    Pros

    Working with intelligent colleagues, taking care of complex patients, access to researchers

    Genuine ethics and collegial sharing of ideas rather than blocking advancement..

    Current Employee - Certified Nurse Assistant in Aurora, CO

    I have been working at University of Colorado Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My coworkers were the best. This was my first healthcare job and I couldn't have asked for anything more. Everybody was kind and willing to answer any of the questions that I had. On top of that, the staff was full of ambitious people who really left an impression on me and taught me about the kind of person that I want to be in this industry. They also had genuine concern for their patients which is something that I find very admirable. Great job and great experience.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons.

    I worked at University of Colorado Hospital as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Great place to work, lots of energy, some people are friendly. Most of the higher ups are extremely pleasant and treat you with respect!

    Cons

    Add at least 20 minutes to your commute from the parking lot shuttles. Some ageism but most of the people are very dedicated and great to work with. Some nastiness between new System employees and the old school employees. Stay out of it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value experience as much as you do degrees and youth.

    Former Employee - Oncology RN in Denver, CO

    I worked at University of Colorado Hospital full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits are fantastic and learning opportunities abound

    Cons

    Sorority-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 ManagementAdvice

    People 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.
