    Current Employee - Instructional Designer in Saint Louis, MO

    I have been working at BJC HealthCare full-time (more than 5 years)


    I work in the corporate offices and have noted the following benefits:
    • Rarely do I have to pull extra hours or long days to meet deadlines
    • Scheduling off or around personal activities (sick kids, taking car to the shop, …) has never been a hassle
    • Managers do not micromanaging my activities
    • Salary when starting out was competitive
    • Leadership is fiscally responsible


    I work in the corporate offices and have noted the following restrictions:
    • Pay raises and bonuses are limited and small
    • Flex scheduling, telecommuting and other modern work environments are not widely supported
    • External professional development opportunities (conferences, trade group sponsorship,…) are limited
    • Software and technology updates, adoption and implementation is slow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain your focus on financial responsibility, but look for opportunities to reward employees. In this regard, my salary was competitive when I started, but is no longer. One reward for these employees would be to update policies to allow for flex scheduling and telecommuting. These benefits will support your work/life balance focus and offset the pay raise and bonus limitations.

    Very slow on follow up. It takes HR forever to make a decision. The process leaves a lot to be desired on the communication front. Poor negotiating skills. Salaries do not follow the going market rate.
