    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.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. More family like here. Seems like Everyone loves working here. Benefits are some of the best and bonuses are great.

    Cons

    Pay could be better all around for a hospital system this big.
    PTO selling should be better managed why give me the option to sell for 100% but you won’t pay out until May of the following year?

    I have been working at Houston Methodist full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The only pro is a lot of people who work here are kind hearted and awesome employees. However, I think Houston Methodist takes advantage of their kind hearted nature.

    Cons

    - Insurance. RIDICULOUS! They just changed our insurance to one of the worst in the nation via a self funded UMR organization. Our dental went from the highly regarded met life to Delta. We have to pay 10% of our costs ON TOP of our biweekly costs, deductible, etc. This IS NOT in line with other hospitals. MD Anderson pays 0% biweekly, and their insurance is much better! We are seriously becoming the laughing stock of the med center by nurses. Most intelligent nurses and staff will not work at Methodist. That is why they are constantly having career fairs.
    - Low pay. Again, laughing stock of the medical center. Everyone is raising wages right now, even Walmart, but Methodist still lags behind. No weekend shift diff either when almost all medical hospitals have weekend shift diff.
    -No room for growth. Management never leaves because they make bank money, because they started back when Methodist was under another CEO who gave really good raises. No room for growth at all.
    - Constant construction and expanding, but not dealing with the problems they currently have. You can tell employee sentiment is low when employees are suing left and right. You don't sue a company if you feel your valued. People are suing because Methodist makes you feel unvalued and unappreciated with ridiculous pay and worsening insurance.
    -Name no longer means a thing. It used to make you feel good to say I work at Methodist. Now, if you tell someone you work there, they laugh and say they would never work there.

    Advice to Management

    Fight for your employees to receive raises. We are busier then ever and we deserve better raises, better insurance, and better dental.
