    Pros

    What sets Houston Methodist apart from other organizations is the culture. The I CARE values of Integrity, Compassion, Accountability, Respect and Excellence permeate everything we do. We do strive to be the best - the best employer, the best patient care provider, the best patient experience provider - and sometimes that push for excellence is overwhelming to new people. But for those of us who thrive an setting and achieving high expectations, it is incredibly rewarding. I started as a non-management employee and have worked my way up through a few promotions. My salary has increased proportionate with the new challenges I have taken on and my benefits continue to grow with tenure. The benefits package is so rich for tenured employees it is hard to even consider making a change. Good pay, good benefits, a flexible schedule, opportunities for growth - what is not to love? Oh yeah - $millions in investment of extra PTO when we flooded in May - what other company does that? None that I know of!

    Cons

    If you want a job where you can just show up and exist, but not contribute with passion and expertise, you will not survive here. Parking in the med center is a known challenge not just for Methodist, and is a tradeoff you have to live with to work in the world's most innovative medical center. But parking is free, which is better than a lot of companies in the Houston area's condensed business centers.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your team as you want your boss to treat you. Take advantage of leadership development opportunities.

    I have been working at Houston Methodist full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Reputable company with high standards. The pay is fair with possible small increases after annual reviews. Also, there are many locations to choose from, all upholding high standards for the all staff and professionals. You will have access to plenty continuing education and there's encouraged for staff to improve themselves.

    Cons

    The pay is fair but not great. However, still comparable to other Houston area hospitals in my opinion. It seems more years of experience is often the requirement of the community hospitals but the medical center location is more lenient. As other hospitals, get ready for strict and monitored charting.

    Advice to Management

    Not much to say here because many of the managers I've encountered are wonderful, caring and helpful.

    Pros

    Great place to work! Compensation is commensurate with my level of expertise in this field. The directors and VP's ensure that you will be working in a fun environment with great benefits. I love the I CARE values and am very much a believer and how they align with my own. I especially like Integrity and Accountability.

    Cons

    There should be free parking options for employees.
