    Used to feel like family...

    (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsMemorial Hermann has some great leaders with big hearts. It has a fairly laid back feel that wants to foster inspiration and "wow" moments. I appreciate the respect I get from physicians.

    ConsDespite some great visionaries, there are several key players that preach a good sermon and 2 minted later those words don't apply to them; managers who are great and several who are defensive with poor communication skills; moreover can't seem to manage or make an "action plan" for the proverbial bad attitude employees that tend to sink a ship. Misappropriation of budgets is laughable- some service-lines buy nice clothes and lunches for their staff while others can't even buy much-needed education materials. We give so much to the community, but one of the floors I staff can't seem to get paper for the printer without raising an eyebrow. I used to love working here, now I just love what I do in an institution that has an okay job environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen, look, fine-tune your interviews to weed out the drama, address employee morale, and most importantly- balance out the work so a few of top people aren't always having to carry out 80% of the work which is driving burnout. It's hard to do all of that when 85% of management's time is tied up in meetings and e-mail distractions on their cell phones.

    Working In The Dark

    Registered Nurse (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsIn the beginning Memorial Hermann was about the people it serviced and its employees. I loved working there. For 5 of the 10 years I worked at Hermann I was happy. Memorial Hermann cared about the employee and their opinion

    ConsMemorial Hermann is now about the money and how many patients you can get signed up. It is upper management that have the upper hand. The employee have no say on on how things will go.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is about who you know and not about what you know.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Average, if benefits were better & matched system's size it would be awesome

    CT Technologist (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsHigher salary than other hospitals in the area. A lot of employee appreciation at the location I work at, though it's it like this everywhere in the system.

    ConsHorrible benefits compared to other hospitals in the area, especially considering they are the largest hospital system in Texas. Our insurance costs a lot & we still have a lot of out of picket costs, plus we can only go to Hermann facilities or doctors. Many employees don't want to be restricted like that & no other hospital system in the area has insurance that requires that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMatch PTO, holidays, insurance coverage, etc. to other similar hospitals in the area. That is the biggest complaint I hear from co-workers. We have horrible benefits for being such a large company with 22,000 employees. In the past we had an option of choosing a non-Memorial Hermann insurance plan (Aetna vs MHealth, which is Hermann's own plan). This made things a lot better because we were not restricted to only Hermann facilities & physicians.

    There is room for improvement.

    Clinical Staff (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsThere are hospitals all over the city; job stability; reasonable salaries and benefits.

    ConsFew opportunities to move up the ladder; health insurance applies exclusively to Memorial Hermann facilities and Memorial Hermann contracted physicians and providers; performance reviews have all but disappeared; no opportunities to negotiate salaries from one year to the next; upper executives and directors get all the perks; not sure how managers are selected. There are some very mediocre managers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in current employees to reduce high employee turnover; compensate for performance; create room for upward mobility within the company. Eliminate wasteful expenses in favor of employee salaries and benefits.

    Great organization for Clinical Professionals

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsEmployees have a real passion for healthcare and making improvements. The clinical team is great.

    ConsThe Talent Acquisition and Human Resource leadership has opportunity for improvement. There is no mentoring or development of the team and leadership is passive aggressive. I would say most professionals on both teams should be considered a flight risk.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease take a look at the leadership within Talent Acquisition and Human Resources and evaulate the excessive turnover of both teams. There needs to be more positive collaboration and team interaction.
