    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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    salary was ok but there were poor raises the only cost of living.

    Cons

    was forced to work in an 8' by 10' room with five other therapists, literally backing into each other. no focus on work lead therapist was distracting and not helpful. the requests were made but no office space was given at crossroads OLOP. Management shrugged it off like it didn't matter. Management was inconsistent, sparse and relied on the corporate mood elevator cards to inspire therapists, that was insulting. Management meetings were poorly run, no input from employees, and beginning with ridiculous quotes from managers phone ap, how not to say yes to everyone and do nothing should be taught in a class for the current management.

    Advice to Management

    grow up, it's a hospital, OLOP is not a high school with popular and unpopular kids.

    Pros

    Co-workers and physicians were great. Admin, not so much

    Cons

    Horrible place to work. CHI cares nothing about its employees. Constant cuts to budget, no wage increases, constant mergers do nothing to help this organization.

    Advice to Management

    Management isn't the problem. It's upper administration/CHI Board of Directors that need to go. This place continues to be driven in the ground, yet nothing's changed for years with CEO or admin.
