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

Pros

Flexible work environment where (if you have such a job) you can work from home some days during the week. The company accommodates schedules well.

Cons

The company is mired in red tape on the Information Services side of business and to get even the simplest of tasks completed seem almost insurmountable. Middle management, for the most part, is ineffective and a cause for the low moral. The philosophy at this organization is that management personnel does NOT necessarily need to know anything about I.T. in order to "lead" the various groups within Information Services. I, along with others, find this vexing.

    I worked at BJC HealthCare full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good experience to have. Wide variety of technologies to learn and support.

    Cons

    Other than having a job period, there is little stability. You can apply, interview for, and accept a position to work at a specific location/hospital out west... and then end up being moved to a traveling position near Illinois within months after starting. They will not consult you nor give you notice of your job changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employment is voluntary. Do not expect to keep good techs when their job duties and locations that were originally interviewed for are changed on a whim without notice or discussion with the employee. This is not the military, and most employees work family lives and children's school/daycare around their work schedule and location. Our families come before you moving techs around due to misguided decisions and layoffs.
