Urgent Care, Nurse Practitioner (Current Employee), ambulatory clinic in downtownSeptember 16, 2014
Pros: excellent pay, great working staff
Cons: frequent turnover in nursing management, somewhat disorganized in certain areas of mangement overall
The workplace was incredibly satisfying due to the staff I had working with me. My supervisor was incredible and the nursing staff was first rate. I spent 11 years there and hated leaving, but due to starting my Doctorate, I had to switch to registry, part-time and they needed a full-time Triage NP for this position.

Phlebotomy Technician (Former Employee), Houston, TXJune 13, 2014
Pros: close to my home, no traffic, worked there along time, my patients and nurse staff i enjoyed meeting
Cons: short staff, no break when permitted, change in managment, need more teamwork
typical day at work would be getting started by getting my cart stocked check the schedule to find out your location for the day. Fill in where needed if someone called in. if I have a student or new employee I make sure to get them started also. I get the routine 8 o'clock rounds and go draw blood samples. I return with my samples and receive my specimens – more... transport them to the right department. after the rounds I will normally take a break then return to out-patient services. I will help out there till two o'clock rounds come out. during the day im also doing stat blood draws. Two 0;clock rounds are done its around three o'clock so I start to clean up my area and cart for the next shift. I then inform my co-worker of any problems I had during the day or concerns of any..this is my typical day at work. – less

A place for multitasking
Materials Management Tech II (Former Employee), Houston, TXJune 3, 2014
Pros: family like atmosphere, advancement is really up to one's self, easy access to training for promotion and/or changing of career
Cons: expensive spousal insurance, heavy workload dues to personal shortage.
For 4 years as a Tech I, I was lead tech on the receiving dock. Time was always flying due to constant receiving of product, heavy paperwork, constant deliveries and special project coordination. Busy, busy, busy, yet inner hospital workings were not relative at that time. As a Tech II I was with the Central Supply team and boy was that a culture shock! – more... It took some getting used to walking through the ER and not be affected by the chaos. Stocking supplies in units was no problem but regulating the PYXIS can be challenging because different departments have different priorities. Working on the dock, I dealt with department management regarding their products and their budgets. Working in Central Supply, I dealt more with the hospital staff, Nurses and Nurse Assistants. At Harris Health the attitude is Service First. This means so much to me because I was asked once who is considered a customer. Being a well rounded member of the Supply Chain Management team at Harris, my answer is Everyone. Our responsibilities as a team are so broad in scope that it is the only way I see it. It's also close to my own life motto, " No one can tell me who not help because we are all in this together". I am fortunate to work with the people I have worked with because of the Multi-Cultural element. Thanks to this diversity I feel like I have friends around the whole world. The hardest think about my job is really going home. Working in a hospital environment is a never ending journey 24-7. Every time I left for the day, I was always thinking of what else I could have done. Not because I was leaving work undone, but because the thing I learned most in working in a hospital environment is change is constant for the sake of improvement. As long as there are new ways to upgrade customer care then our roles within are constantly evolving as well. I do not envy the tasks that management is faced with, especially during budget constraint. So much to juggle. A good place to work. A great place to learn. – less

Pros: pension, good benefits
Cons: managment
I have been here for quite some time and have seen lots of changes but I think what keeps the people here are the people they work with. It has changed alot over the years but as with healthcare now it is a little different than what it used to be but the people you work with are always the same kind hearted and fun to work with

managament (Former Employee), houston,txFebruary 18, 2014
Pros: there is no pros
Cons: silos, bad managament
Harris Health doesn't practice what they preach, there is a complete huge gap between the chief executive level and the VP management and below. The left hand doesn't know what the right hand does, no accountability. Advancement is by relationship not knowledge of the job. Good management leave because they don't play management games of relationships, – more... at time it seems maybe a race thing. – less
