    I worked at Parkland Health & Hospital System full-time

    Pros

    Known work schedule, diverse client population, compensation is fair, departmental management is good and easy to connect with

    I worked at Parkland Health & Hospital System full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Great Health Benefits, especially if within UT and Parkland network.
    - Beautiful place to work in.
    - In-house police on call 24/7
    - Great teaching hospital. Great Experience especially for new grads.
    - Great nurse incentive program.

    Cons

    - Most patients are either VERY RUDE or VERY SICK or BOTH. Lots of frequent fliers.
    - Management cares more about BUDGET rather than EMPLOYEE SATISFACTION
    - Acuity is very HIGH, expect to always be busy.
    - Staffing Ratios, especially nightshift, are very high. Especially in Med/surg
    - Can't laterally trasfer to a different department if you have a written warning on anything within 6 months.
    - High turnover rate
    - lots of employee burn-outs
    - Not a lot of opportunities to move up

    Advice to Management

    - With millenials making up the majority of employee population at Parkland, and upper management is mostly Baby boomers or Gen X, there is definitley a social gap. Managers need to learn how to relate to the employees of the younger generation. Learn how to listen to your employees and ideas they bring to the table. Some old leadership skills do not work in todays time. Either that or hire younger, fresher, more open minded management team. Allot more of the budget to better and safer staffing ratios.

    I worked at Parkland Health & Hospital System full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Reasonably decent salary and flexibility

    Cons

    High school like work atmosphere with gossip, cliques, and sucking up to management to advance. NO ONE you work with can be trusted and managers get vindictive when you don't "play along". Departments regularly "reorganize" to get rid of people (Community Health). There were ~ 10 employee changes for a team of ~ 15 in a little over a year in my former department, with the oldest/over age 50 people in the group not reassigned. ALL the Blacks let go too. That's a leadership and discrimination issue. Absolutely the work work environment I've ever experienced and in a hospital setting and there's no doubt that it trickles down to patient care.

    Advice to Management

    People who are vindictive and that lack morals and ethics can't be improved.
