    I worked at Longmont United Hospital full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice co-workers only if they're your equal. Not management, providers nor HR personnel is helpful especially within the Milestone Group. Short commute, excited to support local business and community.in which I grew up in.

    Cons

    Plan on nice managers and HR personnel that will pretend to help you for awhile, but will at some point stab you in the back. Will twist and turn words around only to benefit themselves. Truly incompetent management (ie. answers employee questions with a question thrown back at you, high turn over rates, manager won't step in and answer a phone call). Severe lack of business management and ethic skills, office managers are "grandfathered in" from billing experience... what!? No requirement from upper management to further education. Not a calm, relaxed, fun working environment, always looking over your shoulder, bickering among staff including doctors,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously look at the turn over rate especially at Milestone OB/GYN. It screams "help!" "we need a manager who knows what their doing!" There is such a lack of leadership, guidance, ownership and favoritism among certain employees. These employees brown nose management and providers, and are allowed to work at LUH even without being a "certified Medical assistant". Perhaps that's why there was that issue back in 3/14 where a patient complained about getting her blood drawn - E.L. Manager consistently avoids patient requests to speak with her whether it be a customer service issue or a billing question. Positive STI results given to wrong patient. Not a detail oriented office, young pretentious providers, doctors are in and out with patients more about quantity vs. quality. And this organization claims to be a "Planetree" Hospital.....I don't think so....far from it.

    Pros

    Personnel were polite. Good place to practice your political correctness.

    Cons

    Didn't quite know what they really wanted. Do not keep their promises. Alot of political/office backstabbing. You really need to watch everything you say or the other staff will use it against you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be sure you understand what and who you need to hire and follow up on your promises.

    Pros

    The senior management team is very transparent with mid level managers. They "get it" when it comes to what is most important. HR does a good job of keeping pay fair and in line with the industry across all jobs.

    The best part is that LUH is an independent, non-profit institution. This allows agility in leadership that allow managers the ability to change the organization for the better. Coming from a much larger company where creating change was next to impossible, I really appreciate this.

    Cons

    As an independent hospital there is limited growth opportunities. Larger hospitals or health systems might offer opportunities to grow to a higher level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fight hard to keep LUH viable as an independent institution and not acquired by a larger Health System.

    Pros

    Very friendly, employee, patient and community-focused organization. Great leadership team that provides good leadership, strategy and budget support but gives a fair amount of autonomy to managers. Great team environment.

    Cons

    Other than annual merit increases no pay for performance bonus or employee equity opportunities. Heavily regulated but no more so than other hospitals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In the age of hospital consolidation and acquisition do whatever you can to stay independent. Keep up the great work!
