    Pros

    The onsite fitness center is a great benefit.

    Lack of career growth, too many 'friends' not enough management

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring and promoting based on popularity. Have better career pathing for current employees. Watch the inter office affairs, negative impact to morale

    Pros

    You no longer have to wait 10 long years to start accruing more PTO.

    Cons

    CHI is now just a holding company that outsources the majority of its full-time positions. Leadership rarely mentions the patient - they are only interested in bottom line and they spend TONS of money on fluffy new websites, signage, name changes, reorganizations, restructures and laying off people. They are completely disconnected from how things actually work outside of their ivory towers. When they do lay off people - the majority of them are women and most often - those over 50. Leadership is not trusted except for by those who are drinking the Kool-Aid - until the Kool-Aid drinkers are suddenly laid off as well.
    It takes FOREVER to get anything done!

    Advice to Management

    Quit Outsourcing, get rid of Wipro and fire Kevin Lofton

    Pros

    When I started it was great. A new group was formed to bring all the MBOs together "under one roof" with a common set of goals and measures. Got the impression that all were on-board with the idea.

    Cons

    Didn't seem to take long for the opposition to start. More energy was spent trying not to achieve the stated goals than it would've taken to just do the minimum requirements. Not all were opposed to the ideas but there were enough to eventually derail the whole thing. Management priorities seemed to shift whenever the wind blew.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. The propaganda didn't match the actions taken. Got the impression they were talking out of both sides of their mouths.

    Pros

    Work team was awesome, the job itself once learned was challenging and fun.

    Cons

    Very little on boarding, and lacking proper tools do perform the job. Management does not stand behind staff!

    Advice to Management

    Remember the mission & vision

    Pros

    Nothing to share here at all

    Cons

    Hiring practices are unethical boarding illegal. The open positions are usually predetermined or promised to certain people. It is usually based on friendships instead of knowledge and experience. I realize this is the case in most companies however, most companies do a better job of hiding it. It is very apparent in the poor quality of work. There is a huge disconnect between upper and middle management. There is no work life balance. It's a sweat shop.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house at the middle management level and bring in new people from the outside that will change the attitude and the culture. This is a horrible place to be.
