    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?

    Pros

    Large company with the ability to move between departments somewhat easily and provides tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    There is VERY high turnover in employees at BUMC. There is preferential treatment in nearly every department I have seen. HR actively protects management and is not an advocate for employees. Directors do whatever they need to do to get a bonus while employees work hard and are punished for getting any OT or minor infractions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, think about the people in your department instead of your yearly bonus, avoid preferential treatment and get better HR representatives.

    I worked at Baylor University Medical Center full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Nursing 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 ManagementAdvice

    Value your nurses more and take care of them! Do more to boost your employees morale.
