I wonder where this company is going. What do you think? I don’t see that leadership has any good plan. Unfortunately.
They hired lots of freshers at Ascension. They can't do a conversion between time zones.
Hear a lot about Eddie & Jerry and the whole studio project. Have yet to see anything relevant at the ground level from this expensive pet project. The execs pat themselves on the back about it, but hasnt the studio just been an expensive toy with... — read more
I’m leaving soon, but I’d love to hear sometime in the future that Ascension hasn’t reported massive losses. Will this ever happen?
The outsourcing was Eddie and the Board. They think IT is too expensive, and Eddie thinks he knows what he is doing because MBA mmmKay? You could tell Eddie was sent in over Gerry's head to 'transform' IT with 'innovation', i.e. outsource to the... — read more
Apparently Gagan Singh has been named Ascension's new Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer of Ascension. Anyone know anything about him? https://ascension.org/About/leadership/Executives/Gagan-Singh
No bitterness, no malice. Just the facts, man.
I like to visit this forum sometimes, even though I left a few months ago. At one point I regretted leaving because it was a big change in my new company, but now I would never come back here. Is it really true that Ascension is planning to hire... — read more
I heard that HCL is implementing a Remote Desktop Support Team or a Level 2 Team to handle software installs and other issues that can be fixed remotely in theory. Didn't Ascension try this a couple years ago and it failed with in house Field Service... — read more
Does anyone know when the HCL contract expires?
Anyone else in the Peloton Clique leave for 'other opportunities'?
Some mention upcoming layoffs, but I really don’t see who is left to be cut.
Did anyone make the mistake of taking a job with the extended partners?
Any kind of a loss is usually met with cuts because the leadership knows that's the easiest way to get the numbers up once again. It's lazy and unimaginative, but it's what's going to happen. Sadly, those who do the most work will be shown the door... — read more
I don't see that anything could improve here soon. Is anyone feeling any optimism about this place?
"HCL's contract is being terminated."
May 2, 2022 St. Louis-based Ascension reported higher expenses in the three months ended March 31 and ended the quarter with a loss, according to financial documents filed April 29. The 143-hospital system reported operating revenue of $6.69... — read more
How are things going?
When people say I should always be prepared for layoffs, how exactly should I be prepared? If you are talking about mental preparation - no matter how mentally prepared someone is to hear that their name is on the layoff list, it will not be... — read more
Not trying to spread panic, just checking to see if anyone happens to have any insight when the next round of layoffs might happen. I'm trying my best to get out of here before Ascension starts making new cuts again. Trying to survive layoffs is no... — read more
I wasn’t at all surprised by the rumors of layoffs because leadership doesn't know what it's doing for some time now. I'll do my best to leave before the cuts start. This company is already missing a lot of people and it is very difficult to work... — read more
Culling anyone with more than 3.5 or 4 years of experience?
The job market is good. If I'm laid off, that in combination with severance should make the whole experience not as bad as it usually would. Plus, I'm getting tired of having to deal with a bully of a manager so getting cut might end up being a good... — read more
Layoffs coming summer
It may sound strange that productivity is not important to this company. However, when I take into consideration how they treat employees, that they do not care about their happiness at all, then the only thing I can conclude is that they do not... — read more
'There’s rumors going around that senior team is going to be let go. TechM and HCL are not performing but I have not heard of them rebidding' "That senior team" meaning on the MSP side or the Ascension side? The SDM team's senior leadership? — read more
Close, but it's worse than a layoff. MSPs aren't doing nearly as well as Sr Leadership thought. So instead of a layoff, they are going to get rid of one SME and re-bid it. So glad I left when I did. Can anyone confirm that this is true?
Any MSP on here hearing that they’re about to do layoffs on state workers?
It's awful what's going on in this company. Do they really think it could be a good idea to replace someone with a great skillset with an below-average employee who is not even motivated to do his new job? My personal opinion is that if they... — read more
To many directors with little to no hands on experience will not be able to fix the mess. If a company shows no care or concern towards it's employees then why should employees care about the organization. My thoughts exactly. Obviously, this... — read more
Ascension once again dropped the ball and did not foresee the enormous amount of volume before taking on a task which resulted in employees leaving and thousands of patients and associates without their medications The lack of due diligence and... — read more

LOL was lounging too mhch
If I somehow knew what I needed to do in order to become a layoff target and get paid to leave, I would do it. I will definitely leave, but I would prefer to get a package as well. I don't know if the right way to get on the layoff list is to... — read more
Are we centered yet? Let's center ourselves as we leverage the collaborative synergy of G-Suites. We ride as one!
I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my chest.
Please say it isn't so, reductions to the relationship and demand team..
