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

Pros

Good work/life balance.

Great people to work with.

Lower-end managers care and do their best to help employees get their jobs done.

Reasonably good paid time off.

Fairly easy to get resources/equipment when needed.

Cons

Far too many meetings and bureaucracy. Change management is important and must be accurate, but it should not take two weeks to a month of planning to install a server or plan a power outage.

Management unwilling to commit to decisions. Getting an answer from anyone in the chain of command takes weeks.

Upper management does not trust its employees to do their jobs, stringent work from home rules, hiring consultants constantly instead of listening to employees, trying to apply blanket rules to a diverse set of businesses.

Upper management does not understand technology and infrastructure, it's seen as a cost center rather than a productivity multiplier.

Poor salary and benefits, little chance for advancement.

Inability to budget long-term, even a short a time period as a year seems to be beyond management's ability.

Company is outsourcing jobs to India.

Advice to Management

Outsourcing departments means you will lose your institutional expertise. If an employee does not work for your company, they will have no investment in it and give less than their all to their work. Your talented people are leaving rather than letting you treat them even more poorly than before.

Company values are for everyone.

Learn and understand what you're managing, listen to your experts that work for you. Trust your employees, they want the company to succeed as much as you do!

Bureaucracy is choking productivity.

    I have been working at Catholic Health Initiatives full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, core values. CHI has lots going on in I.T. so it feels very secure.

    Cons

    HR is, in a word, peculiar. There are strange rules about salary increases and promotions. Any type of HR process takes an incredible amount of time -- getting hired, being promoted, applying for and moving to a new position, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the HR chaos. Discard the rules that inhibit paying market salaries or CHI will simply be a training organization and the fruits of that training will walk out the door with your expertise, to be paid equitably.

    Pros

    longevity they seem to work with employees to keep the talent. But now want to outsource everyone.

    Cons

    Outsourcing all of IT to India and who knows where.

    Advice to Management

    I dont have anything good to say at this time
