    I worked at BJC HealthCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits as you would expect from a healthcare provider.

    Cons

    The supply chain has zero to no direction. Very poor leadership at the director level. The strategy is confined to getting through day-to-day.

    The supply chain is grossly silo'd and very little collaboration exists.

    Leadership manages by personal favors for individuals outside of the supply chain, (commonly referred to as Green Stamps,) and not the greater good.

    Hiring practices are poor; however, retention is guaranteed if you keep your head down, mouth shut and agree with the leadership. There seems to be more energy put into a personal career growth instead of the outcome of the job they have been hired to do.

    Responsibility and accountability are pushed down about 2 levels down, meaning the managers and supervisors of the supply chain have no capability in the execution of the day-to-day operations. In fact, they collectively have little experience, knowledge or capability. The newer hires have no experience and are being led by those that have only their current job as a frame of reference. Very little industry insight.

    The supply chain has turned over3-4 times in the last 5 years with the exception of those at the director level. The employee recognition program is a scam. Specific managers and directors choose members from their own team as award winners and then point back to themselves as having the highest amount of monthly and quarterly winners; therefore, their leadership must excel by association.

    Unfortunately, even at the President level, there is little, true attention being paid to the real performance of the supply chain.

    HR personnel privately will tell you they know the leadership is ineffective, but they are unwilling to intervene. They have holding exit interviews. The word is out in the industry and they are having extreme difficulty attracting high performers.

    Advice to Management

    Reorganize the supply chain from director level, down. Remove any leader that is not truly performing to industry standards, let alone, local standards. Anyone that cannot give you a list of real KPI's or explain how they affect the ones they have, should be encouraged to find something else to do outside of the supply chain. Relieve any director, manager or supervisor unwilling to hold their team accountable to one strategy from their position.

    Pros

    Build great working relationships with professionals in all areas of health care and supporting functions. BJC offers strong development opportunities for those who show the initiative to explore it. There are many changes taking place within BJC to position us better for the future. Angst coming primarily from those who have been very comfortable (complacent?) with status quo for a long time. The best is yet to come.

    Cons

    Often slow to decision and act.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course, continue to be courageous in decision-making. Perhaps encourage more definitive, efficient decisions so that we are not dragging on trying to get agreement.
