Good benefits but a tremendous lack of accountability for physicians. Physicians are allowed to be exempt from ICARE values. They lack respect for others, patients, and accountability. They do not get addressed for negative cultures they create in the offices and instead of realizing that they are Methodist employees just as the rest of us are, they are allowed to make decisions and are treated as owners in private practice. Methodist was "dismayed" at not being on the top 100 employers list, this culture of turning a blind eye to bad physician behavior is one example of the hypocrisy. Until we treat ALL employees equally-- regardless of the title behind their names, or the acronym MD behind it-- we will continue to have issues as an organization, and will be unable to live up to our motto- leading medicine.
Patient Care Assistant (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – July 20, 2016
Houston Methodist Sugarland is great place to work. I currently work in the emergency room. Emergency room is always busy. Patients come from a far just to get the quality of service Methodist offers. Professionalism and dedication to provide the best care.
This was a good place to work. I was able to work independently and felt appreciated for the job done. Unfortunately an illness, which has been resolved with eye surgery, took an extended recovery which resulted in an administrative termination.
During my experience asan interpreter in Houston Methodist hospital, I used to go with my co workers to Zumba class twice a week after work
Liaison Medical interpreter (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – July 13, 2016
A typical work day includes using my skills in English and foreign language (Arabic) in order to provide invaluable services to the patients and the medical staff and to build the bridge to assure they are receiving accurate diagnoses and treatment. I learned how to control my emotions, same time how to show empathy to patients. My experience as an interpreter also includes using communication skills as being part of every step in the healthcare process such as consultation, scheduling for appointments and others. Working as an interpreter means being part of a big family of interpreters who work together in order to assure that we cover all the appointments, including those unscheduled, and being able to handle the delay in a professional way. The hardest part of the job is when we have incurable patient while the part I enjoy the most is when telling the patients that they completely recovered.
Sr. Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – July 13, 2016
I loved working for Houston Methodist. I left to start school full time and now I'm at another large organization and I can say, they have nothing on Houston Methodist. As a Medical Assistant my start of pay was GREAT. The benefits and random bonus received, AWESOME. The saying "MY PLEASURE" sticks with you. Patient care is #1 key but the Methodist organization yet and still takes care of their employees. The competition is no competition when it comes to how a large organization treats its employees.

The Methodist Hospital had a superb training program and there was plenty of support from all staff. I learned a great deal about being an ICU nurse, as well as clinical neurology. The Methodist Hospital is now Magnet status.

This is a wonderful place to work at. It is fast paced but what hospital isn't that. Staff is awesome and always looking for you to improve your skills. Unfortunately my contract ended with them so definitely working with them if another opportunity arises.
Sr. Training and Development Analyst (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – June 19, 2016
This hospital puts itself off as one of the best places to work, and maybe for clinical staff that is true. But for us that work in the background it is rife with politics, racism, and sexism. Every single day is a struggle to get through without someone saying something derogatory or racist. I have never worked in such a negative environment in my life.
