    I have been working at Denver Health and Hospital Authority full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are some of the best and the staff I work with are some of the best. I truly love my job

    We run 6to1 at night sometimes but not that bad

    Most seem to care about staff. My manager is the best I've ever had and I've been work since I was 15

    Pros

    Pay is very good. Communication from the CEO/CNO on down is frequent. Pay for performance, RN certification pay in your working area (hello Health One?), and a large footprint so you can move around.
    Lots of educational classes if you want to learn more. Unlike Centura.
    Epic and Care Everywhere; it works pretty well unlike Meditech. Glad to see Boulder joining the Epic club.
    Nice benefits package and 401K/403b investment program. ECO Pass, sweet!

    Cons

    Certain departments have political infighting within them, as every workplace does. Know your emotional intelligence to rise above it. And when those yearly peer performance reviews come around, keep your list to make suggestions to help them improve!

    Advice to Management

    Reign in the H.R. wanton spending. From redesigning the logo, someone gave them a blank check. It's frustrating to see this. We didn't need a pretty logo to make us look good. That's been a multi-million dollar expenditure we didn't need. We need infrastructure improvements (Pav H is stuck in the 80's) and more parking.

    Pros

    Learned a lot as a nurse in a trauma center. The doctors collaborate with us nurses!

    Cons

    Nurses eat their young. Don't be a conservative or a christian because you are looked down upon especially in perioperative department. I am a nurse practitioner and they would not hire me due to being a new grad and I had worked there 7 years prior.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your front line staff, take care of conflict within workers
