    Pros

    good field to work in, many locations, informative mandatory classes, diversified culture,
    employees many in Houston

    Cons

    too many and poor supervisors and managers
    no support for the non-managerial employees
    too much work and not enough money for non-managerial employees
    too little work and too much money for supervisors and managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the reason most employees stay 10, 15, 20, 25 plus years is because they can't get a job anywhere else - it is not dedication!

    Former Employee - Middle IT Management in Houston, TX

    I worked at Harris Health System full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The years that I worked in the Harris County Hospital District (HCHD) IT department was very challenging and rewarding. HCHD's committment to serving the community, and the underserved therein, created the environment from which I reaped these personal rewards. Additionally, I feel that the District was a good employeer and I am thankful for the compensation and benefits received during my tenure.

    Cons

    As with most large corporations, the District is a microcosm of society. Their upper management ranges from excellent to less than desirable. Unfortunatelly, the IT upper management staff, in my opinion, ranks closer to the latter. Management by intimidation and fear often stymies honest dialogue and creativity. Honest disagreement with upper management often leads to open hostility and/or termination. I was personally able to accomplish most of my personal and work objectives within this environment. However, I sadly experienced the demise of many good and talented employees that found themselves on the wrong side of management or happened to be convenient sacrificial lambs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is recognized that many employee complaints are short of merit. However, District senior management should tune in to what is happening in their and other district environments and recognize those issues that deserve their attention . Listen to the employees, with an open mind, and facilitate open honest dialogue.
