    Brackenridge Hospital: "Mission" is only based on profit (quite sad!)

    Jul 3, 2016 - Analyst in Warsaw, Masovia
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    For Breckenridge Hospital: It's hard to think many Pro's. The hospital has a false sense of security - don't get too comfortable in your role. The people appear to be somewhat friendly to your face - be careful how open & friendly you get though. Being in the new Dell Medical school building is the only thing to look forward to this company has faced in half a century.

    Cons

    For Breckenridge Hospital: - Salary & benefits are no where near competitive for the Austin market. People complain of this all the time on their 'Setonville' internal news portal all the time about this. There has been very little rise in wages & no added benefits even though the Austin has grown tremendously in cost of living. - The company tries to make everything about the 'mission'/'values,' but in the end, things are all about the bottom line ($) & productivity numbers. As someone who worked in & with administration, trust me, i know.. BEWARE! - Why are people that are non-clinical/non-patient interacting (i.e. administration) required to dress up every single day? Ever heard of casual Fridays? - The staff will make you seem that your work is in very 'team' based environment, but don't let this get to your head, since if you fall behind on anything.. everything will go ON YOU alone! Nobody to help pick up the pieces. - Most people have been put in positions and have been stuck there for years without any sort of advancement opportunities. - Everything is dictated by the parent company, Ascension. The hospital itself has no backbone. - A lot of employees are overworked and there is NO WORK-LIFE BALANCE. It doesn't matter what position you have, you'll get VERY little PTO (which is combined with sick leave, so if you ever fall ill, you'll have no time off for other things!). Even if you do end up building up PTO, it's nearly impossible to take it and almost looked frowned upon (this won't be expressed to you, but talked behind your back guaranteed).

    Not terrible, but beware

    Oct 21, 2015 - Anonymous Employee

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Flexibility with scheduling, success sharing, cost of living increase (though still significantly less than the increasing rate of housing prices in Austin), no micromanaging, genuinely does good work for the community.

    Cons

    Pay is significantly lower than national averages, too many leaders and not enough workers, constant threat of budget cuts and layoffs to the point where most people are constantly job searching, management often refuses to listen to ideas or make changes, Ascension takeover has been rocky with questionable ethics, many promotions based on favoritism instead of capabilities.

    Don't work here, everything has changed since Ascencion

    Mar 20, 2017 - Registered Nurse 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Coworkers were all friendly except for the ones brown-nosing to get ahead. Such as taking pictures of things and sending them to management.

    Cons

    Insurance changed, pay is low with no raises, cost of living or otherwise. Management is unfriendly, unhelpful and threatening. It has changed from Human care to a lot of unhappy people because a lot of the underlying staff (stockers, CA's, interpreters) have been laid off. Nurses are complaining of not being able to provide adequate care but are receiving no help. Many nurses who had been there 10+ years are leaving. The culture and the company's values have all gone downhill in lieu of money over people

    Starting salary criminally low for cost of living in Austin

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Provides care for all people even if uninsured

    Cons

    Low pay does not reflect cost of living in Austin; starting salary is higher in Uvalde, TX! Always understaffed, patient care suffers b/c you are always running from one room to the next, no time to really talk with patients or families; Never get to eat a proper lunch; Incompetent managers; Managers berate and use fear and negative reinforcement instead of inspiring employees to reach goals;
