    I have been working at Aspen Valley Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Employees are very friendly and helpful especially for someone like me who is new in town. After just 1-2 weeks I got to know all of my co-workers very well. They seem very happy to work here. I really like that I get to work in a brand new E.R, it's nice having state of the art equipment... I am not used to having that. All in all I am really glad I accepted the job and came to work here, it's a great bunch of people.

    Cons

    Housing within the City of Aspen is tough to find but it can be done, it just takes a lot of searching and realizing that if you are relocating here you may need to downsize your living quarters if you want to live in the city of Aspen.

    Advice to Management

    None just yet. I'm still relatively new.

    I have been working at Aspen Valley Hospital

    Pros

    My director (and almost all others) really value a strong work / life balance. Also, administration tries very hard to make sure that employees always feel valued. I was really surprised to see in previous reviews someone venting about pink slips being handed out. I am a flex nurse and I work in 4 different departments so I have strong knowledge of the entire nursing staff throughout the whole hospital. To my knowledge,...

    Cons

    Jobs rarely seem to open up unless the hospital is expanding practices or people retire

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote from within.

    I have been working at Aspen Valley Hospital full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Great cafeteria, discounts on ski passes, extensive employee wellness program, OK bennies.

    Cons

    It really helps if you are a beautiful young person, skill set and experience not so important. Horrible lack of diversity. Management and HR will throw you away like a piece of trash when they are done with you, so don't make any life-altering commitments to work here. Someone else commented about mass lay-offs of older people. It's all true. Also, most of the reviews here about AVH are done by HR staff. It is their...

    Advice to Management

    The hospital's core values and standards for professional behaviour detailed in the employee handbook should apply to management. The corporate condescension toward service staff and seasonal workers by the board and management is disgraceful. Paraphrasing: The metric of organizational leadership is judged by how the lowest paid and oldest employees are treated. These are people. Don't treat them like dogs.

    I have been working at Aspen Valley Hospital full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Out of the 16 businesses I have worked with/for during the past 31 years, AVH ranks in my Top 3 due to providing work that matters, generous benefits to employees & their families, support in maintaining healthy life/work balances, and numerous career development opportunities.

    Cons

    Commuting up valley can be tiresome, but even then, AVH offers deeply discounted RFTA bus passes and stipends to employees who carpool.

    Advice to Management

    The morale of an organization is not built from the bottom up; it filters from the top down.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Aspen Valley Hospital full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    The patients and co-workers at AVH are top-notch. Up until recently, I would say working for a small locally oriented non-profit hospital and making a difference in the community was the biggest perk, but not so much anymore.

    Cons

    If you are considering a position at Aspen Valley Hospital, keep in mind that the organization is in flux and any new-hires are basically considered temp workers. If you have any other potential leads or options, I'd seriously recommend looking elsewhere. There is a culture of deceit at AVH and the Executive Team has proven to be pathologically incapable of being honest or compassionate with their staff. There...

      Pros

      There is something great about working with like minded care giving professionals. AVH is full of people who truly are interested in giving excellent care to this community. This hospital is full of healthy people too. That is an increduble bonus. The lifestyle in Aspen is embodied by the staff and employee wellness program here. A caring staff that live the healthy life are truly able to be examples to the community...

      Cons

      I personally had a lot of catching up to do. I came from the Food and Beverage world in to the marketing world of health care, so I had to learn a new base line of vocabulary, purpose and intention. AVH has been ghreat about bringing me into an environment of excellent care giving.

      Advice to Management

      Lets make a big change. Lates not be afraid to make bold changes in this crazy changing world of health care. Lets tryly make Aspen a leader in the world of better living!
