    I have been working at Memorial Hermann Healthcare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly environment, competitive pay, lots of overtime, good staffing ratios, so many patients and high level of care so you learn a lot quickly,

    Cons

    Lots of little continuing education/classes/computer tests etc. but that is the same at all hospitals. The medical ceneter can be a bit stressful to commute to. You have to pay for parking if you work day shift or park far away and take the train

    Pros

    Large Healthcare organization, benefits are average to above average, like most hospitals it can be collaborative to a point.

    Cons

    Politics, positions filled without considering all potential employees (closed door on filling some positions), not as interested in education compared to St. Luke's or Methodist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow all positions to be filled competitively (Post ALL positions needing filling on website). Take education into consideration and the quality of education (example: Tier 1 university vs. others). Don't promote bullies.

    I have been working at Memorial Hermann Healthcare full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Really nice people to work with. No micromanaging. Able to do my job without much hassle from anybody. Night shift gets a good differential (around a $1 but its more for nurses and techs)

    Cons

    No cost of living adjustment and a very meager raise once a year. Also they are constantly asking employees to donate to the hospital. HR has also made it clear that for the lower level jobs you will not get a promotion unless you work there for at the very least 3 years no matter how often your manager puts you up for one. They also cap your overtime even though the help is desperately needed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more opportunities for advancement and encourage new employees to continue doing great by offering more praise and better compensation.

    Pros

    Pay is decent compared to some smaller places.

    Cons

    In the laboratory or if you are a nurse, be prepared to work hard. Just about every single Memorial ER location gets swamped. From the lab perspective, they ask you to do too much per person just to see if it's possible for you to do more work. They enjoy operating on a skeleton crew so be prepared. As a nurse, the customer service aspect of your job can be even more demanding than you might be used to. Certain locations have management issues but there it's not system wide. The hiring process is long and tedious. I've also seen older people that get paid more since they've been there awhile pressured to resign, this really put a damper on my enthusiasm for the company. Also, they will have you take surveys while simultaneously obstructing you as to how you should fill it out. If you don't do your self evaluation in time you will not get your full (already small) raise. Raises are from around 1.5 to 3% annually.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up negative individuals in management. Make your employee satisfaction surveys count for something. Give us real raises, and finally give us bonuses that aren't insulting.
