    I have been working at Houston Methodist full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Prestige Seem to care about employees Give quarterly bonus

    Cons

    1. When injured on the job, will find every reason not to take responsibility 2. Rather than adequately staff units with fully employed personnel, or have a float pool for times of unplanned shortages, nursing staff are floated to any, an every unit in the hospital, to do any and every job, including PCAs and unit secretaries. Like, what does a NICU nurse know about handling the workload of a medsurg PCA? But you are floated all the same, to units where you aren’t appreciated. It would be okay if it was once in a while, but every 2 weeks, to the point where we don’t even want to come to work anymore. Also, when you are on call, you are on call for the whole hospital (not just your unit), so you can be called in at anytime to go be a sitter for a. newly arrived patient ,for example, at ungodly hours of day or night. This does nothing for morale, and is the reason many of us have/ are planning to exit.

    I worked at Houston Methodist full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    People you work with are nice and professional. Hospital seems to care about employees. Bonuses for hand hygiene.

    Cons

    Hospital culture seems to be kind of cult like. Sometimes patients get left behind. For example ER MDs only have to see a certain number of patients during their shift so if a patient comes in at end of their quota with a long tedious work up the doctor will put them off until relief comes in. Most of the time it’s not during an emergency but I’ve seen it during times in which the patient may have cauda equina and that is a medical emergency that can have serious implications on a patient’s ability to void long term. It’s not as serious as a heart attack or stroke but still has long lasting effects on the patient if not dealt with quickly. Methodist also has a special program for big donors so they treat some people better than others in medical care, which is definitely not right. They even have special customer service individuals that meet with these high paying donors during their stay and are alerted to this fact when they enter the hospital which seems like it may be a violation of HIPA. Management doesn’t understand mandatory overtime laws in Texas and hold over against their will with meetings after their shift but before report can be given.

    I have been working at Houston Methodist part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Skip pre-screening in regards to graduate nurse interviews, can speak with coordinator and possibly choose which unit you would like to interview at

    Cons

    Someone you don’t always get the unit you wished to be an intern on, just learn as much as you can and make the best of it!! Sometimes the leadership of the unit have gotten upset with students for not specifically wanting to work on that unit after graduation.

    I have been working at Houston Methodist full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great patient centric culture, camaraderie among peers , front line managers run the extra mile and live the core values

    Cons

    Senior Leaders at this location do not care about people. For Senior leaders everything is about looking good, there is lack of genuine recognition about the employee’s needs and feelings. Our front line managers feel prosecuted, we feel prosecuted, there is a lot of fear and anxiety, Senior leaders they are using COVID volumes as a excuse, and it is about their egocentric style not about the virus. If you want a promotion you have to be member of the cool kids club.
