    Pros

    Management tries to be transparent with employees. Relaxed dress code everyday in some buildings. Customized work schedule/location for some departments.

    Cons

    The salaries are lower than similar jobs in other industries and the benefits are not much better than other companies'.

    Pros

    flexible timings and great managers

    Cons

    IT managers are great but HR has very stringent old fashioned policies thereby preventing suitable resources to be hired for the teams in need.

    Pros

    Benefits package is great, my schedule is flexible, networking is great, large company, diverse population, lots of healthcare research being done at Wash U/BJH

    Cons

    Management (they have no idea how to do anything but chase QI numbers that some businessperson sets with no input from actual healthcare workers), staffing, employee turnover, pay is just ok

    Advice to Management

    Hire candidates for management who have both a degree and experience in the field they will be managing.

    Pros

    Good benefits, pay is decent, fairly laid back environment.

    Cons

    Not enough appreciation for employees. If you're good at your job, they will expect more from you than any other peers, yet come raise time - everyone gets the same amount.

    All co-workers and various levels of management are helpful and genuinely invested in helping you be successful. Hard work is expected, but manageable. BJC Healthcare has been a very positive work experience.

    Limited office space due to rapid growth

    Always make time for weekly 1-on-1's with employees

    Pros

    Flexible and fun. Coworkers are pleasant and smart. Matrix environment can be challenging at first, but really improves work environment, overall.

    Cons

    A big company, it can seem impersonal and broad. Processes can be slow moving and decisions can take enormous patience to achieve. Many chiefs.

    Advice to Management

    Limit need to constantly reassess, make a decision and follow through, despite late objectioners.

    Pros

    Still looking for the best reason. Most companies these days have no honesty and integrity. At least we have a job for now.

    Cons

    Lack of communication on what's happening until after the fact. No direction on what is going to happen so you can plan your life.

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest with employees and communicate better. Don't make promises you do not intend to honor or have no intentions to keep.

    Pros

    Excellent health insurance. Directors that are in position are good and knowledgable at what they do, especially on the non-patient care side (finance, revenue cycle management)

    Cons

    There are some managers and supervisors in place that continuously bring the company down whether it be through bad hiring decisions, gossiping about their employees to other employees, or not understanding how their employees do their day to day to functions which would seem pretty important since it's their job to manage and lead them through it. I don't think I've ever worked for a group of people as unprofessional as I do right now.
