    I have been working at Barnes-Jewish Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Prestigous company as far as one of the top hospitals around, decent health benefits, tuition reimbursement ($4,500 if full time and half of that if part time), earned time off with the option of selling ETO once a year, pension plan & 401k.

    Cons

    Where do I begin...unless you are a nurse or hold some type of clinical position, BJH treats you as if you're a piece of crap AND doesn't pay administrative positions crap!! BJH does not try to fill posi-
    tions from within first--they could care less, and if you do transfer to a higher pay grade, they will start you off at the very beginning of the pay level despite your experience--despicable. They will hire someone from the outside and pay them more than you because you are transferring from within.

    Advice to Management

    Look around -- the employees are NOT happy!! We are treated like a number and it's obvious!!

    I have been working at Barnes-Jewish Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - able to perform and learn advance techniques in one department
     - provide good health insurance, dental, and vision
     - a lot of projects to volunteer for
     - parking can be free depending on the shift you work, 30% food discount
     - there are some attempts for employee appreciation - lab week, christmas gifts

    Cons

    - St. Louis MTs are paid 2% under the national average
     - Some people have worked here so long that they no longer like their job and can be difficult to
        work with
     - Management can be unresponsive
     - no room to move up, you either work the bench or you supervise
     - you only work in one department, so its hard to get other experiences unless you quit and apply to
        another department.
     - Every shift has it own rules regarding dress code, breaks, and weekend work.

    Advice to Management

    Make a comprehensive set of rules for employees and apply them to all shifts to make it fair. A rating system for individual management staff should be in place and remediating action should be apply to those staff that have poor ratings. This is fair since bench workers have an individual rating system.
