    Beautiful Buildings - do they always offer a good, solid career.

    Project Director (Current Employee)

    ProsFrequent positions, ( not all due to growth ), Patients are absolutely wonderful, brick and mortar nice

    Cons-Hemorrhaging most experienced physicians- over the last few years - many leaving
    -Lack of trust for many executive managers
    -Benefits have diminished greatly
    -Unsafe walk from -far away parking surface lots ( 2013 notices sent -employee's can't use their buses,once parked, MUST walk to /from car ( frequent auto pedestrian accidents/robberies )

    Advice to Senior Management-Difficult Management structures- employee without a voice- fear of reprisal
    -Physician managers - should have mandatory/ ongoing - management/HR education (prevention of HR legal issues)
    -Departments with frequent (<5 yr period) staff turnover rates of 40-50% (Any single position title) HR/Legal should require- Initiation of external - independent management consultant review and Report forwarded to President.

    Do not let the reputation FOOL you!

    Senior Secretary (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsBenefits are excellent.
    iDeal discounts. We get discounts on a lot of services from Cell Phones Providers to Houston Zoo Admission price
    Patients are usually treated with the best level of care.

    ConsPolitics! Politics! Politics!
    Management very cold hearted and have no compassion for employees.
    Parking is way too expensive.
    Low morale
    Brown nosers' haven - your skills and work ethic doesn't matter here.
    Some managers are OVER PAID and are completely clueless about the roles of the employees they "micro-manage"
    High turn over rate in some departments due to poor management and operational flaws.
    HR does very little to help employees against abuse, harrassment and bulllyinf from bosses.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease have compassion for your employees. I have never ever worked in an environment so hateful and cruel. Please pay more attention to the turnover rate in certain departments. That could be a red flag on how the department is being managed. Appreciate your good, hard working employees instead of giving top of the line priviledges to those who cater to your ego and bring you breakfast and lunch to get ahead instead of working for it. Learn the the jobs functions of your employees, managers should be able to cover anyone they manage in the event of an emergency or staffing crisis.
