    Pros

    The night shift crew has a family feel to it and even though at times we were stressed the sense of calm remained. Management is approachable with criticism and quick to say kudos to team members who excel.

    Cons

    with the run for magnet status the LVN is left to non clinical roles which is a waste of a trained bed side nurse.

    I worked at Memorial Hermann Health System (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Since the company is established, they have great training and resources for new hires and existing employees. The LMS system can track continuing education and easy to find courses. Workday is also a great HRIS system, but more beneficial to HR, since a lot of the employees aren't tech savvy. It's also easy to transfer into another department.

    Cons

    Transition to Workday was horrible. No communication from leadership. Low salary. Existing employees are often looked over for promotional opportunities, bringing in external talent, leaving internals demoralized.

    Advice to Management

    Develop internal talent, they were hired for a reason.

    I worked at Memorial Hermann Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Always busy, make the days go by faster. That is the only pro.

    Cons

    If you're looking to get some knowledge, get your foot in the door, and expand your career, this is not the place to do that. I would suggest looking in a different department than Outpatient Imaging. Never have I worked at a place where you are overworked and never rewarded. For the past 2 years I worked there, I had three managers. Turnover is extremely high and we are constantly understaffed.

    PTO: You accrue your time, but are not allowed to use them. Fellow coworkers were filing for FLMA because they were unable to take a week off for their personal medical needs. If you request off in advance, you do not know if you were approved of your time until the day before you need to be off.

    You are allowed a 30 minute lunch break, and you have to clock in and out which ultimately leaves you with 27.5 minutes for lunch. Eat Fast! Waters must be kept in a cubby and you are not allowed to bring snacks.

    There is no personal time during work. You must constantly be working and if you are caught taking a moment for yourself management will question you. PARs are to remain at their "post" at all times and if they leave to use the restroom they must let another PAR know, or management will come looking for you and will question you on that as well.

    You will constantly be asked to work over time and extra days and new PARs being hired are hired as supplemental with no set hours and cannot speak for themselves as they will not be granted their full time employment within the 90 days.

    No movement within the department or outside the department. I spoke to management numerous times about transferring or cross training or moving outside the department and was constantly shut down. Management does not care about your career development and does not care about you personally. You are just a body to fill a position for them so they can improve their monthly reports to their management team.

    Advice to Management

    Find managers who are meant to manage. Quit promoting people because they've done so much time in the department. Managers should be warm, welcoming, and make their employees feel valuable. Without your employees, you are doing nothing and increasing your already high turnover rate. Do more research when recruiting for managers and assign more personality tests when hiring your next manager. Be diligent in recruiting, you are wasting so much time and money.
