    Keep listening and dialoguing. Information that flows both ways is great for morale and encourages loyalty.

    I have been working at BJC HealthCare full-time

    Pros

    Tremendously supportive, progressive and professional.

    Cons

    In some instances, significantly behind the competition in terms of technology which can be challenging. Additionally, decision-making can often be swayed too heavily by political manipulation although that's often a reality of the healthcare industry.

    Advice to Management

    Push harder on collaborative relationships now as opposed to continually giving in to maintain peaceful relations. I fear we may be setting a precedent that may have the potential to cause significant harm in the future.

    Limited office space due to rapid growth

    I worked at BJC HealthCare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting projects. Good benefits. Great coworkers. Good management and healthy work environment. Nice retirement plan and healthcare options, multiple choices for dental and health care.

    Cons

    Interesting projects, but you get little choice of what you work on.
    Don't always keep the best workers, and there is little enticement to keep those that are well educated or experienced to stay. At times I have seen great folks asked to not let them have the door hit them on the way out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep those that have experience and knowledge. Those that are younger may be cheaper but the quality of what you get is what you are paying for.

    I have been working at BJC HealthCare (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Dynamic environment; smart, capable co-workers; strong leadership; outstanding commitment to mission. The work environment is challenging and demanding, but highly rewarding.

    Cons

    Sometimes slow decision making. This organization is complex (more an observation than a "con".) Entitlement mentality among many workers; blame the organization for everything bad in their lives. :(

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be an internationally recognized health system. Be courageous. Take action with poor performers and reward/recognize/pay attention to your great ones!
