    Beautiful hospital. Good place to be a patient.

    I have been working at Clear Lake Regional Medical Center

    Pros

    Good directors who mostly work very hard Staff generally support each other. Nursing workload is less than some hospitals. Great doctors. New Employee health clinic is great.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional top leadership. Has been for years. Getting worse. Pay is below other hospitals in the area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change in top leadership needed. They don't seem to like each other. Don't be so arrogant. Be a part of the team in order to lead the team. Higher pay rates needed.

    I have been working at Clear Lake Regional Medical Center full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The staff try to help each other,the corporate perks are very helpful if you are planning a trip or need to buy something and you don't want to pay full price

    Cons

    There are leaders in the organization that you may never even see, work life balance can be difficult with the hours per shift

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the staff have never seen you , they don't believe that you are available even if you say that you have an open door policy, take the time to introduce yourself, it may be a bit uncomfortable but if you establish a trust with your staff because they know you then you might find what some of the real issue your staff face are, surveys are just too biased as people don't trust them, so if your taking your info from them it will lead to conclusions that are off base. Take the time do your own surveys but do it on a personal level. You will find that your staff will trust you and you will build a trust with them and actually get to the real issues that they face.

    Pros

    Free parking. Cafeteria discount for employees. Generous tuition reimbursement program.

    Cons

    The pay is substandard. Lowest paying hospital in the region.
    Benefits could be better
    No shift differential for 3-7, and they are taking away bonus pay for working extra shifts.
    Short staffed at ALL TIMES!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show concern for your employees. Please please PLEASE consider raising people's pay. There will be competition and u will lose your employees.

    I have been working at Clear Lake Regional Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The insurance is pretty good and the corporate benefits available are great too.

    Cons

    The employees are extremely difficult at times. If you are lucky you will get people who like you, then you will keep your job.If your colleagues decide they don't appreciate you they will cross every boundary that they can to try to make you leave the job, if not they will try to find ways to have you expelled. They can be quite ruthless, on the other hand there are also colleagues that will do everything they can to pull for you to succeed, The con of this job is that there are more who would rather see you fail than to succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you should have an analysis done of people who were expelled, what they were expelled for and one thing that i think tends to get missed that should be analyzed is not what the complaints were but who they came from, and then look to see if there are trends for people who notoriously are used to remedialize people that end up ultimately getting fired. You might find some interesting correlations of that. I think the biggest issue that as management that you should try to consider is that there are good people who actually are relieved when they are no longer with the company as they believed in the companies mission statement but were dismayed to find quite the opposite ideas from their colleagues.

    Former Employee - Sterile Processing Tech in Clear Lake, TX

    I worked at Clear Lake Regional Medical Center full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    free parking, you can call in or be late whenever you wanted because they don't bother to keep up with anything and feel free to destroy any equipment you wanted because they won't write you up. It makes it hard to work there if you are a person who cares about your job and the patients

    Cons

    the pay way below national average and will not even consider a raise, no matter how much education you have or how much you work. Degrees and Certifications don't even matter to them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees fair wages, some people are paying back student loans and have children that would like a place to live and food on the table.

    Pros

    Nice facility.
    There are no pros to leadership.

    Cons

    Most of leadership team is not qualified for their positions. Leadership remains due to longevity and the "click" they are in. Most of the good leadership team and staff have left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to take a good look at operations and leadership at this facility

    Hospital has recently fired many clerical staff while implementing new order entry process for doctors

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Clear Lake Regional Medical Center part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Competitive but not best salaries. Coworkers are trustworthy and skilled. Adequate benefits.

    Cons

    Value focused on money saving to degree patient safety is compromised. Employees work short handed as Emergency Room is never shut down although hospital beds are full.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find other ways to save money besides cutting staff. Safety cannot be your goal if you know what's going on and continue same direction. New building doesn't mean anything if the care isn't there!

    Pros

    This is a nice facilty inside and out. Senior management is reasonable. There seems to be supplies available most of the time when needed.

    Cons

    lack of support from the staff is unsettling. Staffing can be short at times. Prepare to work through your lunch on a regular basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be present on the unit to ensure cohesiveness among the staff members. Benefits leave a little to be desired, but the employee clinic is a wonderful addition.
