    Pros

    -Great experience which looks good on a resume.
    -Good place to get a foot in the door.
    -If you know or fraternize with the right people, you can climb the ranks fast, regardless of actual IT knowledge.
    -Get paid to sit in meetings and socialize most of the day. Do maybe 15 minutes of actual work. You will not be held accountable.

    Cons

    -IS hiring process is all about internal politics. The result is a very large group of employees who have absolutely no idea how to do their job, and pass it on to more experienced and knowledgeable , but less compensated co workers.
    -Job titles mean nothing, and is just an excuse to pay employees less.
    -1.5% annual raise. No opportunity for a merit raise.
    -Zero accountability.
    -Easier to get a promotion by leaving company and then returning than it is to simply get a promotion.
    -Massive management structure with far too much overhead. No one actually knows who is responsible for what.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Get rid of the dead weight. The company is hemorrhaging money trying to continue to pay salaries of non-working analysts, senior analysts, and management.
    -Stop over-planning for projects to try and perfect them, and instead plan for elasticity in project planning to allow for change as time goes on.
    -Most management takes 2-3 hour lunch breaks and roams the office talking when they're not in meetings to discuss future meetings. This is a huge morale killer for those who are not making 6 figures to simply exist.

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

    Pros

    work/life balance for some, multiple employer sponsored social events, a true pension which is all but unheard of these days

    Cons

    very poor talent management, lack of initiative and drive, no compensation growth, no advancement opportunities, deep resistance to change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hand the reins over to someone with the energy and charisma to truly lead the organization. Advance those who truly make a difference and coach those who do not to either improve or find a role that better suits their outlook. Do not let your book keeping practices undercut operational capabilities, which is happening now.
