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

    Pros

    Very satisfying to take care of some of the most vulnerable patient populations in the state. Decent wage and good night/ weekend differentials. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Patient population is often abusive. Can be difficult taking care of people who who do not want to be there and don't like you simply because you work there.

    I worked at Denver Health and Hospital Authority full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits. 50% match that vests immediately.

    Cons

    Management in my particular department was horrendous. Total micro manager who wouldn't let you breathe without getting an e-mail five minutes later telling you exactly how to do your job and why you suck at it. I worked at the IT Help Desk, and half the team was Tier 1 half Tier 2 with two supervisors and one manager. Which means that there were about ten people actually working and ten people micromanaging the workers. As an Tier 1, you would be expected to handle about 40 to 60 calls per day. Time away from the phone was extremely limited. Overall, I felt like I was walking into prison every day for eight hours.

    Also, expect to receive the worst possible schedule if you are new. I was working two day shifts, one graveyard on Saturday night and two 2-10 shifts. Which basically precludes the possibility of having a social life.

    Advice to Management

    Flatten your structure! Have one manager, and one supervisor, and trust employees to do their work. You will get a better result if your employeer feel a sense of independence and ownership rather than feeling like they are in kindergarden.

    I worked at Denver Health and Hospital Authority full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The clients. Majority of staff. The hours. Really nothing else.

    Cons

    Promotions are based on who you know not your skills. Example brand new nurse with less than 6 months experience was chosen over a nurse with 10 + years of experience for a leadership role. Management lies.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. Stop lying to clients and staff.
