    I have been working at Houston Methodist full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    * I CARE culture that is visible throughout the organization (multi-million dollar employee assistance fund set-up after Hurricane Harvey to help employees who suffered damages from the storm; everyone received a "whole" paycheck for the week of the storm whether they were able to make it to work or not; those who did make it to work received $100 bonus for each day during the worst of the storm; counseling and support for those impacted by the storm; opportunities to volunteer in the community on an annual basis while being paid to do so)
    * Excellent benefits (DCP with min. of 3% of salary deposited annually plus 2% match on 403b; great medical/dental/vision; quarterly pt. satisfaction perf. bonuses plus other occasional bonuses; generous PTO; robust Wellness program)

    Cons

    Large organization but department/division/entity cohesiveness helps make it still feel like a family

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key! Dr. Boom does a great job of communicating honestly and frequently to the organization. The communication during Hurricane Harvey was very helpful and kept all informed throughout the disaster.
