    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.

    Pros

    Houston Methodist is definitely patient focused. They do provide excellent healthcare. They take very good care of their physicians, nurses and allied healthcare employees.

    However....if you're in a non-healthcare position, that's a different story. Physicians regularly demonstrate a total lack of ICARE values towards non-clinical staff (including throwing temper tantrums if they don't get their way). Other departments rarely respond to emails or phone calls.

    Cons

    ICARE values aren't practiced internally - there is a lack of respect shown by physicians and others to any non-healthcare department. Unparralled is just a buzzword when it comes to looking at how some departments are run. Some are so filled with legacy people, there's no hope of change.

    HR locks in pay scales and isn't realistic about increasing them in order to keep good employees.

    Advice to Management

    Houston Methodist will probably respond that they take ICARE values seriously. They don't. HR looks the other way.
