    I worked at Medical Center Health System full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Has a nice retirement program, has good medical benefits, has good parking for employees, the management is easy to work with if you have issues.

    Cons

    The HR office is off in another building on the other side of the campus which can be hard to get to if you need to go there while working

    I have been working at Medical Center Health System full-time

    Pros

    I started my nursing career there, we were a team back then and where I work now I love the girls and guys I work with and of course my boss!

    Cons

    There are no incentives to work there, some of the department heads never give a chance to an individual that has an advanced degree if they do not fit in with their status quo! They hire inexperienced Nursing educators that are of no help to the young nurses! They are always short handed !!

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your Nurses, be a mentor and do not be judgemental! You yourselves are not perfect!!

    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

    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 have been working at Medical Center Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The staff work as a team and are willing to help and educate you. The nursing education department is knowledgable and helps advance your knowledge by offering certification programs.

    Cons

    Under staffed and over worked. Nurses don't have enough help and are always carrying six patients. Charge nurses sometimes carry a patient load of 4-5 patients.

    Advice to Management

    Better staffing for safer patient care

    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.

    Cons

    I was a new grad and they wanted to rush me off of orientation because they were so short staffed not very safe
