    I worked at St. Joseph's Health part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The team atmosphere is great. The office for IT staff is well kept.

    Cons

    Weak and inefficient management staff. Rampant favoritism in the department. Punishments and 'reviews' are handed out to those who choose not to bend to the will of the management team. This in and of itself is normal, but when the management runs the team so ineffectually it is hard to follow direct instruction. PM team is extremely elitist and has little to no knowledge about the day-to-day of the IT needs of the hospital.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at St. Joseph's Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If your interest in going to Grad School for nursing, speech, physical, or occupational therapy, or ABA and need a year or two of experiencing and making money prior this is a good place to work temporarily. But there is no room to grow from this position.

    Cons

    You will be dealing with very sick children, often when they are sick they are not sent home and you can easily be exposed to their illnesses. If your uncomfortable with being vomited on 5 times in 30 minutes. This is not the job for you.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at St. Joseph's Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The projects are plentiful and there are some very nice clinical people.

    Cons

    The IT PMO managerial staff lacks in leadership training & experience. Favoritism and elitism run ramped in the department. High turnover rate in the department (50+%). Quality employees are dismissed without warning or justification, while incompetency remains, leaving a depressing apprehensive atmosphere in the office. Increases are minimal if at all (1-2%) and not always delivered on time (nor retroactive). Bonuses, comp time, WFH, LTD – all refused. Team building and motivation comes in the form of inexpensive food (ice cream, cake, pizza). You have to pay for your meal at the department holiday party.
