    I worked at The University of Vermont Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you into outdoor winter activities vermont maybe for you. Friendly staff.

    Cons

    In my job field they took away further advancement. One of the reasons I quit I cpuslnt go any further up the ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a better advancement structure. Evaluation system is a joke. That system really doesn't work like it is supposed to. Self evals don't tell the managers what the employee is doing. Eclipse reporting is a way for software micromanagement but doesn't show the real truth in daily workload.

    Pros

    Good Health benefits. Decent starting time off.

    Cons

    Like all other companies they mostly care about the bottom line and not for the well being of their lower rung employees (non-medical staff). No room for growth with ridiculously low wages. Even after you have been here for 25+ years don't expect a wage over $17 an hour.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying the nickel and dime the background employees who keep the organization running day to day. Happier employees mean a better hospital.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    They are an equal opportunity employer which makes for a diverse work environment. There is room to grow and change job positions that fit your needs.

    Cons

    There is a feeling of hierarchy, not everyone is made to feel they are on the same playing field. There is constantly construction which increases the noise, creates working spaces that aren't ideal and at time inconveniences customers.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to what employees are telling you. They are the ones who are in the trenches, without good and happy employees you don't get as many dedicated employees who want to do a good job.

    Pros

    Benefits are great, employee engagement is a high priority. Resources are provided to make changes and keep up with industry. VERY patient focused.

    Long term management team in my department that did not welcome outsiders. Little support from EAP or HR to acclimate to culture.

    Shake up teams managed by groups who have been together for 20 years.
