nutr.cumstomer rep (Former Employee), Longmont, COApril 19, 2014
Cons: management
Good place to work as long as you keep to yourself. When you have issues with other co workers you have to deal with the problem yourself. Management and HR seem to not care what goes on.

Wonderful place to work
ICU Nurse (Former Employee), Longmont, COMarch 21, 2014
Pros: planetee hospital that gives wonderful care to their patients
Cons: healthcare benefits
Usual staffing was with Charge out of care. Patients that were unstable neuro (such as high ICP's) , hypothermia after cardiac arrest, on IABP or CRRT were staffed as a 1:1. Team effort was strong.
Management was easy to talk to and had a open door policy.
The employees and doctors were smart, kind and generally awesome to work with.
The hardest part – more... of the job was generally a high population of patients that were detoxing.
Work balance was easily obtained thru self scheduling. In addition to this, requested days off were promptly denied or permitted.
The nurses frequently got together for social events, camping, skiing, bicycling, snow shoeing etc.
There was constant educational programs to attend and the hospital hosted many of them on site. – less

Great place to work
CERTIFIED PHARMACY TECHNICIAN PER DIEM (Current Employee), PharmacyFebruary 25, 2014
Pros: great benefits, good hours
Cons: low census at times
I have worked here for 4 years in two different departments. Everybody is friendly and helpful. Management is understanding, caring and interested in your success in your career. Work days can range from very busy to kind of slow in the Pharmacy, but there is always something that needs to be done.

Enjoyable and sometimes Hectic
Radiology Technician Aide (Former Employee), Longmont, COFebruary 12, 2014
Pros: clean environment, cheap lunches
Cons: difficult patients
A typical day at Longmont United Hospital as a Tech Aide was moving patients to and from the Radiology Department. I learned a lot about being careful with patients and how to move them from point A to point B as carefully and efficiently as possible. I often worked closely with coworkers and helped in transfering patients and positioning them for xrays, – more... cat scans, mri. I enjoyed my working relationships with my coworkers the most and enjoyed a successful move or transfer. The hardest part of the job was being around sick patients all the time. – less

Planetree
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Boulder, COFebruary 3, 2014
This was my first job in health care, a very positive experience. They really focus on the patient center care, the mind, body, and spirit. I was hired as a CNA, to work on the pediatric unit. Management worked with the resources they had to keep their staff happy, and the staff worked well together. I floated quite a bit in the hospital to different – more... floors. Floating was still enjoyable because the staff were very appreciative of me and my help. The hardest part was leaving, but I needed to pursue my nursing career. – less

Not a good place to work
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Longmont, COFebruary 28, 2013
I was hired from Arkansas and was in my job position for only 6 months when the witch hunt began. My supervisor was doing my evaluation when she discovered I was making more money than her and she chose to tell everyone in the Pharmacy what I was making. I worked with a night pharmacist that made up stories about my work ethic. I have been a tech for – more... 32+ years and have never been through anything like this. Three previous technicians have been fired before myself and two pharmacists. I was so happy to be in this wonderful state and so proud to work for a place that I was so proud to be there. Then to be done this way, it has been more than I can stand. I sold everything to move here and now I am homeless and on food stamps. More to the whole story but I hope people get the picture. – less

hospital itself is fine, laboratory is not very good
Laboratory technician (Former Employee), longmont, coloradoFebruary 13, 2013
Pros: good benefits
Cons: laboratory management very bad
I had worked as a lab tech in 2 previous jobs prior to moving to Colorado. The person in charge of the job was a nightmare. She had her personnal friends, who were treated very differently than the other employees. These lab techs who were the manager's friends, were elevated to the position of gods. They were rude to patients and made managerial decisions – more... that no lab tech should make.

I have since transferred to the Longmont Clinic and love my job. I would avoid working in the lab at LUH unless the management and interpersonnal relationships between management and employees changes. – less

Patient care truly is the focus
RN (Current Employee), Longmont, COJanuary 30, 2013
Pros: flexible scheduling, supportive administration, walk the walk
Cons: less pay than denver hospitals
This community hospital values each of their employees as long as they are focused on the patient as the center of care. They do have high standards but also give employees the support and guidance they need to accomplish that task.The educational opportunities and the nursing governance process are fantastic. Sure, now & then you may find a manager – more... who isn't the greatest, but you can find that about anywhere. As a whole, they are wonderful. You really couldn't find a better team of people to work with. It's like a second family. – less

Supervisor in the lab is not liked by most of the technologists and laboratory assistants
Laboratory Assistant II (Former Employee), Longmont, CONovember 30, 2012
Pros: nice hospital overall
Cons: i do not recommend the laboratory unless the management has changed
I found working for this laboratory to be the most punitive experience I have ever had. I had worked for 3 other hospital laboratories for a total of 10 years prior to being an employee at Longmont United. In all those years I only recall being reprimanded twice. At this hospital laboratory I was called into my supervisors office at least 5 or more – more... times in the 2+ years I worked there. Sometimes it was for a legitimate reason, but others were so petty! – less

I worked there and found out I wanted to be a nurse.
Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Longmont, COAugust 3, 2012
Pros: clean, small, good benefits
Cons: very gossipy, no administrative support for advancement
While I understand the hospital has changed dramatically since I have worked there this was a very nice place to first figure out my career and then continue with pursuing that career. At that time there was little administrative help in directing me correctly along the path I needed to take. I was curious why the hospital did not take a bigger interest – more... in helping employees who were interested in pursuing a nursing career but rather chose to hire from outside the facility. – less
