I have been working at Texas Department of State Health Services

Pros

Great people, meaningful work, a very needy and underserved patient population brings intrinsic value where extrinsic rewards aren't plentiful.

Cons

Uncertainty of the Texas budget cycle each biennium can keep tensions high and unfortunately, impacts turnover.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your employees are a huge investment. Take the time to recognize them for a job well done with genuine praise and with more frequency than quarterly awards for stellar performers. It is your every day hard-working employee who keeps your facility operating within budget and within the laws and regulations such as the Joint Commission and the CMS.
