    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Working for the Texas Children's organization is exciting, but the Health Plan is viewed as a separate organization. Texas Children's has great benefits and employee resources.

    Cons

    Health Plan leaders are unqualified and perpetuate a toxic working environment. Employees are not recognized for successes and are not promoted appropriately. The only employees promoted are friends of the leaders. Educated and intelligent employees are regulated to menial tasks and not given any room for advancement opportunity. Women regularly stab each other in the back, so nobody trusts each other. Very unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Time to clean house and get some qualified LEADERS who actually lead instead of micromanaging their employees. You have qualified employees who are being sidelined by incompetent managers and Assistant Directors. The Health Plan needs a major workforce overhaul in order to lose the toxic work environment.
