I like the core values and mission at CHI, I believe in them. I like being part of a not-for-profit, faith based organization. It's not perfect, but the people make it a great place to work.

I've found that work-life-balance is not only respected, but it is encouraged and expected as the norm. I've been with the organization for several years and haven't encountered any exceptions to this attitude.

I can tell you that CHI has a commitment to work/life balance, including providing paid time off and 7 paid holidays, as well as hosting wellness and employee appreciation events, offering tuition reimbursement, and providing comprehensive health and welfare benefits. Exempt staff, whether at CHI or any other employer, are paid a salary for the role and completion of the work for which they are accountable, regardless of the number of hours it may take. While exempt employees in some CHI departments or roles may work >40 hours per week, CHI does not offer ‘comp time’ as a standard policy or practice. However, during periods of high volume or activity, managers can use their discretion for recognition and appreciation.

I've never found this to be the case, and I have worked in multiple roles at varying levels of responsibility. It's difficult to understand what you experienced and who gave you the impression you were lied to and cheated - a co-worker? middle management? executive management? All I can tell you is that I find CHI to be transparent and highly-ethical in their dealings with me.
