    Pros

    Great co-workers, department directors and VP, caring and mission-centered corporate office atmosphere. Good benefits, ability to work remotely.

    Cons

    Making less money than previous employment. Uncertainty of the future due to pending (possible) merger.

    Advice to Management

    It's a tough business started by tough nuns. Harness CHI's foremothers' spirit, fairness, and vision in all aspects of the business and treatment of employees.

    I have been working at Catholic Health Initiatives full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people and a few good leaders... hardworking colleges trying to remain patient and sane....just hoping for some positive change soon.

    Cons

    I'm truly saddened and embarrassed about the quality of work our department has deemed as acceptable.

    This department has lost organization, structure, and accountability since the replacement of our last director. Countless processes are being missed, neglected, or possibly ignored on purpose to protect the false perception of "meeting sla."

    We don't have department meetings anymore and team to team communication is a constant struggle. Leadership now only meets every other week...How can you expect to work out these issues with one hour meetings every two weeks?

    Stop tip toeing and actually pin point the problems. Leadership needs to find an open and honest dialogue with each other and needs to be more transparent with each team. Make some changes, try new things, make mistakes.. but doing the bare minimum and letting things slip is really taking its toll on the employees working for this department.

    For the past few years It feels like leadership is always blaming the lack of progress on "the waiting game." Waiting for new and "better" systems to solve all their problems. Unfortunately the sloppy choices and poor implementations only cause more issues and frustration for the employees having to adjust.

    Advice to Management

    This department is full of amazing people and some great leaders, who if were allowed, would be able to clean up this growing mess. The processes we had worked well when followed and we truly have the tools to be successful. Either step up or get us a new leader who takes this growing mess seriously and can help get this department running smoothly again. Stop putting bandaids on everything and actually get organized and consistent!

     We need to reorganize an issues team and pay attention to the thousands of unprocessed credit memos and thousands of neglected po issue invoices rotting away and hidden from SLA lies.

    Work with supply chain and PSC on process improvements. Keep an open feedback dialogue with the MBOs but don't allow them to run the department. Create expectations, document processes and communicate it! Have more one on ones and team meetings! Only when we all work together and are on the same page can we be successful and give quality work.

    Pros

    Hourly employees are fantastic, eager to provide suggestions for improvement, and great teamwork

    Cons

    I have worked for CHI for over 5 years. When I started working here, I genuinely felt that the core values were important, and were practiced. Over the course of the past few years, they have become a joke. Most of the downturn on morale has been due to the interim director. The term leadership is not appropriate, rather she is a dictator that refuses to listen to the many suggestions of employees, or see any fault in herself. She does not understand the day to day operations at the ground level. It has been suggested several times that she spend a day with the hourly employees to obtain more of a grasp of the task they complete, and the time it takes to do so, with no avail. She has also implemented an unrealistic attendance policy, which results in termination after four call ins, regardless of if the notification is provided the day prior. This is extremely insensitive and lacking in compassion for the employees, as many of us have families, and ongoing medical issues. Furthermore, managers who's mistakes are corrected on a daily basis by hourly employees are being considered for promotions, due to a high-school-like clique mentality of the current director, while the hard working managers that actually want to make changes for improvement have been passed over time and time again. This has lead to employees feeling very defeated , and does not foster motivation

    Advice to Management

    A plan of action needs to be created for the director, she should be required to spend time learning the processes of the day to day operations, or be removed from the position. Suggestions from employees to improve process should be seriously considered by leadership, and the attendance policy should be corrected to address the employees who are abusing their time off, rather than punishing everyone for the actions of a few

    Pros

    Benefits are fairly good
    Somewhat flexible working hours

    Cons

    Company sets some expectations but doesn't provide some tools. example only a certain few people get some kind of stipend for cell phones (more than 50% travel seems to be the criteria) but most of IT is expected to be available at any time. They used to provide cell phones to most people who were expected to be available at all times but took that "privilege" away a few years ago as a cost saving move. Now the employee bears that cost.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership needs to pay more attention to what their employees communicate to them. I fear that they are, in some cases, being shielded from bad news by their subordinates. In other cases they clearly don't pay attention to what is being communicated to them and just tend to blow it off and if they reply at all it is some sort of lip service standard reply.

    Pros

    Can pick up additional shifts with incentives. Only required to work 3 days a week.

    Cons

    Training is not professional. There's no consistency between staff. Everyone did things their own way. Half the rules were broken. Staff talked about each other constantly.

    Advice to Management

    There should be professional training and a supervisor at night.
