Current Employee - Constant Professional in Houston, TX

I have been working at Houston Methodist full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Centrally located, onsite lunch options including Starbucks, a few good people sprinkled throughout the organization.

Cons

There is no accountability for results or recognition for a job well done. Everything within the organization is political whether it makes good business sense or not. There is no real career ladder and some (not all) of management micro-manages times 1000.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create measurable metrics, acknowledge those who meet/exceeds expectations, allow the professionals you hired to evoke his/her expertise to take the organization into the current millennium. Technology and processes are too far behind. It means nothing to lead medicine if you are still using DOS based systems. Pay attention to the revolving door b/c it will continue and no one seems to care.

    Pay not as high as others, but excellent benefits. Slightly disorganized internal structure.

    Current Employee - MRI Technologist in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Houston Methodist full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Friendly staff, prestige, notoriety, excellent benefits. Could rethink pay structure. It is a magnet facility, which means that it is a competitive workforce, most of the employees hired here are the top of their class. The older staff did not face this stiff competition and tends to be burnt out, giving poorer quality care and lacking initiative.

    Cons

    Could rethink pay structure. Patient transportation system is awful, parking opportunities for employees are inconvenient and expensive. Things are so hectic from day-to-day, makes planning difficult. We are chronically understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within, it makes good business sense.

    Pros

    Great Benefits and great people.

    Aramark needs to find better people in management positions.

    Listen to your employees and do not conduct yourself in a dictatorship kind of way.
