    Pros

    Great mission and awesome staff!

    Cons

    CEO has lost his vision and passion. He just continues to collect his $4-5 million dollar paycheck each year from this great hospital. Senior leaders to include physicians are leaving in droves. 2 of the 6 in-chiefs has resigned and 4 of 9 SVP's have resigned this year. Staff are being promoted to the executive level that are not ready or even qualified. There is no type of succession planning, hence the inconsistency of executive promotions. You are promotion based on a popularity contest, not on what you know!

    Advice to Management

    The Board of Directors needs to replace Wallace immediately, and hopefully replace him with a CEO that can turn this hospital around before it's too late!

    Pros

    Great medical team to work with and satisfying work

    Cons

    Your annual salary increase is not based on your performance although they say it is. Even if you make outstanding or exceptional you will never make more than a 2.5 or 3% raise contrary to what you are told at hiring. Only top admin make 5% raise.

    Advice to Management

    Please provide a pay increase based on merit

    Former Employee - Claims Examiner & Education Coordinator in Houston, TX

    I worked at Texas Children's Hospital full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I faced a lot of challenges when I worked at Texas Children's Health Plan and through those challenges, I learned a lot about myself in pushing through them to achieve more than I thought possible.

    Cons

    Some of the jobs I applied for that I felt I was more than qualified, I didn't receive an interview or if I did get an interview I found out later that the person that was hired was someone that the person hiring manager knew.

    Advice to Management

    To stop playing favoritism and the hiring process should be on the person's annual performance review's if they are presently an employee.
