I worked at St. Joseph Health System as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Not sure if there are any.

Cons

Infrastructure management has a very confrontational attitude towards contract employees. We are "just <f word> contractors, so just do your job or you'll get replaced." Management uses threats instead of leadership, and this is towards both contractors and employees.

The network and telecom group seem to be all learning on the job, with no real current skillsets. This is evident with a new VoIP program being implemented. No technical or management experience, but yet the expert provider hired to implement is constantly ignored.
Not sure if the CIO is aware of the incompetent infrastructure management, but he really needs to take a close look.

IT doesn't seem to follow the core values instilled by the Sisters, and the this is the first place I have ever seen where using LEAN methodologies is completely backward actually causing increased and duplicate work effort.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The CEO and CIO need to take a very close look at Infrastructure to see the underlying issues of poor management and decisions. You cannot brow beat employees, or promote techs to manager that just become parrots...really.

    Pros

    St. Joseph Health System is flexible with schedules to include a positive work-life balance. They encourage continued education and benefits are provided. There are opportunities for growth and development.

    Cons

    Some downsides are from a leadership stand point. Not everyone is open to large initiatives and consolidations that include major change. Also, it may be hard to adapt to all the new reforms and changes in healthcare.
