Pros

It's nice to work for a healthcare organization where you feel like you're helping people (or supporting the people that help people). CHI is a large company with a lot of money, so you can usually get the resources you need. Benefits are decent but healthcare is a little below average considering this is a HEALTHCARE provider...

Cons

Management at most levels is incompetent. There is a total lack of vision and reliance on consultants to get anything done. Most managers are in a CYA mode. There are a ton - I mean a TON - of meetings, sometimes just to figure out when another meeting could be scheduled. Hospitals function independently, so everyone has their own processes and procedures. RICE (Reverence, Integrity, Compassion, Excellence) values are constantly stressed, but management ignores them as soon as they feel like they can save a dollar.

Advice to Management

Grow a back bone. Make a decision and stick with it, even if it's the wrong one. At least you made a decision. Listen to your employees. Actually live your values instead of just talking about them.

    Pros

    Great benefits, core values. CHI has lots going on in I.T. so it feels very secure.

    Cons

    HR is, in a word, peculiar. There are strange rules about salary increases and promotions. Any type of HR process takes an incredible amount of time -- getting hired, being promoted, applying for and moving to a new position, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the HR chaos. Discard the rules that inhibit paying market salaries or CHI will simply be a training organization and the fruits of that training will walk out the door with your expertise, to be paid equitably.

    Pros

    longevity they seem to work with employees to keep the talent. But now want to outsource everyone.

    Cons

    Outsourcing all of IT to India and who knows where.

    Advice to Management
