I worked at Texas Medical Center full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Pay and use to be the benefits

Cons

Managers wondering why some employees make debating they are overpaid, the past managers were nice, let people know things, up and coming events, future plans and investments

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have your employees state what is needed in the company and how to make it more comfortable without people wondering if they are going to have a job each November, it should be noted

    Pros

    OK pay and benefits, was near my house and the actual workday was a breeze.

    Cons

    TMC preaches about policies and procedures but no one really follows or cares to enforce either. Safety, cost savings and quality are supposedly HUGE concerns to the company, but less of an actual mindset and more-so a neat things to talk about in meetings. Every project is value engineered to work for the short term. I guess it's a way to ensure future work or to just get by until it's someone else's problem. OSHA and safety requirements are simply theories and burdens. More time is spent getting around policies than simply following them. Budgets are just imaginary $$$$$ in imaginary buckets. TMC is a private non-profit organization that collects "annual assessments" (essentially HOA fees) from the 50+ member institutions within our campus. When we run out of said buckets of money we then try to strong arm our member institutions to foot the bill.

    The younger or newer employees (with these apparently irrelevant things called college degrees) who haven't been with the company their entire life are deemed outcasts. The good old boys and girls that started their careers at TMC as admins or maintenance guys rule the roost. If you don't "drink the kool-aid" you get "re-organized". There are easily 20 Vice Presidents that spend their entire day in meetings rather than managing their actual staff. Of those said 20 VP's half have college degrees that they attained online. For a company with less than 200 employees the number of Managers, Directors, or VP's is just excessive, especially when the maintenance department makes up roughly half the work force. There are literally departments that have 1 or two people in them...typically with just a VP or director and an admin.

    Zumba classes, healthy living seminars, weekly birthday & anniversary cake parties, and promises of change are doled out in turn when the natives get restless, while upper management covers their backsides to fight off the likes of intimidation, workplace bullying, malintent, and race discrimination (see Kool-aid mentioned above). Cold, calculated plans of attack are put in place when they feel someone is about to expose their dilapidated and outdated management strategies. Speaking your mind is strictly forbidden and retaliatory headcount reductions or reorganization, or workforce optimization, or whatever they call it next are swiftly carried out. Glazed, painted over and craftily delivered presentations to employees about why they should be grateful to be working at such a great company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pretending to be something you aren't and know your role. You are the landlord of the largest medical center in the world. You are simply responsible for the maintenance and management of the land and any facilities that may be on it. You need to focus on treating your tenants better and get better at supporting them.

    I worked at Texas Medical Center

    Pros

    They hire anyone. They hire a lot of externs. They have many locations in San Antonio. The hiring process is fast.

    Cons

    They offer no flexibility in schedules. They hire no part time employees. All clinics appear to have 1st shift treated better than 2nd shift. 2nd shift always works late and never gets out at 11:30pm. The clinics close at 11pm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen and treat all shifts the same. Allow those who deserve promotions to get them don't just hand them out to people who are idiots and incompetent.
