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

    Pros

    The culture, mission and people of CHI make working here more than just a job, it's the CHI family. CHI was founded on a spirit of innovation and challenging the status quo. I love being part of a company that desires to shape the future of health care and genuinely cares about the people we serve and about us as employees.

    Cons

    CHI is experiencing some growing pains due to almost doubling in size over the last several years. It's a common challenge for large organizations, especially in health care, but at the same time is an exciting opportunity for shaping the future of CHI.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to employees - they often have creative ideas for innovation and helpful change to push the company forward.

    I worked at Catholic Health Initiatives full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They keep up with technology.
    Just like most other large companies out there which can be good or bad based on your mindset.
    Good place to get experience in a highly regulated industry.
    May be good if you came on-board via non-merger?
    You can help people - work with a meaning.

    Cons

    My observation/opinion: the very large hospital chain that I was an employee at was excited to be merged into CHI. However, instead a lot of people were outsourced/layed off. I wasn't one of those that was outsourced but I saw what happened to everyone else. Maybe if you are coming in via non-merger it's a good place to work, but I saw that and found another job shortly after.

    Advice to Management

    I've been a devout Catholic all my life. I am no longer after working here. I understand you have to run things efficiently to accomplish your mission of helping those in need. But your employees should also be more of a part of that mission in my opinion.
