    Pros

    Immediate supervisor great to work with. Teamwork was the name of the game.

    Cons

    As soon as various departments started outsourcing morale plummeted.

    Advice to Management

    Retention of well-qualified staff is a must.

    Thanks for posting this review about your time at CHI. Teamwork is important to us too! CHI had to flex to meet the demands of the changing healthcare landscape and had to make difficult decisions ... More

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

    Pros

    Hospital is small family environment, staff usually is very appreciative of Respiratory assistance and input

    Cons

    Do not feel valued, raises are once per year range from 2%-2.5% depending on merit. Being a great employee as opposed to average results in a few extra pennies.

    Advice to Management

    Review pay scale and raises. Working hard results in a few extra cents per raise, which promotes mediocrity.

    Pros

    Great team to work with, and a great work life balance. Was always allowed to take time off for appointments and such, and was free to work from home when needed.

    Cons

    Not much in the way of employee development or getting mid level employees involved in decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Get people involved, they want to be a part of the action and feel like they're contributing to what the company is working towards. There were times when it felt like a job that I would just show up for, do the work then go home, and I don't think many people are looking for that.

    I worked at Catholic Health Initiatives (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are little pros. I would say the employees but they are all being laid off or are leaving.

    Cons

    CHI is not truthtful and are deceptive. They lie to their employees and companies they have joint ventures with. Mis management over several rarsbjas robbed this company of any Dignity. Leadership is non existent, patient care is horrible. Employees are miserable.

    Advice to Management

    You havent got a clue. Its pretty bad when employeez can see the mistakes beig made before management.

    Pros

    Good benefits! Some of the immediate supervisors treat you like family.

    Cons

    None of the managers do their jobs and way too much drama and backstabbing.

    Pros

    Worked with a lot intelligent people. Job was awesome.

    Cons

    Executive leadership has no clue what they are doing, house needs to be cleaned! Too much money wasted on programs, initiatives that never came to fruition. Started outsourcing departments thinking that would solve their problems. Biggest mistake ever!!!

    Advice to Management

    Fire all executive management, start over!

    Pros

    The people that work for CHI are as good as anywhere. But leadership reminds me of a dysfunctional alcoholic family....enabling each other so they keep their positions. But most are afraid to speak up against each other even in truth

    Cons

    The Cons are explained in the Pros

    Advice to Management

    Be loyal to the ones that make you look good...under you.
