I worked at Boulder Community Health part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

There are a lot of great people working at BCH, including my director who was excellent at her job & very supportive of her staff.
Fairly decent benefits package.
Management training courses for new & experienced supervisors.
BCH prefers to hire/promote from within.

Cons

Pay & hiring freezes for most of the time I was there.
Lots of bureaucracy, e.g. mandatory requirements for ALL employees not always relevant to all positions.
Decisions of Management Council often didn't make sense.

    I have been working at Boulder Community Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love that BCH is a smaller, community oriented hospital and still offers exceptional health care. Having a smaller staff allows you to really get to know your coworkers and makes for a very friendly work environment. Also, we have the opportunity to help those in our community that may not have insurance or access to health education, as we do not turn away our patients.

    Cons

    As a non-profit organization money can be tight. There are a lot of instances where our programs have been struggling due to lack of resources. We have been on a hiring freeze recently, when a lot of our departments actually need additional staff. Equipment may be outdated or in need of repair.

    Advice to Management

    The department I work in has a director that oversees two other departments, and my manager works in a different department. It is hard to get major issues resolved when we have no one to report to. I love the dynamic of our team, but when a crisis comes up we have nothing to stand on. Perhaps micromanagement may be the way to go in some situations.
