    I worked at CHRISTUS Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Mission is extremely important. Pay and benefits fairly good. Facilities very nice and nothing is spared to make upper employees comfortable.

    Cons

    Not a good atmosphere for creative individuals due to cumbersome approval process. Some senior management actually seem to block advancement. Culture is defined one way but actually practiced another. Since it is a Catholic organization devoted to follow teachings of Jesus Christ, it would be more helpful for management to take a cue from the sisters who founded the organization and treat all employees with respect and value individual differences.

    Advice to Management

    Welcome new ideas and streamline upper echelon, eliminating unnecessary hierarchy, so funding goes where it's supposed to go.

    I have been working at CHRISTUS Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some colleagues are top notch -- but they're the ones who are leaving; Mission used to be important

    Cons

    Very poor decision-making by senior executives
    Focus is on short-term and not long-term
    Board unaware/closing eyes to mismanagement
    "Consolidation"' to Irving really a downsizing without any strategic planning as to who is needed
    Most experienced associates leaving
    Less than 30% of all corporate associates employed at time of announcement moving to Irving
    No planning for loss of key associates
    No retention bonuses paid to smooth transition
    Extremely poor communication from senior executives to the associates -- tout transparency while they "circle the wagons"

    Advice to Management

    Live the mission to which you were entrusted. At this rate, you are running this company into the ground.
