    Overworked, underpaid, and not appreciated

    Pros

    Decent health insurance and other benefits. Good amount of PTO accrual. Steady hours and job security. Coworkers who are willing to work as a team to get job done.

    Cons

    Difficult to get approval for PTO, scant raises, no appreciation for hard work and genuine effort. Only receive notice when an error is made, patient safety is often at risk in CHS hospitals as well as your license as a professional. No effort is made to rotate holidays so same employees work all holidays every year.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your lower level employees, tell them if you see them doing a good job, we like to know when we are doing something well and not only when we are doing something wrong. Don't play favorites. For direct supervisors, if you think something is going on with one of your employees talk to them directly about it, don't let it continue until they hear about it from another source, stop the problem before it starts!

    Pros

    Stable job. They love to boast about not having laid of employees. Since they use a large contractor force they are able to let them go without touching their employees.

    Cons

    Lower level management and Directors are terrified of the C level. Salaries are low and their are no bonuses or compensation for completing business objectives. Salary levels are defended in meetings as being in line with average field salaries. This is achieved by using basic titles such as "Systems Analyst" or Security Engineer". Since these are very generic titles compared to your job functions it allows CHS to compete on paper.

    Advice to Management

    The C level needs to be shaken up for anything to change at CHS.
