    I have been working at Fletcher Allen Health Care full-time (more than 8 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

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

    I worked at Fletcher Allen Health Care as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    People are extremely nice and the working environment is pretty laid-back

    Cons

    Co-workers care more about family and life beyond work, so the learning curve is not quite steep for a fresh graduate who takes this as a learning opportunity.

    Current Employee - Registered Nurse in Burlington, VT
    Current Employee - Registered Nurse in Burlington, VT

    I have been working at Fletcher Allen Health Care full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Improve managerial viability and the ability to communicate.
