    Disappointing- completely undervalues their RN's

    Registered Nurse (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsBrilliant doctors
    Clean facility
    Evidence based policies and procedures
    Most current equipment
    High standard of care

    ConsNursing staff is very cut throat. No teamwork. It's a very "every man for himself" environment. It's very rare for nurses to advocate for each other. I've seen them talk down about each other to patient families. Almost every shift that I worked, there was an email being sent to management to complain about a coworker.

    Baylor severely understaffs their units and floats nurses to units where they are completely lost. (L&D to ICU, floor nurses taking care of step down/ICU status patients) Towards the end of my time there, the charge nurse was taking at least one patient every shift.

    I worked in the neuro ICU for 9 months and in the time that I was there about 5 nurses left and more were actively searching for jobs elsewhere.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue your nurses more and take care of them! Do more to boost your employees morale.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Consslow hiring process, worked in an old underdeveloped part of a hosptial Baylor took over, and then neglected it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagers and directors not in tune with employees needs

    Not bad, could be better

    Registered Nurse/NICU (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsCoworkers are amazing!
    True team work among coworkers.

    ConsPay is a little less than market.
    Management is somewhat out of touch with the reality of the clinical setting.
    Management is eliminating the TDA program.
    Not enough room for advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIn order to keep valued employees, ensure that pay is commensurate with experience. Get more on the floor exposure to help make better informed decisions.

    I enjoyed working at Baylor and learned a lot at " Big Baylor"

    RN II (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsBaylor has a great reputation for care and research in society and they have the record to prove it!

    Cons" I had a hard time finding my way around campus because of so many hospitals were foreign to me. However, many of the staff were very willing to assist with directions. "

    Advice to Senior Management" I have a suggestion. Please include acuity in the new matrix. Patient care should not only include the number of patient to nurse ratio. It should also include the type of patient ex: is the patient at a higher risk for complications than the average patient on that shift? Staff from each type of floor may be the best at assisting to create an appropriate criteria of increased acuity. I found having a patient on IV insulin therapy and one on IV heparin should count as a higher acuity patient/ nurse ratio than an average patient/ nurse ratio." Please take a moment to consider this. Thank you. "

    Baylor is great as a whole. The unit I was on specifically was just overstaffed.

    Registered Nurse (Former Employee)
    Irving, TX

    ProsGood reputation, great starting point for grad RNs, fantastic benefits. Very good internship program for new grads. Lots of facilities to work at.

    ConsPTO accrual could be better, work environment varies a LOT between floors (not just pt type), pay raise dependent on HCAHPS for unit/hospital as a whole along with personal performance. If your unit is overstaffed, there's a good chance you won't get enough hours for the week.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't over-hire because you think some of us won't stick around. Develop a system for who to put on call besides "just pick someone".

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
