    I have been working at Memorial Hospital of Colorado Springs full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Memorial Hospital has some awesome benefits, including competitive pay (which increases as needed with standard of living increase), great 403a accounts with Memorial matching up to 3% of contributions, great health insurance (free high deductible plan for the employee and their entire family), an employee gym, a discounted daycare that is run by Memorial, great paid time off, and the chance for many bonuses. I believe...

    Cons

    There has been lots of change, and sometimes people have felt insecure about it. So far, I feel like all the changes have been for the better and I do not know of anyone who has been negatively affected by them. But there still are times when it feels like we're on shaky ground.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the communication about any changes and keep the focus on rewarding the great employees.

    I have been working at Memorial Hospital of Colorado Springs full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    System affiliation. System Reputation. School.

    Cons

    Administration very retaliatory and practices preferential treatment. No work-life balance. Chief "Clinical" Officer is the worst! Lost many good Directors due to culture.

    Advice to Management

    Upon merger of health system, the first thing to be replaced should have been the executive suite. A shortsighted decision not to, led to today's lack of success.

    I worked at Memorial Hospital of Colorado Springs full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Nursing staff are fantastic, hard working professionals. Great opportunity for the new grad to receive the experience needed to be successful in their career with wonderful support from nursing education. Excellent health care benefits and self-scheduling in nursing areas which really allows you to be in control of your work week. Great team of physician leaders who are supportive of nursing staff.

    Cons

    Focus has drifted from supporting the bedside nurse with various initiatives to expecting nurses to manage care for 7-8 patients. This translates into the nurse having up to 11-12 different patients in a 12 hour shift when patients are discharged and new admissions come in. Managers are told to wear their scrubs and work a 12 hour shift in addition to their regular 10 hours already worked since nursing staff are in short...

    Advice to Management

    Nurses are tired. Encourage HRD to entice expert nurses to Memorial with an awesome package. Eliminate the culture of public shame and blame and instead focus on patient outcomes in terms of healthier ratios. Create a supportive environment that fosters moral courage and personal well being of your staff then you will see patients who truly feel cared for. Directors need to focus on retaining expert, experienced staff...

    Cons

    Turmoil the hospital has been in over the last 7 years.

    Get to know who your employees are, and take the time to actually listen to them and give kudos where they belong. Get rid of the dead wood.

    I have been working at Memorial Hospital of Colorado Springs full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    None that I can think of now. Everything has went downhill in the last 5 years. Used to be a great employer, now it's not. So no Pros at all.

    Cons

    Management turnover has been insane, and will continue to be insane, because University of Colorado--UCHealth--is poorly managed (They bought/leased Memorial). Memorial has been poorly managed for the last 5 or 6 years, but there was a lot of hope when UCHealth came in and bought us. Unfortunately, that hope was misplaced. As an organization, we have been losing money for the last 7 years. UCHealth came in and put...

    Advice to Management

    Stop forcing employees read and sign presentations that talk about how pay and bonuses are bad for moral. A bonus is NOT bad for moral. But management is trying to get people to think that. Also, hold middle management and upper management accountable. IF THE EMPLOYEE SATISFACTION SCORES REFLECT THAT THEIR EMPLOYER IS A TIER 3 BOSS, THEN FIRE THEM. (Tier 3 is bad in our employee satisfaction survey)

    I have been working at Memorial Hospital of Colorado Springs full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Best reason to work here . . I don't have any.

    Cons

    Indecisive and inexperienced leadership installed by friends, a "good ole' boy" mentality, and a human resources department that just seems to turn a blind eye makes this place nightmarish. Rash, knee-jerk decisions devalue a strong, highly committed and caring clinical staff. Many ego-driven physicians seem to hold administrative directors by the nose, pushing them to make decisions damaging to the hospital brand...

    Pros

    Some good hardworking co-workers that try to make a difference.

    Cons

    The stupidity that runs rampant in that place. Please don't have more than a double digit IQ or you wont fit in here. Common Sense or logic will never be tolerated, if u are stupid and and a "yes" person with no integrity, maybe this is a the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Scrap it and start over. Get rid of all the old timers who have no vision past their sense of entitlement and whining. Hire middle management that has some smarts and backbone.
