    Pros

    It is a good place to obtain experience and they take the time to train every individual well. The staff and patients are the best part of working there.

    Cons

    Many are just forward to retirement. Anyone can be easily disposable.

    Advice to Management

    Regardless of what they do, the voices of the employees are not truly heard. Employees raises and salaries are the first to be considered to be cut in one form or another. Administration will always receive their raise.

    I have been working at Medical Center Health System full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Your fellow co-workers. These are the people who you "go to war with" every day. Many pros that I would have mentioned have been discontinued in the past year.

    Cons

    Severely under staffed. Completely under appreciated by management and administration. They have taken away many benefits that employees felt worthwhile to stay in west Texas for. They talk about cutting costs but are building clinics around town like they are Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks. Voted in closed session to discontinue retirees benefit to paid insurance leaving former employees scrambling to find insurance. They have NO regard for current, past or future employees.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is horrible!! But what do you expect when the administrator and the board are as cut throat as they are. They need a competent administrator who isn't looking out for his own welfare and pocketbook. Preferably one who can work a calculator.

    I worked at Medical Center Health System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of good people work here. Pay is above average for the area. Good parking. Security/Police are the best. Hard to find something good to say about the job though.

    Cons

    Always understaffed. Has been for many years. They always promise good ratios for the nursing staff, but rarely deliver. Department managers will lie to your face about getting help. They never help the staff. The building is always dirty.

    Advice to Management

    Webster and the board only think about "expanding" and can't handle what they have now. They do not support the staff at all. Patient care is frequently comprimised to the point oif being life-threatening as long as their "satisfaction" numbers look good. They won't fire a nurse because no one will replace them. That includes very bad nurses!

    I have been working at Medical Center Health System full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are very good.

    Cons

    Middle management is very poor. There is no value placed on experience and knowledge. Supervisors are making decisions that are detrimental to quality of work as well as quality of health care. Very poor morale.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. Just because a person has initials behind their name does not mean that they need a supervisory position. Improve middle management and the morale will greatly improve throughout the hospital.

    Pros

    They are a fairly little hospital and able to treat patients quickly. They have a med- chopper that can take you to the nearest or better hospital available 24/7.

    Cons

    I dont believe they take care of there employees very well. They are quick to fire and replace you and do not listen to your constructive critism.

    Advice to Management

    Need to listen to employees the ones that are doing most of the work rather than bosses.

    Pros

    Nursing staff is great. Everyone helps each other out and there is room to enter different specialties that your heart desires.

    Cons

    Heavy workload. You can easily get burnt out by the patient population and patient assignments. Ratio is 1:6 here and it will wear you out.
