      Pros

      Room for growth if you know the right people. School reimbursement and okay insurance benefits. Also 401k is okay and can be matched.

      Cons

      Very strict with policies, so if you don't like abiding to rules and changes in polices, this place isn't for you.

      Great Place to Learn

      Mar 8, 2021 - ICU Registered Nurse 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I started as a nurse here, straight into the ICU. I wouldn't change it for anything. The staff I work with is phenomenal; everyone is looking to help. I love the people I work with; the patients can be really hard (they have far more preexisting conditions since this is a county hospital), but the staff keeps me going. Nurses aren't here for the money, so the morale on the unit stems a lot from the fact that people work here to give back.

      Cons

      Of course management is not great. That's just part of healthcare. They try their best, though, and they really care about us. With the pandemic, the salary of nurses was bumped, and we're finally more competitive with other hospitals in the area. With that being said, though, it's supposed to be lowered shortly. However, the retirement plan is great (fully vested if you work for 6 years), so it's almost worth staying if you're worried about saving for retirement!

      Pros

      You get to work with a vulnerable population. Always learning something new. Get to make a difference in people's lives. Teaching hospital.

      Cons

      Too many politics. Leadership is not so great in certain departments. It is more about charting something vs taking time with patients. Not much opportunity unless you know somebody. Pay increase is not good.

      Not a ton of growth

      Mar 15, 2021 - Therapy Tech in Dallas, TX
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great team environment - some therapists are "know it all"s but there are other great ones to work alongside with. Nurses are really easy to work with as well. Hours are 7-3 so you are don pretty early.

      Cons

      Therapists talk like they are over you when really they are apart of your team. Because you are a tech, they think you are below them - when in reality the therapists wouldn't be able to do their job without you. Just have to learn to adapt to the personality of the therapist you are working with.
