I have been working at Baylor Health Care System full-time

Pros

Employee morale is higher at Baylor than anywhere I've ever worked. There is a definite sense of pride amongst the employees who work here. Plenty of opportunity for advancement. My particular position has minimal job stress. Benefits are exceptional. Baylor covers all of the DFW metroplex so there are many locations to work at based on where you live. Genuinely nice people.

Cons

Although the benefits are great, compensation is lacking. The opportunities for advancement quickly go to those who have more tenure with the organization, regardless of qualifications - which is not necessarily a bad thing, but makes it very difficult for newer employees trying to advance within the organization. Often times new jobs are only posted because they are required to be, while the hiring managers already have a candidate lined up for the new positions.The size of the organization, while it provides many opportunities, causes all processes to move very slowly - it takes months to get expenses reimbursed, the interview/hiring process moves at a snails pace, etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When filling new jobs, honor the process of seeking out and considering all applicants. Take into consideration professional qualifications in addition to tenure.

    Former Employee - BIS in Dallas, TX

    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.

    Pros

    Good staff education and benefits

    Cons

    Corporate is often in another city and doesn't care about the details.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't tighten up on the nursing staff when management is sitting upstairs all fat and happy.
