    Employer exhaustion will cause more mistakes. Hire more healthcare team members or customize assignments to utilize assets to prevent fatigue

    I have been working at Houston Methodist full-time

    Pros

    Benefits: Great benefits and medical insurance.
    Compensation: average.
    Environment: great and helpful environment, mostly all good people.

    Cons

    Compensation is not in line with the other immediate competitors, but they offset that with good benefits.
    Depends on which department and entity you end up with, you could either be treated as royal or a step child. Some management is really good and they take care of their employees while others take care of themselves.

    Current Employee - Registered Nurse  in  Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Registered Nurse in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Houston Methodist full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very strong employee pride, treats employees fairly, many opportunities to advance, free gym for all employees, benefits are great. The medical care provided here is the best in the world, the doctors are wonderful. It is a fantastic, values driven, faith based organization that truly makes its employees feel cared about.

    Cons

    Working in the medical center has challenges and living inside the loop is expensive, extensive growth and moving forward can be challenging, lots of very tenured employees (20+ years) can be challenging in adapting to change. Many nurses go on to pursue advanced degrees and move up, the people you work with changes very frequently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to keep employees informed and in the loop, pay could be better for nurses given the status of the facility, in addition it would be nice to have more tuition reimbursement available given the focus on education.
