Terrible Place for IT Career but Acceptable Job I Suppose

I worked at Community Healthcare System full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Lots of tech to play with, you'll likely learn a lot here. It's close to home for anyone living in NWI. They're constantly growing, so you'll constantly be working.

Cons

IT management doesn't care about you as a person. Organization management doesn't care about IT as a department. HR doesn't care about employees, they only care about protecting the company interests. They are horribly understaffed (which is why you'll get to learn a lot. No choice) and you will be donating plenty of personal time without compensation (hourly workers do get overtime but salaried people are indentured servants). The insurance is terrible if you are ever off network (and you're only on network if you're at one of the 3 hospitals or associated clinics).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit taking advantage of your staff. There are better places to work and you're likely going to keep losing staff unless you start treating people better. AIDET was a great idea, you should try using it internally to make staff feel less like a bag of trash. You ask people all the time "Who thinks this is a job?" just to see who plays into your attempt to claim there are careers. Once you're doing a job your stuck doing it without chance for a promotion. The only path to a carrer here is if you allow yourself to get trampled on and taken advantage of OR if you become a useless analyst.
