    Pros

    Some fantastic health care workers, awesome patients, good pay

    Cons

    There are some horrible, abusive supervisors, some very greedy, unethical doctors, and a Human Resources Department that is totally corrupt. Watch your own back no one else will.

    Advice to Management

    Get a first hand view of the health care workers and ask them how they are treated. When they tell you they feel disrespected by the doctors and supervisors they work with, take it seriously and fix it.

    Pros

    Great health care is provided to patients, health care providers are awesome.

    Cons

    Not a place to work if you don't like politics. Need to a change in Senior management, they are detached from reality and live in a bubble. One VP has been there quite a few years but still has her main residence in MA, Totally not committed to Vermont or the lifestyle.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house, maybe you would be able to keep more middle management.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Co-workers are excellent

    Cons

    no flexibility in scheduling, poor nurse to patient ratio, management is detached from the reality of patient care

    Advice to Management

    Management should really listen to those who are working in the trenches day in and day out. Cost containment can work with the advice of the people who do the work.

    Pros

    FAHC has great benefits from insurance and retirement to tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Employees on the day shift have to park off-campus and get shuttled in to work.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers need to get involved with employee on a daily basis, but career development has started to facilitate excellent management improvement initiatives.

    Pros

    Most of the staff is friendly and supportive, depending upon which unit you work on. We have a nursing union within the hospital.

    Cons

    Don't count on getting a decent raise as a nurse- the raises don't keep up with the cost of living. There isn't much competition in the area. You can't park on site. You have to park at a satellite parking lot and ride in on an ancient yellow school bus. It can add 20-30 minutes to your commute.

    Advice to Management

    Please grab a pair of scrubs and follow a nurse on the floor once in a while. I have never seen a manager on the floor working.

    Pros

    Caring management and descent benefits.

    Cons

    There is a gap between what upper management sees as a need for clinical practice and what clinician see as a need. Not a very effective communication between levels of management and staff.

    Advice to Management

    Improve managerial viability and the ability to communicate.

    Pros

    Good culture, Benefits, convenient location, good reputation. This is the meaningless sentence that makes me reach my twenty word minimum.

    Cons

    Not enough Parking, hierarchical in nature (doctors and nurses think that you're worthless), nutrition department is remedial, not many fulfilling jobs available - most are administrative paper-pushers

    Pros

    Good nurse to patient ratios, good benefiits, 12 hr shifts (can be pro or con.)

    Cons

    You are just another number to them. Had really awful managers at the time, this is obviously variable by unit. You are always being pointed out for errors and areas to improve, rarely praised for all the hard work you do there.

    Advice to Management

    Have some understanding of how hard the day to day job is for your employees and give some recognition for it.
