    Pros

    Work with good people. Save lives.

    Cons

    Management leaves you stranded to deal with scheduling and covering sick calls. Skeleton crew 24/7 that can make busy nights really stressful. Not a good work/life balance. Pay is horrible considering you are responsible for peoples lives. You are at the bottom of the food chain and get thrown under the bus very quickly if somebody above you makes an error.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be willing to step up to the plate and work shifts to help out. They also should be willing to work on-call weekend shifts, which is expected of all other staff, but not them. This would create happier morale amongst your troops.

    Pros

    UC Health isn't afraid to spend money on patient services like high tech equipment and fancy buildings and high end décor. If you want the latest and greatest technologies this is the place.

    Cons

    Completely left customer service as a thing of the past. Great customer service in health care allows a person TIME to process and heal. But it's all about money now. Under previous CEO Rulon Stacey the PVH system was a coveted place to work with very high employee satisfaction and a stellar reputation that health care providers were top notch experienced care givers. Now it's scared mangagers, new grads (because they are cheap and hungry and in debt), and employees that can't leave. After the UC take over PVH lost it's soul. Such a shame. Patients get the shaft in the end.

    Advice to Management

    Experienced health care providers are worth the extra money in salaries. People (patients) aren't widgets and can't be processed like a factory. The prior model of patient and family centered care is what made PVH great. The new model will most certainly doom the whole hospital to eventual take over by another bigger corporation. Remember the burning platform???

    Pros

    not too many pros, mostly just another hospital. They don't pay much attention to workers as people. Mostly feel overworked and expendable.

    Cons

    no communication from top down, they change things all the time and speak business jargon, management keeps getting more busywork and less time to see what's happening in their areas.

    Advice to Management

    if you've been here since before the takeover by University, get out. We need new blood, especially in the top ranks. You don't know what you're doing and are too scared to change.

    Pros

    Teaching hospital, lots of research, lots of variety in patients with high acuity, many learning opportunities. Pay is competitive.

    Cons

    Management taking away weekend and night bonuses, understaffing.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on retention rather than recruiting.
