    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.

    Nice peolpe

    Overall all a good experience, however, it could have been better if manager was cooperative.

    Good medical research experience. Management does not completely support employee which could be discouraging. High turnover rate

    Take Methodist Research as a viable group

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and resources. Provides great support to employees and have good company core values. Company is focused on becoming one of the best in the business.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of negative things I can say. I have limited opportunities to advance, but this is atypical at this institution and more job specific to my field.

    Advice to Management

    Management at the Hospital in general does an excellent job of providing feedback to employees as well as getting feedback from employees.

    Pros

    Methodist centers itself on values. It's in the heart of the medical center in Houston where cost of living is low.

    Cons

    The Methodist Hospital can be competitive because the hospital is very high profile. Medicine has it's ups and downs no matter where you work.

    Advice to Management

    The Methodist hospital was a wonderful place to work. I am so thrilled for Marc Boom to be taking over for Ron Girotto. I truly believe he will make wonderful things happen for the hospital.

    I worked at Houston Methodist full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, very competitive pay, and a large system if you are looking for promotion. Frequent bonuses for performance.

    Cons

    Poor cooperation among Director-level employees. Cut-throat tactics are rewarded - or ignored, but never addressed. This often leads to stress and issues at the worker-bee level.

    Advice to Management

    Address the hyper-competitive and destructive attitudes of Vice Presidents and Directors. This behavior has a very negative effect on morale.

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

    Pros

    I Care Values help to structure your growth with the company. Methodist creates a direction for creativity and action. The energy that flows through this hospital system is goal and vision generated. ASK, Believe, and Receive.

    Cons

    I don't have one, but would like to continue being lifed through this company.

    Advice to Management

    I know right now that the hospital state of mind has put limitations on Medical Institutions, around our country. My belief is that : what every you project in your mind to be sound and good ground business choices believe that and the rest of us will follow. Love working for this company.....
