Case Management (Former Employee) – Methodist Hospital San Antonio – November 14, 2015
General Hospital orientation is welcoming in comparison to other facilities in San Antonio, but once you are working in your designated department watch your back. The Methodist Healthcare System may preach the pillars of excellence and standards, but that is quite frankly a joke in my experience. Just like their mission is to "Serve Humanity to Honor God" lol. I am proud and blessed to be a Christian, but I have never been tormented or treated so poorly in my entire career. I was disillusioned by thinking this was a company based upon christian values. As an organization they may have a vision of greatness, however it is focused on promoting themselves and not their employees. Management never smiles and is consistently negative in their behavior visible for all to witness. Too bad they really don't follow their so-called mission to work as a team in a culture dedicated to improving their deliver of healthcare. Customers are not always treated the same, especially the ones with insurance. I found it very offensive that chairity patients are given free medicine, transporation, and equipment, while paying customers weren't offered similar assistance. For some reason they seem to go above and beyond for some, but others are left to their own vices. I personally observed physician's ordering and perforiming costly testing and procedures that could and should have been performed in an outpatient setting. There are identifiable situations where patients are kept in the hospital when they are otherwise stable and safe to be discharged simply because the physician wantsmore... to bill for an additional consultation fee. Innocent hard working staff member's are held accountable for inadequacies that originate in other departments or other coworkers. Medical staff often dictate what vendors are consulted instead of customer's ultimately having the right to choose who provides the services for them. Employees are not welcomed to offer better more efficient ways to perform their job. Staff are allowed to disrespect and harrass other employees with no management intervention. Professionals are not treated with fairness or recognized for providing exceptional care. Employees within the same department are not held accountable to the same standards related to their job description. Some employees arrive late and leave early on a daily basis while others performing the identicle job are scrutinzed in every aspect. When the facility doesn't make their budget then beware, as they will be on a witch hunt and you may be their target. Lastly, if you accept employment with this organization make sure that your Director has accepted using email by means of communication like the rest of the business world. Unfortunately my managent team responded to all my emails before I started employment at Methodist, but after I started to work she responded to very few when requesting support and guidance. I feel this is calculated on managements part, as then you have no documentated record of the discussion. Managements lack of integrity is your loss, as it is their word against yours. So if you still want to be a part of the Methodist TEAM, remember that it isn't a Culture it is a CULT!less
Benefits OK, some nice coworkers
Inconsistenty in management, held accountable for others lack of integrity

Besides the management in this place, I love the people I work with. There's plenty of room to grow in this hospital, benefits are great and discounts are awesome. I love the diversity in this hospital.

Working for Methodist is like dealing with some that manic bipolar. Some days you can see a normal day. Then on other days it just does not pay to come to work. Upper managment will promote people they like over the most qualified person. If you are looking to gain experiance Methodist is a great building block. Any thing past 5 years an you are just wasting time. Fyi I have a gold badge to back up my review for any hr person that works for Methodist hr that will dispute my claim.
Poor behavior, Poor Managment, Great starter company not a place to build a career.
Pleasing patients and guest everyday. Helping management with patients and if they become short handed help out. Management isn't to helpful in my department in the full time area. Getting the food to patients correctly is the hardest part. Building friends out of your co-workers is the most enjoyable part.
pay, food, meeting new people everyday, helping others in the biggest and smallest way.
NOT BEIGN ABLE TO TAKE OFF LIKE YOU WANT WITH PTO, NOT BEING ABLE TO MOVE AROUND LIKE YOU WOULD LIKE, NOT BEING ABLE TO GO TO CHURCH ON SUNDAYS
Pharmacy Trainer, full time (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – October 8, 2015
Culture is everything and I have nothing negative to say about the culture at Houston Methodist. I worked there for over ten years and if I had the opportunity to grow in my position I would have never left. It was not due to any other reason other than the fact that I desired more professional development and experience. The folks that get it, really get it and it shows! I still breathe and live the ICARE values and I am very proud of my time there.
Registered Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – October 7, 2015
This was a big hospital and you always had time to do the work , the people were very pleasant. The distance between pt. could be great and you had enough time to do the work. This was a travel assignment and still a great place to work.
Tech II (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – September 27, 2015
I typical day at work for me would be described as I would come in since I worked in the CVICU. I had to make sure all coolers on the unit were iced and at the patients bedside just in case of an emergency.While doing so I would answer the phones and transfer all calls to the correct personel.After maintianing the area and assiting the families I would check to make sure all materials were odered for the the unit.My co-workers would descibe me a a joy to work with.The hardest part of working in the unit is when we lost a child it was hard on everyone. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the sucess of the children in need gettinfg what they needed.
Seeing a life saved, and watching them grow
Loosing a life and, the heartache it had on the families
