    Pros

    A lot of good coworkers

    Cons

    Overall, CHI sucked. It was once a company I felt proud to work for. Then they decided outsourcing was the answer to fix the budget deficits created by poor management and bad acquisitions.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Catholic Health Initiatives part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Their core values are amazing! I loved getting a daily prayer in my email. They implemented a group huddle/meeting every day for 10-15 minutes to go over concerns and successes.

    Cons

    There were not many opportunities to become full-time or even part-time day hours. Working mandatory weekends and extra shifts was unpleasant.

    Advice to Management

    I would have liked to see more team building events throughout each month to encourage unity and support between coworkers.

    Pros

    Co-workers and type of work. Goals to improve healthcare on national scale.

    Cons

    Leadership management and financial issues leaves to uncertainty of positions in ITS Department. CHI tends to vacillate between outsourcing/software service model/contractors and employees. Road map is unclear and indecisiveness leads to urgency or reactionary management and projects.

    Advice to Management

    Identify root cause of issues, stick to road map, value talent and change. Project and vendor management requires backbone and staff.

    Catholic Health Initiatives Response

    Pros

    Great people and mission. Compensation and benefits were better than average although medical insurance premiums increased greatly with less coverage.

    Cons

    Senior level leadership and executives do not uphold the organization's values or mission. Misguided acquisitions and expenditures. Grew too fast and without regard to impact to organization.
