    Great learning, dedicated staff who don't deserve the "leadership" they have.

    I have been working at The Joint Commission full-time

    Pros

    The Joint Commission has cache in the healthcare industry; staff get exposure to a wide range of healthcare issues and settings.

    Cons

    Senior leadership don't "play well together", leading to cloak and dagger environment; little to no prioritization; siloed thinking (opposite direction that healthcare needs to go), "turfy"; risk-averse, not entrepreneurial.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire senior leaders that are innovative and that encourage and empower staff to do their job. Build a senior leadership team rather than hire individuals that don't work together to achieve organizational goals.

    I have been working at The Joint Commission full-time

    Pros

    High prestige level in brand name - company has a great deal of (fear driven) credibility in the healthcare arena. They are the "gold seal" standard for healthcare accreditation.
    As an employee, they have an excellent benefits package. They actually offer a pension in addition to 401K matching, which is almost unheard of anymore.

    Cons

    Organizational culture is terrible. Significant "cloak and dagger" type practices in how management handles staffing issues with shocking hires, fires and promotions that do not create a stable and happy workforce.
    There is huge favoritism for some employees and painful treatment for newbies or people who don't play the game according to unwritten tribal rules. It can be a very difficult culture for a new employee.
    The weirdest thing is they have a culture that seems to fear change, progress and success. If you have new ideas or better ways of doing things, be careful how and to whom you make these ideas known. Go-getters are labeled "difficult to work with" and praise for successful projects or work is only given to a team leader, never the individual who made it happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a good hard look at your "Board Room" mentality. (The Joint Commission has a gigantic and oppressive board room which does nothing to create a sense of working togehter.) Only certain people are invited to the table, and only if they have a name placard in place. Everyone else is held in silence in the gallery and allowed to observe, but not participate. You are missing a major opportunity to move the organization into the 21st century by only listening to those you invite to speak.

    I have been working at The Joint Commission full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good work, great benefits, no regrets about choosing this place of employment

    Cons

    This organization is slow to change. Too many people have a "vote" so change does not happen as quickly as it should.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We spend too much time asking staff what they want...and then not doing it if it conflicts with priorities. Ask staff once, make decisions, and move on.

    I have been working at The Joint Commission full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Easily identifiable name, prestigious organization
    -Good benefits
    -Decent salary and perks

    Cons

    -Blatant favoritism between leadership and staff
    -Bullying and intimidation is a way of life, despite their written "Safety Culture" list
    -No chance for upward mobility if you're not a favorite, and expect to be sabotaged if you try to advance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice for upper management because they're the fundamental problem with this organization. My advice to the president is to take a long hard look at your leadership and ask if these are the types of people that will bring in staff that's excited to carry on the mission of the org.

    I have been working at The Joint Commission full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    good work-life balance, good benefits, flexible work schedule and telecommuting, collaborative and healthy work environment. Management strives to keep employees happy and reward effort and performance, although company policies surrounding career progression and compensation seem to be constrictive and dated.

    Cons

    Not many opportunities for career progression; pay not necessarily driven by performance; slow salary progression; changes is slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better retention policies(including career opportunities and quicker salary progression) for high-performing employees and to attract talent are desperately needed.

    Pros

    Benefits, reputation within healthcare industry. Joint Commission has a long standing history and is a known leader in setting standards. New CEO has been great asset to the enterprise and has brought great ideas forth about process improvement within the organization (....about time they practice what they preach!)

    Cons

    JCR management very incompetent. Poor businesss skills. Morale is lower than ever (been there 13 years) with no signs of improving anytime soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need some fresh blood in upper management. Hopefully new CEO will recognize this very soon and bring in some more effective leaders.
