Pros

It is a large company with a lot of opportunity. There are Nursing careers all across the spectrum.

Cons

Being such a monstrous healthcare system you could feel lost in the crowd. Some people really like working for small companies and having one on one contact with upper management. In the 2 BJC hospitals I have worked in, the presidents have come floor to floor to have quarterly meetings with floor employees.

Advice to Management

Focus on the point of care service. If you expect Excellent service, you need to provide the right staff and tools for that staff. Nurses and techs need to have a reasonable patient load to be able to care for them in a way that results in excellent care. It is hard to make your patients feel special if you have 6 of them.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at BJC is the insurance is good. They also have good training and give a good amount of vacation.

    Cons

    Work life balance is a con for working with BJC. It seems that you can never get away from e-mail.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    • Reliable paycheck
    • Available Parking
    • Benefits OK (Not as great as one would expect from a HealthCare organization - see cons)

    Cons

    • Recruiter misled in interview process as to future office upkeep - promised would have full control of office and staff similar to independent facility which has not happened
    • Impossible to terminate bad-performing staff
    • Good-performing staff difficult to keep due to low salaries and inability to terminate other staff
    • Management is made up of a revolving door of ill-trained people.
    • EMR is slow, clunky, unattractive and infrequently updated
    • Benefits are not as good as my spouse who works outside of healthcare

    Advice to Management

    They don't accept advice. Every time suggestions are given, they are ignored.
    Competent and honost leadership go a long way. Try it.
