    I worked at BJC HealthCare full-time

    Pros

    Very experienced staff, 100% degreed individuals.

    Cons

    Can be difficult to have an impact as there are so many moving parts, you have to laboriously plan your project implementations to coordinate with many departments. Be prepared to work hard and collaborate extensively to ensure success.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders can be more involved in individual contributions than to building teams and supporting roles. Try to provide more support to teams and provide bridges to internal opportunities.

    I worked at BJC HealthCare full-time

    Pros

    They do have good opportunities to participate in the community and do give back to the community.

    Cons

    Turnover in HR makes it hard to know who to contact
    Changes in policies make it difficult to keep up
    Espoused values do not match what the organization actually practices

    I would never work for BJC again. They continually change HR policies which makes it difficult to keep up with the correct policies. They communicate their values during new employee orientation, but it's hard to find management or HR who actually practice those values. There is so much turnover in HR that you cannot keep up with who to contact or be in touch with when questions arise.

    Why do you think this organization has so much turnover? It's easy to see why

    Advice to Management

    Improve HR practices

    I worked at BJC HealthCare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some great people and good opportunity to contribute to something larger.

    Cons

    Some people can be taken with themselves. It's all about the core of your leader. While some truly value employees, some give it lip service.

    Advice to Management

    Value leaders like Lee Fetter, Rich Liekweg, David Weiss, Bob Canon, John Antes, Clay Dunagan and Steve Lipstein. Find people who don't act a certain way based upon who is looking (Roberts and Beatty)

    I worked at BJC HealthCare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, reasonable pay. Many long term employees who are dedicated and care. Job security is very high.

    Cons

    Pretty conservative culture. Not very aggressive about handling poor performers - which means better performer pick up slack. Annual increases don't truly reflect merit, etc. so higher performers often get the short stick. Of course this is off set in large part by the job security.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more incentives both financially and otherwise for higher performers.

    Paid less than area hospitals, no critical care differential, understaffed.
