Health & Wellness Coach (Current Employee), Denver, COMay 9, 2015
Pros: Good benefits
Cons: 1/2 hr lunch
The call center and quality review process make effective coaching very difficult. Motivational interviewing is the main focus when the majority of participants are mental health patients who do not understand these concepts or processes.

A good place to work.
Intake Coordinator for Infectious Disease (Former Employee), Denver, COApril 3, 2015
one challenge regarding my job was there were too many managers, I was to report to too many people and they were never on the same page. Other than that, it was a great place to work with supportive Dr.s and support staff and an open diverse culture on campus. The opportunity was always there to attend Grand Rounds and classes and to continue my education.

Manager- Quit Line (Current Employee), Denver, COJuly 31, 2014
Typical day- running daily calls and managing staff issues
Learned- the call center I run currently helps people quick smoking- the calls address personal addiction and can be very intense
Management- hands off and you must be self reliant
Co-workers- really believe in the work being done hear- get frustrated that issues that are brought up are not addressed or ignored
Hardest part of job- for me just the distance from my home
Enjoyable part of the job- I really enjoy that we are helping save lives on a daily basis

Unorganized, Ineffective Management
Project Specialist (Former Employee), Denver, COJuly 24, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: ineffective management
This employer is an extremely unorganized organization that doesn't stand up for their employees. Employees are given little training and direction but are expected to create impact and change within the organization even though they are given no support by management.

Medical Assistant (Former Employee), Denver, COJune 25, 2014
Pros: diverse patient population
Cons: nothing
A typical day would include performing skin testing, taking vitals, conducting PFT's, stocking, cleaning, data entry, and EKG's.

My coworkers were like my second family.

The most enjoyable part of my job was working with a diverse patient population that included children and elderly patients.

The hardest part of the job was nothing.

Access Representative II (Former Employee), Denver, COMay 28, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: lack of advancement opportunity
Throughout my five years at this facility I did a variety of tasks in support of patient service. This included taking initial information to create patient charts, scheduling appointments, verifying insurance information and speaking with patients to accommodate their issues. My managers and coworkers were amazingly supportive of me as I progressed through the learning process of working in an entirely new career field. Every day was an adventure for me and I went to work with a positive attitude and the ambition that I could help someone who just needed to be heard. Although most of the patients were ultimately cared for, sometimes we just couldn't save them. Finding out that a patient hadn't made it was the hardest part of my job.

Too much favortisim at the top
Employed (Current Employee), Denver, CONovember 23, 2013
Pros: employment
Cons: too much work for the pay
A typical day at work includes everyone no one taking responsibility for their work. Upper management includes friends joined at the hip making for too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Co-workers are fun to be around, I wouldn't recommend trusting them though. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know the patients one on one.

Pros: some co-workers
Cons: no training, support, work life balance, advancement, commute
I would not recommend this position to anyone. In three years there has been turnover each year.

Deadlines seem to take precedence over health problems, family issues, and no regard to compassion.
