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

    Pros

    Great team members who are there to do an excellent job. Retirement is very generous, if you stay 3 years to fully vest. 20 days of PTO plus 7 paid holidays. Health insurance is really affordable.

    Cons

    Some of the politics are weird. I saw several people pushed out of their positions just because a manager didn't like them.

    I worked at Denver Health and Hospital Authority

    Pros

    You get to meet new types of people.

    Cons

    So many Management doesn’t even know their employees or care Way below industry pay No benefits for women with children. Never given a munch break Administrators literally make millions a year while nurses, MAs, even docs are financially way below average pay. Basically they take advantage of people’s desire to help the poor. CEO makes 3 million a year while we are expected to Help the homeless with just pennies
