    Pros

    Large Health System
    Many ares and other facilities across the metroplex to transfer to
    Benefits are pretty good

    Cons

    Dallas Main Campus
    Sub par internship training
    Voted best places to work by employees "anonymously" but survey "demographic" questions make it obvious who's is completing them and the answers affect annual reviews
    Floor performance affects personal raises
    HR turns a blind eye to work place threats and violence
    No consideration for employee loyalty/seen as disposable

    I worked at Methodist Health System - Dallas full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is decent. There are too many fake meetings where they SEEM TO CARE BUT THEY DON'T IN THE END.

    Cons

    Many problems with reverse racism in this company. If There are problems in your department HR does not care about it nor does management and typically management IS the problem. It's very sad when the medical field focus should be about the patients and managers make it about themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you aren't in it as a team find another career. It isn't about you.

    I have been working at Methodist Health System - Dallas full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hospital environment is small enough so that it is possible to have clinical input in most areas, but not so large as to be compartmentalized, as is the case with some large tertiary care hospitals.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancing, or breaking "out of the rut" have been limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not possible for me to know the quarter to quarter fiscal health of the company, but it seems like the corporate leadership does not have a clue what individual departments need, in terms of staffing, to even meet the minimum requirements of meeting the needs of patient care and implementation and maintenance of policies and procedureswhich are needed to comply with the various regulatory agencies. When employees leave, the positions are immediately "frozen," which disallows for keeping a full roster.

    Working at Methodist in the IS department is normally a slow pace for work and plenty of time to have long lunches..

    Pros

    We are all close in age (younger than 40) and all get along. Management is really good!

    Cons

    We work in the basement and it is really stuffy and gross. They can't regulate the air so some days it 30 degrees and others 90.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a better work environment for those in the office. Everyone is always getting sick and bringing it home to our kids.

    I have been working at Methodist Health System - Dallas full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Pay was very good for my position with options for bonuses.
    - My particular work area (& others I noticed) was laid back with no micro-managing from supervisors, only other employees.
    -Lots of benefit options. You can get very low cost health insurance and health care w/ lots of different services if you choose to use Methodist facilities.
    -My office also had flexible work hours and days off which made for a better work-life balance.
    -Positive mission and values of the company. Methodist has a cross on the logo and that definitely reflects the mission and values of the company, and that is what makes Methodist different from other hospitals.

    Cons

    -No company provided training at all. I was trained completely by my fellow coworkers, and inconsistently at that. Does not seem like a safe or smart business move considering this is HEALTHCARE.
    -No opportunities for advancement unless you can wait 10-15 years for someone to retire.
    -Very old fashioned, using outdated software and equipment. Healthcare today is cutting edge and this company is definitely behind the times.
    -Methodist spends little to no money on its employees, meaning that you will not get any new equipment until you absolutely have to have it. My office was using outdated computers that barely ran the software we used, & with tiny monitors and broken desks and office chairs.
    -There is no communication between upper management, supervisors, and employees. It seemed like no one knew what the rules and policies were until the right person did something wrong.
    -Lots of sticks in the mud. Employees who have worked there 10, 15, or 20+ years and are no longer productive employees, they just waiting for pay day.
    -As someone else mentioned, there is lots of soliciting from the company. They are always wanting you to donate this or contribute to that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Effective communication to all departments and employees is key.
    -Effective training programs establish a solid foundation and a safe and productive work environment.
    -Investing in your employees and equipment is essential in a technologically advancing health care industry, and could improve efficiency, profitability, and care delivery.

    Pros

    This company lost (2) Vice Presidents within 7 months. One died of medical issues and the other left the company due to medical issues. Too much stress. Very High turnover for small company.

    Cons

    Small company, with several older people in key positions. Company culture is straight out of 1950.
     New energy is not welcome. New ideas are not welcome. Proper protocol is not welcome. Misery loves company, beware, danger, do not enter. proceed to nearest EXIT! Very high turnover for small company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For New Vice President, follow your instincts and remove any personnel that cannot or will not look you in the eye, and except new ideas. Beware of anyone that is always complaining about other employees, because they are complaining about you to the Senior VP. Watch your back!
