    St Joseph is a very good place to work, but it has many areas to improve on before it can become a great place to work.

    Pros

    St Joseph does a very good job of holding true to its core values. Employees are for the most part treated fairly and feel like they are contributing to the greater good of society. Furthermore, employment at St Joseph is quite stable (the organization appears to try to avoid layoffs at all costs), and fosters a strong work life balance.

    Cons

    St Joseph’s organizational structure does not lend itself to very effective communication between locations or business units. This lack of communication has helped foster the implementation of quite a few duplicative/conflicting business processes, and the formation of rigid organizational silos.

    In addition to limited communication, St Joseph—as a whole—is fairly averse to change, with Senior Management appearing reluctant to stand up to ministry requests that are contrary to the greater good. This results in projects taking much longer to complete (and becoming overly complex to operate) than they would at other organizations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Personally, I think Senior Management has gone too far in allowing autonomy at the local ministries. Senior Management needs to require a baseline set of business processes/controls for all locations, and enforce these requirements at all ministries.
