    They don't care about their people.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Irving, TX

    ProsFacilities are nice and there is some flexibility with work schedules in certain departments.

    ConsBad or no leadership. Zero transparency. Employees are consistently taken advantage of or overlooked altogether.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your people. Give them the tools to succeed. Quit expecting everything while giving nothing.

    A great company

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Irving, TX

    ProsCHRISTUS truly lives up to its mission and is continually working to improve. All companies have challenges and the issues facing health care -- particularly a company that cares for the poor -- are very challenging. They have had to make some unpopular decisions, but I believe they do so carefully and in keeping with values

    ConsIt is a challenging time in health care right now so there will likely be more changes -- but that would be true for most companies.

    Advice to Senior Managementcontinue to remember why you do what you do; stay true to the mission and carry on!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Honorable mission, but focus and leadership is out of balance.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMission, not for profit care of those most in need. Compensation and benefits overall good. Many high quality and devoted care givers.

    ConsExtreme focus on finance at the expense of clinical quality. Neglecting domestic operations at the expense of international. Leadership seems short term focused and averse to risking investment in innovation for the future.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease remember the sole reason for CHRISTUS' existence is to care for those in need and to do so in a high quality, safe manner. Margin is critical but if it comes at the expense of mission, disaster will follow.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    CHRISTUS Corporate

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Irving, TX

    ProsThe best reason for working at CHRISTUS is the people. There is such a diverse group of people striving to make the workplace better for everyone.

    ConsThe challenges are some department leaderships are not willing to listen to new ideas or implement them. We will continue it as we have always done until that changes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere needs to be a better environment and more trust given to the employees. Most of them want to give you their best work but not trusting them is hampering that ability.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Learning Experience, but no opportunities to move up.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros-Great coworkers.
    -Flexible Hours.
    -Good Benefits.
    -Great technology available to Hospitals and Corporate staff.

    Cons-Poor pay compared to other hospital systems.
    -Will layoff employees in a second to meet bottom line (I was not laid off, but many of my coworkers were).
    -Upper management at Corporate is clueless.
    -Lack of communication between Corporate and regions.
    -Cronyism at Corporate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter communication with the Regions because they are the ones that make the money to pay your salaries. Increase pay to match other hospital systems or your best and brightest will leave just like they left when the Irving relocation happened. Hire competent managers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
