    Pros

    Benefits were the only perk working with uch, there were no other pros at all. Do not apply if your looking for a long term position

    Cons

    Leadership has completely diminished and does not listen to employees only interested in keeping board of directors happy. Leadership does not believe in transformational leadership theory or conceptualize management.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees

    I worked at University of Colorado Hospital (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are many opportunities to see multiple medical situations and for a new graduate as a nurse or therapist this should be a great opportunity for you to experience things you might not and other facilities In town.

    Cons

    University of Colorado Hospital Has an outward appearance of healthcare excellence, however after being an employee for a while you start to see extremely concerning scenarios throughout the hospital. Oftentimes clinicians are overloaded with patients to an unsafe standard. Nurses can have up to four patients in the ICU without any relief staff willing to come in. Respiratory therapy often has complained about having triple the workload of any hospital in the state of Colorado. As a clinician in the ICU at university I have seen mini unsafe situations involving residents /new doctors not make good medical decisions. Management and administration have a culture of abuse and cover-up questionable instance that happen at the hospital. Just In the last 12 months there have been three staff members who had committed suicide on campus. None of these incidences made the media because the media has been paid off by the hospital. A neurosurgeon committed suicide in his car in the parking lot of the hospital and nobody spoke about it! Another employee hung himself from the balcony of the hospital and staff members that saw the incident were asked to go home and or resign from their job. The Hospital is so voracious in their ability to squash any negative reviews that this review will be taken down as soon as they find it. Lastly HR is not your friend it is there to protect the hospital and not the employee. If you feel that you have a situation that is serious enough to go to HR just simply find a new job!

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to grow a backbone and stop treating your employees like they are dirt beneath your feet!

    Pros

    Pension, matching 403, great coworkers

    Cons

    Pay, short staffing, lack of upper managements concern for staff

    Advice to Management

    Wages have not kept up with the changes in the Denver market. Value your employees not just the cheaper work force with no experience. Value your experienced staff. Listen to your employees, and provide better communication regarding pay/market analysis and hiring.
