    It has been a rewarding experience.

    Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsLeaders inform you of changes. The hospital is making great strides to compete with other hospitals and bring in more customers.

    ConsNot much room for promotions. Compensation in comparison to other hospitals seems to be on the lower end.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    They do not care about their staff. No support.

    Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsLOTS of overtime available due to shortage of staff.

    ConsNo employee appreciation. Low morale. Administration has the attitude of "It's our way, or else!" No employee input. Changes are made quickly without input or any well thought-out processing. Low pay. Understaffed 90 percent of the time and workload increases daily. Whatever the max staffing ratio is, it's always pushed to the max and even then may go over the recommended ratio. Very high turnover. Unsafe.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider needs of your employees. Make decisions after trying them out and researching. Show appreciation to your employees. Valuable staff will be likely to stay. Reduce workload of staff to reasonably safe levels.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Perfect

    CRCST (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsThe process of having an interview to getting your physical and start date was fast

    ConsThe company they use, hire right, is a pain in the you know what. They ask you for a document concerning your work history, you give it to them, and they still ask for more. Get a new background checking agency.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust get rid of hire right!

    A very enlightening and unique experience!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    Prosthe hospital is very accessible, it's near where I live, and my co-workers are always ready to help and support the people around them.

    ConsThey do not pay as much as the other hospitals in the area. We are understaffed half of the time. They cater to the doctors too much to the point where their own staff who want to stay on or who have been there for a long time end up getting frustrated and end up leaving.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
