Pros

EXPOSURE! You will have the opportunity to work with varying levels of staff, numerous systems, different scenarios and whatever else comes up.

Professional Growth - Say what you will about CHS good or bad you are going to grow from the challenges you will face both professionally and culturally.

Opportunity - A lot of what is going on at CHS in regards to the negative feedback has a lot to due to their success and rapid growth. While this does create a lot of the negatives people refer to it also makes opportunity fro someone willing to go for it.

Cons

Pay for management is below average.

A lot of weak management.

Too many chiefs? How many VPs does one department really need?

Company still trying to find their identity/culture since acquiring Triad.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a good look at management and see what they are really doing? Are they accountable? Do they stand behind their people?

    CHS gives room for advancement and opportunity but at a cost.

    Pros

    If you are a hard worker and do a good job there are a lot of opportunities, you can make a lot if you are willing to move and travel.

    Cons

    This company is concerned about the bottom line before you or your family. You are only graded on what you produce or the goals you make whether it is done the right way or not. Also not all hospitals are treated the same way, some are granted leniency while others are constantly scrutinized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To just remember that the little people are the ones that make hospitals successful, not the doctors or the stock holders or people on the top floor.
