I have been working at BJC HealthCare full-time

Pros

Tremendously supportive, progressive and professional.

Cons

In some instances, significantly behind the competition in terms of technology which can be challenging. Additionally, decision-making can often be swayed too heavily by political manipulation although that's often a reality of the healthcare industry.

Advice to Management

Push harder on collaborative relationships now as opposed to continually giving in to maintain peaceful relations. I fear we may be setting a precedent that may have the potential to cause significant harm in the future.

    Pros

    -Great experience which looks good on a resume.
    -Good place to get a foot in the door.
    -If you know or fraternize with the right people, you can climb the ranks fast, regardless of actual IT knowledge.
    -Get paid to sit in meetings and socialize most of the day. Do maybe 15 minutes of actual work. You will not be held accountable.

    Cons

    -IS hiring process is all about internal politics. The result is a very large group of employees who have absolutely no idea how to do their job, and pass it on to more experienced and knowledgeable , but less compensated co workers.
    -Job titles mean nothing, and is just an excuse to pay employees less.
    -1.5% annual raise. No opportunity for a merit raise.
    -Zero accountability.
    -Easier to get a promotion by leaving company and then returning than it is to simply get a promotion.
    -Massive management structure with far too much overhead. No one actually knows who is responsible for what.

    Advice to Management

    -Get rid of the dead weight. The company is hemorrhaging money trying to continue to pay salaries of non-working analysts, senior analysts, and management.
    -Stop over-planning for projects to try and perfect them, and instead plan for elasticity in project planning to allow for change as time goes on.
    -Most management takes 2-3 hour lunch breaks and roams the office talking when they're not in meetings to discuss future meetings. This is a huge morale killer for those who are not making 6 figures to simply exist.
