    The hospital is Close to my home so that cut my commute time down. Not driving in eush hour traffic is really good

    Harris health system does not pay enough for the best people compared to other hospitals in the greater Houston area. If your a new grad this is the places to start

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees more money. That way you can keep the good ones you have trained. That will also cut your training costs.

    No advise can be given that would change the way things have always been done so the least amount of advise you can give the better it is for everyone around.
