    I worked at Centerpoint Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Committed nurses and physicians, corporate discounts, slightly above average health and life benefits, room for advancement.

    Cons

    Non clinical staff are very underpaid and underappreciated. From front desk staff, environment services, transportation, and security officers. Administration has no concern for the average worker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Competitive pay and fair cost of living raises.

    I worked at Centerpoint Medical Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits were reasonable, Hospital seemed to be always looking for more ways to improve.

    Cons

    Management did not listen to employees concerns that much. Employees were afraid of complaining too much for fear of losing their jobs. HR did not seem that interested really trying to help an employee with problems in their department. Management was in a disarray at times. Did not support staff. concerns or ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so quick to suspend or fire employees who have been great employees when a problem comes up!! Listen carefully to their side of a problem before making a final decision about firing them.

    I worked at Centerpoint Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Newer hospital, always striving to improve patient care. I loved what I did and took pride in working with patients.

    Cons

    Had a corporate wide layoff, reduction in force about 3 years ago. I feel it was handled in a hostile manner. I've been laid off before but never treated as bad as I was treated. I was hired back about 4 months later but with no benefits. I will never work for an HCA hospital again. Their payscale is lower than most industry standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As long as HCA is involved, I feel sympathy for managers.

    I have been working at Centerpoint Medical Center

    Pros

    Great work for a student, because job performance standards are low for employees. Fun atmosphere and a lot of time to visit with fellow employees.

    Cons

    A lot of politics and favoritism goes on, along with unethical medical practices. I am not making these statements because I didn't get a promotion, I didn't want to advance at this facility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the complaints about negligent patient care from the employees that make the complaints and follow up on them.

    I worked at Centerpoint Medical Center

    Pros

    Nice people - for the most part, the people that I worked with were kind and helped out. Helping others - in this job you get to help people who are sick or in the hospital for some reason. It is very satisfying at the end of the day when you do something like this.

    Cons

    Poorly compensated - I did not get paid much but it was a summer job so I didn't really expect much. Other employees complained of their pay though. Also, there is somewhat of a caste system in hospitals. Doctors treat nurses crappy, nurses treat their secretaries crappy, and the secretaries treat the patient escorts crappy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All in all they are doing their jobs. Some people were unsatisfied with their jobs there, but that is common everywhere.

    Disappointing most of the time.

    I have been working at Centerpoint Medical Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The ER nursing staff I work with is nice and ease to get along with. My work group is great and I enjoy my friends that I have made here. The immediate supervisor will work with you to balance work and family. You are never bored. The pace is busy.

    Cons

    Management does not value it's employees. There are doctors treat my department with disrespect and like we do not know our jobs. There is a lot of nurse turnover in many departments.
