    I have been working at Denver Health and Hospital Authority

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Great experience and resume builder as this is definitely a production environment.

    Cons

    In general, the Managers do the best they can to make sure employees have what they need to succeed but there is a lack of positivity and fun. As Coders that work remotely, it's understandable that creating a fun team atmosphere would be very difficult but the atmosphere is just not all that positive.

    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...

    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.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Denver Health and Hospital Authority full-time for more than a year

    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
