    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.

    I have been working at University of Colorado Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I really enjoy the people I work with and the opportunities to advance my education and career, the benefits are fairly good.

    Cons

    Over the last several years the upper management has become less and less focused on employee satisfaction and patient care. They have focused on outward appearance of success and constant re-branding. HR is absolutely terrible. After constant attempts to inquire about the state of short-staffing, open positions, and the promised market adjustment, all inquiries were ignored. Emails and phone calls were left without response. It is clear that there is almost no focus on keeping qualified and loyal employees as long as they are making money and have the appearance of success. These decisions are going to lead to a huge impact on patient care when we lose all of our experienced employees for new quick hires.

    Advice to Management

    Start to invest in your employees satisfaction and attempt to keep great talent around. Show them that you care, not by giving them mugs and t-shirts, but by listening to what they need to keep a healthy work life balance and addressing those needs. You can't successfully treat and care for patients with employees who are too exhausted or unhappy to do their best work.
