    I worked at Baylor University Medical Center full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pros are we all worked together. We were more than a unit we were a family. Working for Baylor you have a chances to advance.

    Cons

    You always get the proper training, benefits were good. The companies values are, to make sure that our Patients get the most professional care while at Baylor, and the staff carried themselves in the same order.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always encourage your employees, take time to have round table discussion with them, concerning the changes within the company. Let them know they are appreciated, for this can go a long way.

    I worked at Baylor University Medical Center

    Pros

    Personal growth though learning to lead through stagnant leadership at administrative levels.
    Support from medical staff
    Committed co-workers

    Cons

    Hospital administration is resistant to new ideas and is not supportive of new technologies. This makes it difficult to fulfill your job if your responsibility is to develop new departments. It can be done because of medical staff support but persistence and patience is required.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pervasive passive aggressiveness is not the way to facilitate cutting edge medical care. Medical care is not a stagnant entity. It requires adjusting to new technology and research. When leaders in a new area are hired, please listen to their advice and expertise!

    I worked at Baylor University Medical Center full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Teaching hospital is a great place to learn all the in's and out's of healthcare. Most Physicians will take the time to teach you their trade. This is one of the best places for treatment of all illnesses and diseases.

    Cons

    There are a LOT of politics! There is little to no change in management on any level due to all of the "red tape", but most managers try their best. The work is hard and rewarding from a personal standing, but the pay is almost demeaning.

    Baylor wants and demands the best, but they are not willing to show that in your salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are many opportunities for new training and there is room to grow into different positions. You can start from one area and work your way up, but it will take time and connections.

    I have been working at Baylor University Medical Center full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    good money
    great bonuses
    great amount of overtime
    multiple call teams
    leadership opportunities

    Cons

    Horrible management
    Baylor way is the only way, regardless of the standards set by the government
    Perception of Baylor is that they don't pay well enough but actually they pay great
    Baylor is not the best hospital in the metroplex it is actually very much behind all the other facilities in the metroplex
    its kind of like working in a cult

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Weed out the management that have been there for a long time because they are doing Baylor a disservice. Baylor can be wayyyyy better if they stopped doing things the Baylor way and tried to catch up with the rest of the world. It is super dirty and unkept, Have you seen Parkland lately, on a bad day?
