I worked at Baylor Health Care System full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Good pay, good benefits, a lot of wonderful experienced people with clinical backgrounds that genuinely want to make a difference. Diverse hiring.

Cons

Running too lean and pushing to be more lean. IT (BIS) does not invest the time and resources to get it done correct the first time. The IT infrastructure is such a critical element to day to day operation and success of the Hospitals, yet BIS seems completely disconnected from the top leadership in the org. A great deal of time is spend fixing issues, putting out fires, instead of taking the time to figure out a long term solution. No work/life balance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Corporate needs to get eyes on IT. They seem to always be one step away from disaster in an extremely complex environment.

    I worked at Baylor Health Care System full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Location, family oriented, ability to move around within the organization. Has some very good people scattered throughout the organization. Has potential to become great

    Cons

    Low pay, HR not helpful, recruitment not proactive, stuck in the "this is how we have always done it" mentality. Requires Director or above to get other teams to contribute, poor benefits package, lack of innovation, culture beats go-getters into submission or drives them out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make staff/mgmt accountable, stop the excuses, empower others, stop the "this is how we have always done it". Turn the tide to become PROACTIVE, Accountable, and LEAD.
