to work for.
