    I worked at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Medicine is great, if you are sick you will get better. Awesome physician team.

    Cons

    Hiring process needs improvement. I am sure if its HR or nursing. It is very difficult. All of the departments need a structured orientation process, not just nursing.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication between leadership and the interprofessional teams.

    Pros

    You can transfer after one year.

    Cons

    Even when there is an open door policy in place you are either ignored or shunned. They need to rethink management in several departments.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers when they tell you what the problem is! They are the ones out there while many of you are stuck in an office. Listen to your people or continue to lose good workers.
