    I worked at The Joint Commission full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits were great. The company mission made me proud to work there and I felt good about the work that I was doing in the early years that I was there.

    Cons

    Management plays favorites. Management in the HR department made biased decisions based on personal opinions, often disregarding company policy, which were often changed to fit the needs of the moment. New job descriptions were created to fit favored candidates or to prevent qualified candidates from being promoted. Felt more like a high school cafeteria than a professional atmosphere. There was a lack of communication between levels of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. Management is not interested in any advice. They have their own way of doing things and that will never change.

    I worked at The Joint Commission full-time

    Pros

    Back stabbing working environment. It don't matter what you know there, It is who you know.

    Cons

    Lean Six Sigma is a joke there! IT leadership can't be trusted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop using the word "World Class" which you will never be.

    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.
