Your satisfaction WILL depend on who you report to...
Project Manager (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – July 25, 2018
I spent 10 years with BJC and loved it for the most part because I was on a team of amazing people - including my direct management (Group Manager and Director).
That all came to an end on 7/11/18 when I received a call from the new IT VP informing me that my services were no longer needed. This came over a phone call, which was unusual, and my Group Manager wasn't even aware that this large layoff (113 people, I believe) included two members from his team.
I could go on more about my situation, but here's the bottom line. I would go back to BJC IT, but only after both the new CIO and VP have made their cuts, collected their bonus' and have moved on.
Unfortunately, it's clear to myself, and those that remain, that these guys were brought in to clean house. They state that they want to support systems that care for patients, but their actions show the financials are significantly more important at this time.
I would encourage anyone to consider BJC, but do so with the understanding that there are some leadership-related issues at this time. Good luck.
PS: Human Resources is NOT your friend. Beware that they will try to make you feel as if they are there to help you, but that is not true. Watch yourself with them.
Everything - IF you are on the right team.
Current IT leadership shows no regard to patient care
