    I worked at BJC HealthCare full-time

    Pros

    It's an organization that offers great opportunities for employees because of its size and multiple locations. And, it's great to work for an organization that does so much good for so many.

    Cons

    There really aren't any negatives. It's all about what you make of the opportunity.

    I have been working at BJC HealthCare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Prestigious employer, consistently rated in the top 10 hospitals in America. An associated College of Medicine, College of Pharmacy, and School of Nursing contribute to it as a teaching hospital.

    Cons

    Patient population can be difficult, with many non compliant patients leading to multiple comorbidities, which can make for complicated patient assessment and care but also provides rich learning opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep striving to improve patient care, employee satisfaction, and retention, and maintaining the hospital's long standing Magnet designation using evidenced based care.

    Pros

    Great organization to work for
    Has a great reputation in healthcare and good leadership
    Endless opportunities within organization (see compensation con for the downside)

    Cons

    Compensation guidelines for internal transfers doesn't allow for a great deal of salary increases.
    Disconnected hospital system leads to each hospital recreating the wheel

    Advice to Management

    Change the internal transfer guidelines to allow young talent to grow and increase salary. Several colleagues have come to BJC and left due to unfair compensation guidelines.
