    Pros

    If you find the right leader, you can grow and learn. You will work hard but it's all about your leader and team.

    Cons

    Used to be a place where people were concerned about the issue, not just how it looks. Some leaders are great and some do not have the core values you'd expect in this organization.. Also, resources are distributed based upon the past, not upon the need

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that an organization is only as good as the people within it.

    Pros

    Meaningful work with the opportunity to improve healthcare. The company provides good work-life balance through flex time and alternative work environment. The people are great--motivated, intelligent and cooperative.

    Cons

    Given the instability in the industry, having a clear strategy and plans to achieve it would be helpful. Presently, there are too many objectives with unclear priorities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe this company would benefit by providing more opportunties for sharing of ideas.

    I have been working at BJC HealthCare full-time

    Pros

    Tremendously supportive, progressive and professional.

    Cons

    In some instances, significantly behind the competition in terms of technology which can be challenging. Additionally, decision-making can often be swayed too heavily by political manipulation although that's often a reality of the healthcare industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push harder on collaborative relationships now as opposed to continually giving in to maintain peaceful relations. I fear we may be setting a precedent that may have the potential to cause significant harm in the future.
