    I have been working at BJC HealthCare

    Pros

    It is a large company with a lot of opportunity. There are Nursing careers all across the spectrum.

    Cons

    Being such a monstrous healthcare system you could feel lost in the crowd. Some people really like working for small companies and having one on one contact with upper management. In the 2 BJC hospitals I have worked in, the presidents have come floor to floor to have quarterly meetings with floor employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the point of care service. If you expect Excellent service, you need to provide the right staff and tools for that staff. Nurses and techs need to have a reasonable patient load to be able to care for them in a way that results in excellent care. It is hard to make your patients feel special if you have 6 of them.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at BJC is the insurance is good. They also have good training and give a good amount of vacation.

    Cons

    Work life balance is a con for working with BJC. It seems that you can never get away from e-mail.

    I have been working at BJC HealthCare

    Pros

    Many collaborating environments.
    Opportunities to learn, develop and enrich your career.
    A great feeling to know the work you do ultimately helps patients and families.

    Cons

    There are inconsistencies with how managers handle staff input. Some managers create an environment to have open discussions and decision-making and others say they are while their actions show quite a different picture. The perception is that minimal to no consequences occur for the lack of this skill set. Once enough staff leave the manager is finally dealt with; however at that point the organization has lost valuable assets in the people resources they had developed. In my opinion, this impedes a good organization from becoming a great one.

    Pros

    BJC has strong leadership with positive office culture. It has great infrastructure with opportunities for learning and advancement in career.

    Workload is heavy and at times difficult to meet deadlines. Salary is not that great but it is compensated by other benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership of my department was great and very positive on the professional and personal growth of their employees. I had a great time at BJC.
