    Pros

    -Recently had a catastophic family emergency and I can't thank Parkview enough for support from HR, Employee Health, Director of the program and many other leaders and staff for support while gone. -I have had to opportunity to advance some in the 18 years i have been here and have seen a lot of good changes. -I worked for both Centura and for Parkview and my preference is Parkview, however my family had always been a Centura fans. -Have had the opportunity to discuss pay and pleasenatly surprised at the results in the change. -Great physicians but challengig schedules -I do believe Parkview wants to hear what people think -Benefits are among the best around

    Cons

    -Advancement previously held Administrative Assistant for two VP at Parkview and at Centura when changes made resulting in reorganiztion I was lucky enough to stay with Parkview however, when reapplying later for VP assistant the requirement required an Associates Degree which did not even qualify me for an interview although I had the experience. -Salaries can use some adjustment -Someimtes changes made to department without knowing the full impact on staff

    Advice to Management

    -Keep moving forward so that we become the hospital of choice words from Mike Baxter.

    Pros

    Parkview cares about their employees and patients and they try to show it everyday. Very consistent with training and the way they practice their quality of care.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be hard to get an answer with so much management each person has to answer to.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being consistent

    Pros

    Working at Parkview should be exciting as they are one of the largest employers in Pueblo CO. They do alot of advertising and marketing

    Cons

    The "cliques" rule. If you're not in the "clique" then you are ignored and talked about behind your back. This is a very uncomfortable place to work

    Pros

    Great team work amongst colleagues. Good doctors and surgeons.

    Cons

    All areas understaffed. Mismanagement of finances. Little thought into spending on equipment and ideas on ly to fall into disuse within a short period of time. Management ---workforce divide growing.

    Advice to Management

    Use money more wisely. Decrease upper/middlemanagement spending and use for patient care personnel.

    Pros

    One of the better paying jobs in Pueblo. They participate in 401k , force you to buy their health insurance if your full time and have no other insurance.

    Cons

    There is a reason why Parkview always has so many job postings...they treat their employees like crap. They let you know your just a warm body that can easily be replaced. Be sure of what your signing up for because it'll probably be more than you expected.

    Advice to Management

    Put yourself in your employees shoes. Follow through with what you say in a TIMELY manner. Practice what you preach.

    Pros

    Strong sense of teamwork with most of the nurses you work side by side with. As a team, we do what is necessary to care for our patients. Management does not micromanage staff. Contracted with Studer to improve patient care. Promotes hourly rounding. Takes surveys of staff satisfaction. Community hospital with a large number of patients compared with the competing hospital, so excused absences are rare.

    Cons

    Sometimes you do not work with a full staffing. Administration promises positive changes are coming but they never seem to materialize for the line staff. Salary is not competitive for the front range. The work is demanding and there is little dedicated help to cover lunches or breaks. You take them as they come. Patients that do use the services are mostly medicare/medicaid and charity care. This means the organization operates on a slim margin and is compelled to cut everywhere they can, sometimes to a fault. There are adversarial relationships between some physicians and these can boil over to how an area is treated by a specific physicians. Management has little to no control over medical staff treating line staff in a hostile manner. Yes, they are aware of these problems. Computer documentation/IT is average to below. Meditech is difficult to use, especially for orders.

    Advice to Management

    Happy and well-cared for nurses makes for happy and well-cared for patients. Happy nurses do not leave. Its as simple as that. The hospital should encourage medical staff to get along and not take their issues out on the nursing staff/clinical area. We are doing our very best and deserve better.

    Pros

    I enjoy the work I do and the projects that have been thrown my way to increase my knowledge and experience.

    Cons

    Culture of the office is very dysfunctional. The pay is below average for not only the accounting office but around the organization as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and take their cue, not everyone will have a complaint that is unsubstantiated. Consider promotions and pay rates, many employees will find employment elsewhere if they believe management and senior leadership don't care or stand behind the employees.

    Pros

    Health care will always provide some sort of employment.

    Cons

    Salary is low compared to other facilities that provide the same employment within the same town. Management (Director's,Lead Clinical Educators,etc.) are a "clique".

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employee's, speak with the workers on the "front line" and listen to what they say, don't just hear what you want to hear.

    Pros

    - For the most part direct supervisors are caring individuals who want to do the very best for their employees. - Employees and co-workers are really hardworking and give a lot to the organization. - Tries to offer employees a variety of perks and benefits: fitness center, appreciation meals, etc. - Employee longevity in certain positions- hired and tend to stay until retired.

    Cons

    - Opportunities for advancement exist for those who are overly vocal to senior leadership about what they do and tout their own accomplishments, not necessarily hard-working, competent individuals with a true dedication to the organization. - Over the top, high dollar, corporate "consulting" strategies that only further deplete the employee moral and put a strain on front line staff. - Pay is definitely well below any quotes on glass door/labor department. - Higer education not valued when applying for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    This place is a home-grown, grass-roots organization which is great, but sometimes lacks the organized standardization in processes, policies, and procedures used by bigger healthcare organizations (particularly up North). Many talented individuals will leave Parkview for organizations that have more opportunity for advancement.
