      Abusive leadership. HR does nothing to resolve

      May 13, 2021 - Anonymous Employee in The Woodlands, TX

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Helping people. Ensuring quality care for all patients and families

      Cons

      Leadership is allowed to be abusive and pile on the demands while punishing you for not being able to do the work of 10 people. Most often managers have never worked in their specific area so they do not understand the needs of employees. If you go to HR they claim to protect you from retaliation but they don’t and you are labeled as problematic. My ex boss used to brag about pushing people she didn’t like out of work so she wouldn’t have to fire them. She has been reported multiple times to HR and nothing is done. Insurance- more expensive every year and less coverage.

      Excellent Organization with a flawed Department

      May 10, 2021 - Building Engineer Maintenance in Houston, TX
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      TCH is an amazing organization that takes very good care of the employees and patients alike. Excellent benefits across the board Paid parking in expensive TMC garages

      Cons

      This particular department is plagued with upper management who A. Doesn’t care about the well being of employees And/or B. Is completely inept at successfully managing a team. Projects are ill prepared and the boots on the ground are thrown to deal with the issues related to terrible planning at the top. An organization (TCH) that brags on opportunities for advancement is not the case in all departments. Zero care from upper management to promote employees for hard work or acquiring new certifications/licenses.

      Excellent Organization with a few flaws

      May 10, 2021 - Maintanace Engineer in Houston, TX
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The sense of pride working for such a distinguished hospital saving many thousands of lives every year. President Mark Wallace does an incredible job of running the organization and tries hard to keep moral within the organization High. Excellent benefits

      Cons

      Poor management trickles down from the senior VP level and leaves the men and women at the bottom to suffer. Poor planning from upper management leaves the engineers and technicians to suffer and scramble to correct issues that could have been prevented at the managers desks.

      Disfunction in HR

      Apr 17, 2021 - Human Resources Leader in Houston, TX
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Compensation, benefits, overall mission of the organization.

      Cons

      Human Resources is extremely dysfunctional. HR leaders do not demonstrate the values or expectations the organization is built upon. It would be putting it mildly to say politics and favoritism are the main drivers in HR and are the basis of most decisions. Turn-over is extremely high. Micro-bullying and aggression are evident, however, the organization appears unwilling to confront these issues and actually hold HR leaders accountable for the values/policies they allegedly profess to hold true. HR leadership decisions are made based on emotion, not facts, which increases risk for the organization. HR SME's are ignored to the point that legal compliance is compromised. Little to no autonomy is provided to senior level employees. It is a very tactical function with little to no forward thinking. The function is about 20 years behind the curve and unwilling to embrace any significant change.

      Be Careful

      Mar 9, 2021 - EMT-B in Houston, TX
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Decent pay for EMTs Decent Benefits (medical, dental, retirement, some college reimbursement for college if what you are going for is related to the medical field)

      Cons

      Transport team management are staffed by nurses with no prior transport history. The run the team like a unit rather than a transport team. No upward mobility possible for EMTs Safety takes a backseat to money (multiple mechanical issues with the units, the airplane ect) There was a solid year where one shift was left without a direct manager They promised multiple team members that they would be working at different campuses (woodlands, katy ect) and then forced them to work in the medical center or resign. Toxic culture among team members Lots of Q anon supporters and antimaskers which is... weird considering these are medical professionals with degrees. Also during covid management forced the EMTs to ride in the front of the ambulance wihout proper PPE with parents who had not been tested for covid. Have had multiple exposures because of this failed policy.
