    I worked at Houston Methodist

    Pros

    Methodist centers itself on values. It's in the heart of the medical center in Houston where cost of living is low.

    Cons

    The Methodist Hospital can be competitive because the hospital is very high profile. Medicine has it's ups and downs no matter where you work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Methodist hospital was a wonderful place to work. I am so thrilled for Marc Boom to be taking over for Ron Girotto. I truly believe he will make wonderful things happen for the hospital.

    I worked at Houston Methodist

    Pros

    Good benefits and overall orientation to the hospital environment. Methodist does really care about serving the patient and guests in a superior manner.

    Cons

    An incomplete job description caused a devastating life experience.

    I was terminated after working there 6 weeks because I was unable to perform job duties that were never listed on the job description. I resigned from another position with a company where I had full time employment and benefits and had worked for 18 months.
    I went to work for Methodist only to be unceremoniously terminated because I did not possess skills that were not in the job description I signed when I signed my offer letter. Management could have worked with me in terms of another position in the institution or trained me. I have excellent experience for the position and a college degree.
    I should have known better because there had been a great deal of turnover in this department. I was not given any severance, extended medical benefits or notice.

    After receiving the news I was told to call an HR representative. No HR representative was present when I was terminated. After leaving several messages for HR to return my call, no one has ever returned my call. Management seemed most interested in having me sign a confidentiality agreement.

    I would suggest if you are considering employment with Methodist that you fully investigate your
    job duties and how much turnover there has been in the position previously. Ask the interviewer
    to explain why the changes occurred. Then ask to interview with another manager in the department to get a complete picture.
    I have worked for a top 100 company before (my previous employer) and Methodist Hospital Houston is not a top 100 company to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If there is a great deal of turnover in a department it might be due to the manager and not necessarily the employees. The manager is the common denominator in the situation not the employee.

     Correct job descriptions are a basic requirement of running a good company or institution.
     HR should investigate departments with a revolving door syndrome.
