Pros

Before the current CEO, D.P., took office.

Cons

This place has gradually gone downhill during the times I have been in and out of this company. Things like Facilities and IT used to be in house, but Facilities for all hospitals is now part of a for-profit company, which miraculously is associated by SJH (most, if not all were previous SJH employees). IT was at one point Dell, then Blue Mountain. Blue Mountain now re-branded to DayTu (sp). Again, another for profit company. Now SJH is affiliated with Hoag Hospital ("affiliated" sounds better so it doesn't make SJH look like a for profit company). I think the hospitals would run sooo much better WITHOUT the corporate/system office. You have business people running technology projects without understanding the technological impacts, project managers/program managers/managers/directors who shouldn't even have these titles. Disaster Recovery? Nope, crappy.

Now that they moved to Irvine, if only patients can see where their money went to -- game room, new furniture, etc. **sigh** worst of all, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange know that this is going on, but unfortunately there are very few active Sisters that can voice their opinions with making a great impact/change to decisions made.

Someone/some governing body needs to do a financial audit on this company too. Trust me.

Advice to Management

Keep looking pretty with your 6-figure salaries and bonuses.

    Pros

    Decent health benefits, good perks for working while going to school.

    There is no opportunity to advance. Despite having a bachelor's degree and several years of experience on the job, unless you're degree is medical forget it.

    I worked at St. Joseph Health System full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you are desperate for a job, and you can hide from directors and execs - you can work here for a little while.

    Cons

    Beware Contractors.....If you are visible to directors, vps, cio - then get ready to be blamed for everything - even if it is good, you will be blamed for something, so mgt looks great. They change their mind by the hour - accuse you of not knowing they changed their mind (as if you are a mind reader)....and watch out - they will say things and deny it minutes later.

    They set you up to fail.....tell you there is $budget and resources - when there are neither !

    The management is all new - have no clue how to be managers - they just bark at you and boss you around and call you stupid idiots behind closed doors.

    I would never recommend a friend to work here - their goal seems to be to treat you like an idiot, tell you to just obey their commands, then criticize you for not being a self-starter and "just do it" person. If you "just do it" - they will threaten you with terminiation....and tell you to just do what they say!

    It's hard to believe that Catholic Nuns influence this place......the evil leadership does anyting to look good, and you will be the sacrificial lamb to make them look this way !

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with Dignity and Respect that you tell everyone to do that works for you. Enable your people to think, not just sit there waiting to be told what to do. And stop blaming them for sitting there - becuase you threaten and punish them if they do try to think.

    Go get training how to be a manager - you don't have a clue. Barking orders to professionals would make Druker roll over in his grave.
