    I worked at Texas Children's Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    World renowned, better pay than other facilities. Good benefits.
    Growing in the Medical Center and beyond.
    Opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Runs like an antiquated old small facility. Too much bullying and unhappy staff. Need new people to change the way “it’s always been done”. Staff not encouraged to be accountable; resulting in lower standards!
    No such thing as work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Retire. Stop the office politics and running off the best employees only to keep the less than mediocre ones around for 20-30 years.
    Some inexperienced and under-qualified management in some hospital areas

    I have been working at Texas Children's Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. No raises last year for the health plan

    Cons

    Management and Leadership just push to get more and more out of you. They make frequent changes and people making decisions do not understand the concept of Case Management and how it can help members and provide cost savings.

    Advice to Management

    Best thing they can do is clean house, stop all the knee jerk reactions. Make a long term plan by people who have experience and stick to it. The board is responsible for many of the knee jerk reactions.
    Really live the values you promot

    I have been working at Texas Children's Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility
    Location
    Benefits
    These things make it hard to leave, because they are very important.

    Cons

    Management are horrible.
    There’s a dictatorship going on with the Health Plan. Roles aren’t properly defined some are underpaid. Turnover rate is very high. Management doesn’t care if they retain employees or not. They will not even make an effort to keep someone. Everyone is treated like a number..Communication between staff and leaders are low. Relationships are disfuctional. There are about 2-3 people leaving a month or at least over 10-12+a year, that’s including the health plan and the centers. Compensation is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Become better leaders by caring for the employees. A little goes a long way!
