    Pros

    I really enjoy my coworkers and the fast paced setting. There is endless variety and I never have the same day twice.

    Cons

    Staffing is a perpetual struggle, I am also very disappointed with the lack of focus on helping to grow and develop employees.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, evidence based practice, support for education and growth. Good education reimbursement.

    Cons

    Huge turnover on inpatient med surg units, hard to get full day shift schedule, huge corporation with a lot of growth and difficulty keeping staffed not just with RNs but with support roles like phlebotomy, transport and housekeeping. RNs continually asked to fill in these gaps.

    Advice to Management

    Make retention a higher priority.

    I have been working at UCHealth full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Evidence based practice. Excellent continuing education. Benefits are phenomenal and reasonable. Award winning academic medical center in a number of specialties.

    Cons

    Very large organization and sometimes you feel like a number. However individual department managers try not to let that happen.

    Advice to Management

    Inpatient nurses ability to credential should also be extended to outpatient nurses.

    I have been working at UCHealth full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My peers are awesome! The benefits are great! Pay is high but not when you consider how much you have to work - 60+ hours per week.

    Cons

    No work and family balance, the organization overworks its employees, no development at any level whether its just educating employees how to perform their job better or develop them to grow into something more, management doesn't care about its employees, no opportunities for advancement unless you are a favorite - which doesn't necessarily mean that you are the best for the job, feedback falls on deaf ears - they want you to think they care by asking but then nothing ever comes from employees ideas.

    Advice to Management

    burnout leads to turnover and we have high turnover, listen to the front lines - they are the ones doing the work

    Pros

    This is a great campus for academic research and the Anschutz campus continues to grow and become a bigger name in the research community.

    Cons

    As is the case with all of academia, the salaries are pretty low and the hours can be long. The campus is not in the greatest area but they just added light rail and are adding more housing near the campus

    Advice to Management

    I would continue to build up the community both within the campus and around the campus as well. Overall they are doing a good job

    Pros

    True definition of teamwork and putting patients first at this facility. People are upbeat, smile and call you by name. We come to work for the people we work with and the patients we care for. Evident in interactions.

    Cons

    Increase in patient census can sometimes be difficult and figure the right number of staff to have.

    Advice to Management

    Keep us moving forward and the choice provider. I love this company and have been here 15 plus yeara

    Pros

    Growth, innovation, caliber of talent, leadership, BONUS, benefits to include an ACTUAL PENSION PLAN?!

    Continue to do what you're doing!
