    Pros

    Good benefits and good clinical people to work with

    Decision making at the top of the organization and little control over budgets, decision making.

    Push (real) decision making down the organization and get out of people's way and give them the resources to do their job.

    Pros

    Great managers to support and work with, employees to help.

    Horrible culture and leadership breeds favoritism. Nepotism. If someone knows the has the connections there is no limit to achievement or income and no boundary.

    Advice to Management

    analyze your policies and apply to yourself

    Pros

    Great learning environment, Fast paced

    Cons

    I am not aware of how it is throughout the hospital, but specifically in the cancer center the medical assistants only vital, room, clean and aid patients in the bathroom. We are not allowed to give injections, draw blood or administer any medications. It can get boring and very repetitive.

    Pros

    Large, recognizable name in a good industry

    Cons

    My Experience at UH was terrible.

    Within first week of hire was told the million $ platform I was responsible for could not perform any of the items listed in my job description and they attempted to pivot me to something completely different.

    Management used gaslighting, manipulation, coercion, and intimidation to try and force me into other responsibilities. Was told that the departments was a “difficult” place to work when I complained about harassment and the hostile work environment. Below are just a few examples:

    Directors shamed me in from of colleagues for responsibilities that were explicitly in someone else’s job description.

    A colleague threatened me by saying management will “break me”.

    Females exposed themselves to me in order to create anxiety before management tried to give me their work.

    Management contacted my family and telling them “I was not doing my job” to try and make me do things well outside my job description.

    Police barged in on a meeting I was in an attempt to make again induce anxiety and make me feel that I was in trouble.

    Once the 3 year contract for the platform was nearly done, management began writing me up for various “performance issues”. These included things like not producing consistent reports after I had been asked to adjust them then made said changes, and not completing project tasks that were assigned to someone else.

    In essence, management failed to properly implement a million-dollar system and I was the scapegoat.

    This was during the same time frame as the UH Fertility incident, where basically the cryogenic system failed and was not repaired, the backup cryo system failed and was not repaired, then the audible alarm that alerted someone it was time to add additional coolant literally with a bucket failed, destroying 1000’s of eggs/embryos. They are currently fighting multiple lawsuits of negligence which they deny although it's clear they were negligent with the maintenance of a critical system. I think this speaks to the UH’s culture and management style that I experienced, which was one of disorder, ineffectiveness, incompetence, and negligence with an deliberate ignorance to having responsibility for any of it.

    Advice to Management

    Unethical and toxic culture of the organization will continue to undermine the business unless something is done about it.
