    Pros

    Still a lot of good people working at MCR and PVH but if they have left yet or been cut by SMG then they are part of the 7% employee satisfaction remaining. The remain workers still view us as seprate from UCH and put patient care first . Benifits are ok but slowly getting worse.

    Cons

    UCH merger, Rulon is gone, SMG more concerned about the bottom line then patients or staff. Worried about Obamacare and Banner building in Fort Collins and trying to save a ran to the ground Memorial hospital they are cutting staff, hours , etc to the point many great managers have been forced out or just left out of frustration. They say we're an award winning hospital in many areas then match pay and staffing ratios to hospitals that don't compare. They spend money moving offices all across town back and forth yet tell the rest of the employees to cut cost and decrease staff. Nurse moral is at an all time low with shifting hours, being sent home only to be called back. The new health insurance and dental is half of what it used to be. There are now deductables in the health insurance and the dental doesn't come close to covering what it used to. All the changes in trying to match UCH and it's policies and such noone is able to keep up. SMG has gone to outsourcing many departments to the point many wonder if there will be a job tomorrow. We haven't seen many cuts at SMG level though. They have managers trying to cover all three city's at once leaving one rarely seeing an actual manager unless it is for a pointless meeting only to notify us of more changes or cuts. It will be interesting to see this year's employee satisfaction survey.

    Advice to Management

    The current CEO has his plate full in trying to right all the things that have gone wrong. He is a good man and hopefully can do the right thing to bring us all on track or like the employee sasticfaction survey asked many times .... Would you leave your job for a similar job with equal or a little higher pay? Yes ! I think everyone here and many that don't want to speak up are fed up with all the changes, lies, and big corporate feel when all everyone wants is to be the outstanding community hospital we once were. Look at all the reviews and you can tell when it started going down hill. Many , many employees feel the same .

    Pros

    None. It used to be a good place to work but not anymore, so many changes and it has lost the character it had.

    Cons

    Too many managers, directors and executives. Too much favoritism. Nobody cares about the staff, they are just worker bees and disposable. Too busy making a profit to care. Not a community hospital anymore. No opportunities to get ahead, too much secrecy in the hiring process. Jobs get posted and then disappear.

    Advice to Management

    You need to be fired. Not doing a good job of managing all the changes. You let jerk managers stay and they bully people. They run things the way they want with no regard for employment law, hire their favorites, and it's just a clique, eventually you will have a big lawsuit for running the wrong person out the door. Definitely appears to be some age discrimination where they wiped out some departments, like the IV Team.
