I have been working at Memorial Hermann Healthcare full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Large player in Houston. Decent pay and benefits, with opportunities to move within. Strategic; always seeking ways to innovate, diversify, and capture larger market share.

Cons

Lots of "balls in the air." Ambitious, sometimes in too big a hurry. Somewhat paternalistic in terms of leadership style. Not particularly interested in soliciting true feedback from staff. Employee satisfaction survey is poorly designed and even more poorly implemented.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Solicit truth not canned responses from people too fearful to displease. Read what the Tao te Ching says about leaders.

    Current Employee - RN II in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Memorial Hermann Healthcare full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Paycheck. with limited expensive Healthcare benefits
    Coworkers h.elpful

    Cons

    Management doesn't get they make employees feel cheated, disrespected, intimidated, micro-managed, manipulated, over-worked, underpaid, etc...Managers will demand employes to go above and beyond the call of duty . Don't worry, you won't be recognized for actions above and beyond; Only the higher ups get that kind of satisfaction as they pat each other on the back and get their increases while implementing even more responsibility on you. On top of that, promotion is all inside as is a majority of the hiring process.
    UNLESS you are friend or family of management, you can FORGET
     -calling in sick (you'll be written up/fired..its best to bring your infectious illness to work..you probably got the illness from your coworkers);
    -applying for or using approved FMLA (you'll be written up for "something" then fired...its best to just bring your JP drain & staples -or- newborn to work..your coworkers understand this situation).
    -asking for specific day off (management will tell you "no staff to cover" then promptly punish you by cancelling your next 2 scheduled shifts to make sure you don't ever request a day off...its best to ask your coworkers to exchange shifts; they'll jump at the chance to make up for their cancelled shifts).
    -going to HR (HR protects their facility not the staff employee; you will be fired if you talk to HR...best to talk with your coworkers, coworkers want you to keep your job).
    Management knows information is power; so expect management to withhold information from staff...this has a two fold effect: staff = "dumb" & management = "smart "(its a win/win for management).
    Management will tell staff which political party to vote for, which church to attend and which volunteer functions to support...I thought these topics are a "no-no" but I'm not telling HR, I need my paycheck..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff employes keep Management salaries and bonuses high; therefore Management should see the value of current staff employes...it costs Memorial Hermann more $$ to find/train new staff than it does to keep current trained staff and treat them like they are valued staff,
