They pay well for a reason....consider it hazard pay.
RN (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – April 7, 2017
I was a RN here and one of the few that stayed over a year. Management is a joke and corporate doesn't care either. I understand that profit is of importance in a for-profit organization, but it shouldn't come at the expense of patient care and the safety of staff. They are perpetually under-staffed and nurses and techs are asked to work more than one unit at a time. I've seen many staff members injured because violent patients are kept on units without adequate staffing.
This place is always hiring....a revolving door ...the units are ran in a half manner...unsafe practices...and they just never keep staff. The staff is always complaining...human resource durector is so shady and lies to your face...just a really cursed place.

Medical Environmental Health Tech / Maintenance (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – May 12, 2016
I worked for this Company for over 2 years, and I must say it wasn't a pleasant experience. It Felt like Doom and Gloom, every time you set foot inside this facility . Most people I worked with on a daily basis, were not extremely happy at this facility. The Hardest part of the Job was lack of Communication. The Fact Materials needed, for my Department, to make work less stressful and Sufficient ,were not available even upon Request. The Most Enjoyable part of my Job, was knowing I was Appreciated by the Patients, and was told so on many occasions .

When trying to advance at Cypress Creek you may run into a brick wall depending on who you are and what background you come from. Certain people are only allowed to have certain jobs regardless of education,
Unit worker (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – March 19, 2014
It is clear that the administration does not care about its employees because they place no value on morale or treating one with respect. The CEO and HR director will lie to your face. There is no recognition for the positive things one does; only the negative issues are addressed. The work load is astronomically high and there is no support from the administration. In fact, when the hospital census is even the slightest bit low, staff members will be flexed off without warning and without pay. The staff members work in crisis mode all the time because there is so much to do and not enough time to complete the demands. They expect you to met every patient's needs whether or not you are on the clock. And if you go one minute into overtime you will be fired immediately.
The only thing that made this job enjoyable was working with the patients and the staff members on the unit. Do not trust the administration or any of the supervisors. This hospital focuses solely on the money and the executives will do ANYTHING possible to meet their budget and earn their bonuses.
Most of the staff on the units are caring, supportive and friendly
I started as a mental health technician and was promoted to discharge planner. Hard work and dedication is recognized and commended. Both positions were interesting. Working with psych patients is a great experience to build your communication skills, it can also be a challenge for some. Working at Cypress Creek Hospital will strengthen your personal integrity as well as your ability to empathize with other people from different walks of life.
Opportunity for advancement, warm culture, professional operations
MENTAL HEALTH TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – September 6, 2013
Really interesting work..Co workers were great and you will learn a lot if you pay attention to things on a day to day basis. The most enjoyable part of the job is when a patients family thanks you for your work.
support staff (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – May 27, 2013
I loved my job, associates & manager. then was sold & quality of care & management dropped. management was for money only, no loyalty to employees. you could tell the next employee to be fired because i witnessed it & was included in thier way of doing business.. HR was not there for the employees but backup for the management. i still know of more current workers that are looking for a way out. Sad, was an excellent hospital to work for in north houston area.
