    I have been working at Clear Lake Regional Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Close to home, free parking. Leadership development is good. Friendly people and staff at the bedside want to be there.

    Cons

    High leadership turnover rate. Leadership support is marginal. Unrealistic expectations at times.

    Advice to Management

    Support and recognize leaders. Use more evidence based practice.

    I worked at Clear Lake Regional Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Unit I was at had very great teamwork; we all had each other's backs
    Tuition reimbursement at good value of $4000~ per year but you have to pay your tuition first before getting money
    - Will hire new grads that need their experience
    - CEO will sometimes visit, ask how you're doing (look at cons)

    Cons

    - OVERWORKED AND UNDERPAID. Our unit is mostly understaffed because the hospital will pull our own nurse aides to sit or tech on another floor when our floor is very high demand and high in acuity. HCA pays the lowest for their nurses in the Houston area.
    - We as nurses are forced to work in unsafe environments (constantly working over nurse:patient ratio) and management will say "nurse techs are not a commodity"
    - Nurse management will constantly ask you "what can we do to help you in your job?" When we always say--"Staff us adequately"--but will never follow up on that. Gives me a feeling they will keep asking you that so maybe you'll answer something different.
    - Management is very biased against their new nurses and will favour their older nurses in terms of PTO, off-days, work assignment
    - Not a lot of room for growth--this is a hospital, not an institution.
    - Case workers, managers etc care about spitting their patients out of the hospital as soon as they get in there.
    - We seem to be always understaffed when the CEO comes by around, so we let him know this... he sends us pizzas...

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to your staff. If you care about keeping your staff and not constantly having a high nurse turnover LISTEN and actually ACT. Staff will leave when they feel like their voices are not being heard.

    I have been working at Clear Lake Regional Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CLRMC will hire people fresh out of school, helping them gain experience. For the most part staff is very friendly and helpful. Professional growth is encouraged with training programs and tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    This facility generally pays less than other hospitals in Houston and surrounding areas. Don't waste time on certification/credentials that aren't required to get hired. If you do, (in my experience) it won't benefit you at all in terms of job title or pay.

    Pros

    Love working with my co-workers and patients and received compliments from the CNO

    Pay is lower than other hospitals. Bad manager and director, unfortunately they did not care about our concerns.

    Listen to our concerns, and understand life happens and your employees should be valued and care for. Remember we are the backbone of the company.
