    Pros

    Covenient and benefits are adequate

    Cons

    Management in Lubbock is not much more than overpaid seat warmers, all decisions are made in California and no one in Lubbock has the guts to stand up for anything.

    Former Employee - IT Analyst in Anaheim, CA

    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

    Growth opportunity, faith-based, fair pay, friendly environment, access to senior leadership.

    Cons

    Can be political, minimal staff in most areas, conflicting ever-changing priorities, ongoing struggle between system office and individual hospitals which causes great delays an impacts productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase transparency, greater alignment with hospitals so we can function as a true health system. Hoag? I don't even know where to begin...

    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.

    Great people with great values, management seems to be stuck and inefficient

    Pros

    The people you work with are great - values, culture, work ethic.
    Everyone is very friendly and helpful, from System office into the various hospitals.
    The employees generally have better ethics and values than many in management and executive levels.

    Cons

    Executives and management don't 'walk their talk' which can be frustrating.
    Some departments are undergoing extensive and haphazard restructuring - IT and other system office level departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Live the core values or revise the list. You only embarrass yourselves.
    If you can't competently manage change, find consultants that can do it for you and do it well.

    I have been working at St. Joseph Health System

    Pros

    NONE- I found this team to be very rude

    Cons

    The interview panel did not ALLOW for any questions from the candidate- Why is this a one way interview? Candidates should have the opportunity to ask questions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Coach your HR Teams as well as your Recruiters that candidates have choices- especially in OC-Don't forget the candidates out there are users of your hospital and pay your bills so be respectful- the Dir of Recruiting should know this!

    Pros

    Some very caring, competent people. Usually try to give staff backup. Fair compensation package with attempt to keep employees healthy.

    Cons

    Financial picture is bleak due to recent purchase of EMR that overburdened the entire company. They had to make draconian cuts which have been made before. As a result, the office staff is at a bare minimum and stress level is high. Prepare to work overtime! HR will always back up management in a conflict!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not blame the nurses for problems they did not create! They do not come to work thinking "how can I do a bad job today?" They are working as hard as possible (most of them)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. Strong values.

    Cons

    Although there is a strong sense of values, there are (with every company) politics with upper management. I have a horrible boss and nothing is done about her work ethic.
