    I have been working at Houston Methodist full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture for the most part. However, it's a little fake and over the top at times.

    Cons

    Don't expect to get paid what your worth unless you're management, a nurse or a doctor. Pay is not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Retool the pay structure to allow for better pay for those that receive great promotions from within.
