    Pros

    Great people at the core of the organization and a good cause

    Cons

    Large organization which did not pay attention to turn over. Our department had high turn over and the organization never looked into the cause. Seemed to be a high rate of burn out.

    Advice to Management

    Take a deep dive into reviews and talk with employees.

    I worked at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You will meet a lot of individuals who are extremely smart and wanting to do amazing things for people - patients, families, community and staff.

    Cons

    Leaders are ego driven and don't work well as a group. A ton of lip service on the kind of culture that is desired but nothing to show for it...narrative seems to not have changed over the past 10 years. Effectiveness is sacrificed for egos and the mindset of the masses vs. true leaders making decisions because it is what is needed for to be a great place to work and receive care in the future. Lacks commitment to real people issues internally. Benefits for any non-physician are awful and it is alarming when many including myself didn't get care at the hospital they worked for.

    Advice to Management

    People who work there are able to hear tough messages honestly and when they do they can help because they are smart and capable. The "big" decisions don't have to be made by the people with the big salaries. Diversity and Inclusion isn't about the comfort of homogeneity so make the tough decision and draw the line in the sand to support people who DH and surrounding community needs. Could be a great place to work and grow but ego and excuses get in the way. Too many people leave with the feeling of "what could have been" and too many people stay who just go along with the status quo. I can go on and on but I doubt comments are read and certainly no one thinks this is valid so I give it a rest.

    I have been working at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You will have plenty of hours to work.

    Cons

    You will work short staffed all the time, they will see you can do it , then they will tell you this is the new patient nurse ratio. So if someone calls out you will be even more short staffed and be told well everyone is short staffed so that's the way it is. Working hard gets you even more work.

    Advice to Management

    Eventually nurses will wake up and get a union!
