    I worked at BJC HealthCare full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I learned a lot about big business and touched a lot of technology and helped the people who save lives to a better job in the process.

    Cons

    Unfortunately a large nonprofit organization portrays to one that quality of the employees you hire and or keep employees makes little to no difference. I understand big business is very buddy buddy, its more who you know, not what you know etc. But BJC takes that mentality way to far in a lot of cases. Oh and not to mention announcing to everyone that you cannot give raises, followed by you having 170 million in capital budget that you couldn't spend on new projects... Yes I know capital is designated for xxx, but come on now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to clean house, get rid of those managers that drive all their employees nuts and make rash decisions to save their own skins. Over 5 years many people who didn't deserve to be fired or forced to find another job because they hated coming to work everyday(due to managers and their poor choices) found themselves walking out the door and not looking back. Granted for me it was over a year ago but I still would never recommend anyone work for BJC IT.

    My experience at BJC HealthCare - Center for Clinical Excellence could have been a lot more positive.

    I have been working at BJC HealthCare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Without a doubt, the levels of professional expertise in the Healthcare Informatics section of CCE were top notch. In addition, I found my colleagues there quite personable, easy to work with, unselfish about sharing their knowledge and always willing to help when asked.

    Cons

    Seemingly ever-increasing levels of mandatory bureaucracy: multiple time-management systems requiring daily, weekly and biweekly data-entry; weekly, quarterly, yearly and optional three-year goal-setting tasks; artificial sharing of daily missed goals with members of other CCE depts who for the most part probably did not have an understanding of what was being presented.

    Open work environment (no cube walls) which very often interfered with productivity due to an inability to shield yourself from others' phone conversations and desk-side discussions with other colleagues. Sound-cancelling headphones helped some employees, but that shouldn't be an almost necessary requirement to be fully productive.

    Inadequate compensation for the levels of expertise presented.

    Inadequate health-care benefits, especially for employees of a leading healthcare organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously look into some long-term methods of alleviating some of the above mentioned negative work conditions.
