    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Ambitious organization with great influence in the community and around the country. Organization has nearly doubled in size over the past 10 years. Cranes are plentiful and so are resources.

    Cons

    You don't stand a chance being promoted internally. Your are better off as an externally to get fair market value pay. The executive levels of management from Director down are very political with promotion opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    You have talented folks within the system but you have to stop overlooking them for the new talent.

    Former Employee - Staff RN in Saint Louis, MO

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

    Pros

    Benefits were competitive. High profile company.

    Cons

    Pay not all that great. Poor work/life management. Nurses eat their young. High turnover and high nurse/patient ratios . Middle management showed favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Stop showing favoritism. Decrease nurse/patient ratios to 4 or 5 to 1. Nurture new nurses more. Allow more autonomy for seasoned nurses. Get rid of night charge nurse. It's not necessary.

    Pros

    an opportunity to meet a lot of new people on a daily basis. Benefits could be better. Bonuses are good. A great place to work if your main goal is to help people.

    Cons

    Management is all over the place doing way to much. No structure at all. No advancement opportunity. You work 4 to 5 different department with same pay. Management will have you reapply for your same position if it is offered in another building to keep you from transferring out the department for another year, when it's only a lateral move.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest, fair, and trustworthy. Help your employees grow within the department. Respect your employees. Be professional and treat your employees like you want to be treated. Train and promote your employees not your close friends to the family and your favorites, but those who would like the opportunity to grow within the company.

    Pros

    Good experience in medical field that may not be gained anywhere else. Co-workers are usually very experienced and willing to help.

    Cons

    Major lack of consistency among holding employees accountable, if the employee is even held accountable. Lack of communication makes it difficult to stay up to date with changes within the area you work. Never ever enough staffing, cause for dangerous conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency and communication improvement would increase employees experiences.

    Pros

    Very organized company. Lots of resources available for staff. Friendly people working for this company.

    Cons

    The pay is low. The staffing grid system is terrible.I get floated to other floors way too much. I was hired to work on my floor, not others. The hospital is too big.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest they focus on having safe patient-nurse ratio. There have been many nights i was worried about my patients' safety and my nursing license with no help.
