    I worked at Houston Northwest Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was good until CHA took over. They do trauma well, and most of the docs are great.

    Cons

    For hospital located in the hood, co-workers are racists. Patients are treated bad, Too many psych patients at one time assigned to 1 nurse. Manage uncaring of staff needs until something bad happens.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting butt kissers in leadership positions.
