Pros

Fletcher Allen Health Care is well known as one of Vermont's largest employers. There are a lot of growth opportunities at Fletcher Allen Health Care. The best thing about this organization is the number of different jobs available that will open up. Fletcher Allen encourages its employees to stick with a job for 6 months to a year before transferring to a different department, but during those 6 months to a year you can get some valuable experience for future jobs. This place is great especially because the healthcare industry is a safe and dependable industry to be in. Great place to work for Vermonters!

Cons

The parking situation at Fletcher Allen is TERRIBLE. Employees that work at the Main Hospital as well as University Health Care are forced to park in satellite lots and ride shuttles (school buses) to work.

Advice to Management

Encourage more growth for employees within in the organization. Offer better compensation packages for tuition reimbursements.

    Pros

    Really nice and caring people for an academic medical center. Very good salary and benefits for the region.

    Cons

    Short sighted senior leaders. Because people generally want to stay in Vermont, they won't make tough decisions that may make them unpopular.

    Advice to Management

    Be more visible and get in the trenches with the people who do the work.

    Pros

    For a hospital of this size, Fletcher Allen is a good place to work. Patient care is and has been a priority for the past several years. Each department is different in the employees experience. Some departments have better management or leadership and employees are happier, while other departments have a completely different take on the hospitals direction. Our department has a good relationship with the department manager, supervisors and educators. Some of our staff is involved in quality improvement initiatives for patient care as well as having a say in new therapies and products used for patient care.

    Cons

    One of the big drawbacks is the union vs. management conflict. Especially during the union contract negotiations. As a open mined union member, I think both sides make the situation worse than it needs to be. Not really work related, but weather in Vermont is what most people who move here are not prepared for. Winters are long, cold and grey. If you do not like outdoor activities, especially in the winter, Vermont is not a good place to choose.

    Advice to Management

    Often times the upper management does not see or appreciate what happens at the patient care level. I feel they know we provide good patient care and want us to provide good patient care, but finances always seem take a priority. I do understand that margins are important for the financial health of the institution, but there are many ways to control costs so that patient care is always the priority.
