I have been working at Baylor Health Care System full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

This hospital system has good benefits and pretty good pay. They also have good vacation time. The tuition remimbursement is great.

Cons

However, there is not much room for advancement and the company does not seem to be very supportive of career changes even though they offer tuition reimbursement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow employees to change career paths within the organization if they have chosen to go back to school and seek additional education.

    Baylor Scott and White health could have been a great place to wok. The complete disregard for software quality leaves a gaping hole that could lead to patient safety issues. Baylor is pushing the envelope of what can be done with EHR systems, but not in a good way. Their idea of quality control is a "good feeling that it works" nod from management. This is only going to work for as long as the FDA excludes EHR systems from MDDS law. Baylor needs to implement objective QA metrics to prevent regression and ensure patient safety. This can and should be done via the use of unit tests. Management pushes untested software to production under the premise that medicine is an anomaly to be excluded from all software best practices.

    I would not recommend this company to my enemies. I do not recommend putting family into their hospital systems that employ this absurd custom EHR implementation to display lab results which can impact patient safety. I pray that Baylor one day recognizes their own company Motto and cleans up their moral and ethical score card.

    I worked at Baylor Health Care System full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people were intelligent and fun work work with. The medical benefits are incredible. The pay was excellent.

    Cons

    The workload was enormous. Some problems would be shunted from team to team for weeks before a resolution would be found. Managers would actively block internal promotions/transfers because a person was too valuable to their team. They will work you to the bone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Salary does not equal slave labor.
