    I have had a very positive experience at BJC I would definitely recommend it to my peers.

    Pct (Current Employee) Alton, IL

    ProsGood insurance, positive work envirnment. The staff are really nice and helpful. It seems that there would be lots of room for improvement to grow within this company so I'm glad that I have the opportunity to be apart of such a nice company.

    ConsThe benefits here at BJC are ok if you work full time but unfortunately I only work part time so I only qualify for certain benefits but I'm not complaining. There is only mostly 12 hours shifts which could be a downfall to some but I don't mind working just three days a week.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think they are good people they are always around to ask questions if need be they are very involved with the growth and development of the hospital.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Co-Workers

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCo-workers- wonderful caring people work here.

    ConsUnderstaffing- nurses are frequently put on call even though it leaves the others with unsafe ratios

    Advice to Senior ManagementPatient satisfaction scores would go up if the nurses were not understaffed

    Barnes-Jewish employs some of the best staff of the World.Not afraid to be proactive and strive to reach the next level

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI think the best thing BJC has going for it is its association with Washington University.

    ConsNot consistent with pain management. Nurses have to work through breaks and our often over staffed. Not good for a top hospital even though staffing really made an effort to stand out with JACHO and Magnet representatives.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPoor morale. Hear of CEO with bonuses but find staff have to work through breaks despite 12 hour mandatory shifts. ER wait needs improved. Better coordination with discharged patients to prevent readmission.
