    I have been working at Gifford Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Facilities really takes care of things.

    Cons

    Software doesn't communicate between departments and neither do staff.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at processes patients have to go through, and don't fall for the smoke and mirrors answers to your questions. Compliance bullies direct reports and staff into silence and being uncooperative.

    Pros

    Gifford is an awesome place for someone to start out a career in healthcare. There are many leaders there willing to be mentors!

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity for advancement!
    Not a competitive salary market - underpaid!!

    Advice to Management

    Grow new leaders from within - offering ways to expand roles to keep them interested. Boost salaries to keep good employees versus spending a fortune on recruitment and training!

    Pros

    Gifford has developed and continues to nurture a family/community atmosphere for the betterment of the patients and their families.

    Compensation is relative to the small community but not comparable to competitors and the distance traveled by the majority of employees.

    Pros

    Honestly, the only pro about this place is the cafeteria.

    Cons

    Management has total disrespect for their employees, pay is minimal and since they're the only gig in the area, they get away with it. If you're considering working here because it's near where you live, think again. It's better to brave the Vermont winters and commute to someplace else than work here.
