    RNs: There are less toxic employers

    Oncology RN (Former Employee) Denver, CO

    ProsBenefits are fantastic and learning opportunities abound

    ConsSorority-style charge nurses. Initiative and overtime is not rewarded. Most of the RNs are very green new grads or disgruntled travelers. Nasty residents and egomaniac attendings. It is always the nurse's fault here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPeople don't leave jobs, they leave managers. Get rid of nurse managers who can't retain experienced staff and blame it on everyone else. Look at retention rates.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Over worked, understaffed, unfair.

    Environmental Services Tech (Former Employee) Loveland, CO

    ProsIt's a job if you can't find anything since employees are quitting now, faster than ever.

    ConsMore work expected with a downsized staff. Promotions or job openings in the same department given to some with no application or interview, yet others are told to apply, knowing well that the department manager has no intention of giving them the position.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI have talked to Human Resources twice and no one ever returns calls. No sense complaining or even giving management advice, since I've been there, and no one seems to care. Watch as more employees leave, moral goes down even further, and your Magnet status disappears.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great benefits and good work environment

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Aurora, CO

    ProsThe best benefits I've had in my career history.
    Ability to move to different departments and move up in the hospital.
    I've rarely been asked to work overtime and never have trouble requesting time off.
    My department has many long term employees.

    ConsWith the change from individual hospital to a system, the benefits have worsened and the environment is more corporate.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overworked employees profit driven institution yields stressful work environment

    Registered Nurse (Current Employee) Aurora, CO

    ProsThe physicians treat the nurses with respect, teaching environment, new facility

    ConsFrazzled and fried are the adjectives to describe
     bedside nurses. No solutions have been addressed to solve the problems of no breaks, rare lunch, high stress environment. The attitude do more with less still prevails.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have serious problems with trust--you say you promote shared governance, but your employees are "afraid" of you. So many talented and bright people have been shown the door...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
