    I worked at Methodist Healthcare System full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    In all my career I have never worked in such an awful environment. There were no pros as far as I am concerned. I couldn't wait to get out of the toxicity.

    Cons

    Terrible management that doesn't listen to its employees. Staff are allowed to bully their peers and management don't acknowledge there is a problem. It's a vicious, back stabbing environment and extremely unhealthy. To survive you have to be brutal and cut throat or you will drown.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen, be pro-active and follow through. It's a sad and ugly environment.

    I worked at Methodist Healthcare System full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    decent benefits, but the upper management in several departments at the corporate office and Methodist Main, all have a mindset that it's acceptable to treat employees like slaves - and HR looks the other way

    Cons

    there is ZERO paid holidays - other hospitals have them, why doesn't MHS? the system administrators care more about HCAPS and patient satisfaction ratings than employees satisfaction - are they stupid enough to think that those two things are not related?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management are a gang of bullies - open your eyes to how you treat people! This is not 1960 - you can grind up and spit people out until no one in this town wants to work for you.

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

    Pros

    Collegial environment in majority of the departments, flexible schedule offers great work life balance, family oriented, Passionate Staff that truly care about their patients, in an era of Hospital financial instability, Methodist Facilities offer a stable and financially secure environment. As with any company, there is always room for improvement, but leadership is dedicated to improving employee engagement and addressing concerns that impact the abilitity for employees to thrive and provide the support our patients deserve.

    Cons

    invest more in career development and career growth opportunities, incentivize and recognize top performers...would help improve department moral as well as encourage performance improvement.

    Pros

    You can transfer to other hospitals within San Antonio

    Cons

    Two words - Assistant Manager

    I am an experienced RN with many years of hospital nursing behind me and am used to different work environments. I've worked here for 1-2 years and am finally making the time to write reviews online warning future applicants about the PCU floor at Stone Oak Methodist in San Antonio.

    You should know that SOM hospital has only been open for 5 years so my guess is that the "green horn" managers/supervisors are left to "start up" this hospital.

    PCU/Telemetry has a high turnover rate of nurses because of the following four reasons -

    1. Extremely intense work environment
    2. Understaffed nurse aides for a 40-patient floor
    3. Our assistant nurse manager "unapproachable" as several nurses have put it.
    4. Morning huddle consists of verbal "beatings"

    75% of the day shift nurses are looking for work elsewhere, including myself now. Save yourself time and energy and don't bother applying to this floor!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you would ask the nurses on PCU how to increase morale and productivity on the floor, we have LOTS of ideas. We don't understand why you don't work harder to keep nurses on our floor. We're losing hundreds of thousands of dollars just in turnover rates! This is not hard to comprehend!

    Pros

    There not many, there are a lot of hospitals in the Methodist system so if you are willing to move around to more than one facility you have a lot of work options.

    Cons

    They stopped all pay raises, they are cutting benefits, the work conditions are horrible in most of the large hospitals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember your greatest asset is you work force if you continue treating them as your are you will not have much of a work force left soon.

    I worked at Methodist Healthcare System

    Pros

    It is a new hospital, so employees have a stronger influence on procedures and protocols

    Cons

    Management does not necessarily have the experience needed to handle setting up a new department. Scheduling employees was very poor and often resulted in uncovered shifts. There was no call schedule in place, so uncovered shifts resulted in employees getting last minute calls asking if they can cover shifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out the schedule and procedures and put them in writing. Employees would like to have a life outside of work, not constantly waiting for a phone call and then not being paid for on-call status.
