I have been working at Catholic Health Initiatives full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Independent work. Ability to work from home. Usually feel appreciated. Nice people.

Cons

People are put into supervisor and management positions that do not belong there. Poor work/life balance, Understaffed, lack of communication, one day you have a full team and the next people get fired without any insight to what they did wrong so you don't make the same mistake. Ever-changing. Nothing is ever consistent. Also with the mandatory PTO between Christmas and New Year seems very unfair. Part of the reason I had accepted the offer in 2013 was because of the benefits which included a little bit more PTO than what I had before but that has been taken away with the mandatory PTO requirements. Generally overworked. No budget to hire people, no budget to get training on the new products that you are expected to support, many responsibilities placed without any promotion/compensation, very tight timelines, confusion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Send supervisors to management courses. Communicate to the employees when they are doing something wrong and give them a chance to correct it. General communication needs to increase. Hire more people. Bring the work back to the US and get rid of Wipro - worst decision CHI ever made.

    Pros

    Faith based company that give training, especially in the area of project management PDUs. Co-workers are very good to get along with.

    Cons

    CHI seems to have high turnover which seems to happen in these types of health care situations. More a function of where the industry is than their organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in keeping people on either contract or adding full-time.

    I worked at Catholic Health Initiatives (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable work-life balance depending on the part of the organization you were in. For those who can make a connection to the mission of saving lives, this can be a rewarding part of the job. Somewhat difficult to do at corporate where you may never see a medical facility unless you are a patient.

    Cons

    CHI corporate operates under an organizational structure that would be unrecognizable to almost anyone coming from the outside. This dysfunctional setup creates a highly politicized environment as leaders in the organization are constantly trying to define roles for their teams and carve out responsibilities from other teams. The environment is so conflict adverse that healthy conflict is subverted and becomes venomous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a close look at how the national office is organized. There seems to be a lot of redundant work taking place across teams.
