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

Pros

BJC is willing to take a chance on qualified yet inexperienced individuals and therefore provides a good starting place to someone early in their career. It is a large company, so there are typically advancement opportunities in the form of other jobs within other areas of BJC.

Cons

The pay becomes relatively low as experienced is gained. In-position raises are rare. Merit raises are negligible and insufficient to cover inflation. Most times, the only way to increase your salary and stay with BJC is to transfer to a different job. It may be difficult for individuals without nursing or pharmacy degrees to advance their careers in a corporate position even though they are otherwise qualified and even though the position is not directly clinical. (IT/IS & financial tracts may be an exception.)

    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.

    I have been working at BJC HealthCare

    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.
