    Pros

    place where non-job related things can be done

    Cons

    everything (bad) you don't want to see in any organization - politics, favoritism, slandering, cheating, gossiping, under-the-table-dealing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    just outsource IT "within US". maybe u can keep call center/ tech support internally but everything else IT related can go away or replaced

    I worked at Harris Health System full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Allowed me to begin healthcare after four years of school. The group I worked with was very nice and they helped me with questions I had.

    Cons

    Too much politics and red tape. There was never any consistency with policy or procedure in the department or hospital. Pay was dismal equating to a slap in the face professionally. Other employees in the department spent their time browsing the internet and gossiping about the latest reality television shows rather than work. Training for certain functions was non existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-engineer your methods of conducting business with external and internal customers. Provide the latest training to personnel not out dated and obsolete procedures and technologies.
