    Pros

    Friendly environment, work-life balance is valued, good benefits package, opportunity for growth, overall a great place to work. Great facility and location!

    The weather in Illinois is just plain hard to endure. I believe if they were located in a warmer state, I would never have left that organization.

    Pros

    Great organization to be a part of. The Joint Commission does some amazing work. Enjoy the work life balance, great benefits, managers care about you and your career. The company is doing more and more to offer latest technology enhancements and resources.

    Cons

    Work can get excessive at times, but completely rewarding. Many technology upgrades going on at the same time make it difficult to learn all the new systems. Very glad to see this is happening, but could benefit from better coordination of these projects

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to staff and keep up with technology enhancements. Try to coordinate projects. Prioritize and communicate improvements.

    Pros

    good work-life balance, good benefits, flexible work schedule and telecommuting, collaborative and healthy work environment. Management strives to keep employees happy and reward effort and performance, although company policies surrounding career progression and compensation seem to be constrictive and dated.

    Cons

    Not many opportunities for career progression; pay not necessarily driven by performance; slow salary progression; changes is slow.

    Advice to Management

    Better retention policies(including career opportunities and quicker salary progression) for high-performing employees and to attract talent are desperately needed.

    Pros

    Good work, great benefits, no regrets about choosing this place of employment

    Cons

    This organization is slow to change. Too many people have a "vote" so change does not happen as quickly as it should.

    Advice to Management

    We spend too much time asking staff what they want...and then not doing it if it conflicts with priorities. Ask staff once, make decisions, and move on.
