    So much potential, but it just always falls short

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsIt is an easy, low-stress job.

    ConsIt's an easy job - no challenges, and I don't see any interesting work coming down the pike. IT seems to be stuck in the 90's (on a good day), and although there is CONSTANT talk of change, nothing seems to happen. It doesn't feel there is any focus on fixing real problems, there is too much of a "we've always done it this way" mentality - and it goes all the way up the IT chain. All too often problems are ignored until they become critical, then everyone panics and rushes to resolve. The vacation policy is archaic.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHold people accountable for doing their damn jobs. Listen to people you hired to do the work rather than panicking and making knee-jerk reaction decisions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Poor management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLove the people I worked directly with

    ConsInvisible, weak, gossiping CNO.
    The three people in the c suite make all decision without any input whatsoever from the troops even though they say they want to be transparent and good communicators- THEY ARE NOT.
    Human Resources is the riches department with the most employees yet the people interfacing with actual patients have no support or adequate resources.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the CNO immediately followed by the rest of C-Suite
    Practice what you preach
    Involve the right people, not just the ones that have been there forever and little /no formal education and only on the job training they received at NJ. It isn't even close to standards in the real world. All across the board.
    Be fair, not fickle
    Never let great talent slip away as what has happened the last year.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
