    I worked at City of Hope full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful mission, culture and history, great clinical staff who are generally trying to do what’s right. Close knit community within the enterprise environment. Great employees all around.

    Cons

    Afraid to quickly let go of a bad leaders making the rest of the organization suffer. Historically, COH has not done a good job holding on to good leaders on the other hand. IT has been on downward path for past 4-5 years while the business has been expanding very fast. Impossible expectation coming from business side desperately calls out for a charge back model for IT services. IT directors and C-level opportunities are never offered to people within.

    Advice to Management

    Implement chargeback model for IT services required by each department to quantify cost of IT and level-set user expectations. Stop hiring C-level leaders that were practically fired by other organizations. (No more CIO job offer to board member’s cousin plz) Groom leaders within the organization, especially those that have already dedicated their time serving the mission of COH in various roles.
