Great organization as a whole to work for. You have job security and there are small incentives to working here. On the downside, you have very little advancement opportunities and will most like be expected to do the work of 2-3 people for the same pay.
Originally, I was hired here to work an Out Patient multi-modality clinic. I am bilingual (Spanish) and majority of my patients were Spanish speakers. I performed Screenings and Diagnostic exams seeing 15-20 patients per day, working on my own in Mammo. I also assisted in other areas of the facility, such as X-ray and CT. I loved the environment and the staff that I worked with, many of whom I am still friends with today. I worked regular day shift 8am-4:30pm, Monday-Friday, no weekends. The hardest part of the job was on busy days I had no backup to assist me with patients and paperwork. Nevertheless, it was an extremely pleasant job and I was commended frequently as the GELB system was used here. Throughout my learning years with MH, I switched to PRN and traveled through the various facilities, which I enjoyed. I also was accepted into Premiere, MH elite staffing agency, which paid very well. As time went by, Premiere was not used as frequently.
Busy, fast-paced, effervescent environment; no weekends

I didn't like how they would make me work every weekend and allow the other people to be off every week! They had their picks of who they wanted and at what times even though it got in the way of the original schedule that was made upon being hired

I really did not enjoy working here. Management was unorganized and micromanaging. Patient load was very heavy and staff was always short. The staff themselves were simply amazing!! They worked hard and always as a team, I have to say I did learn a lot from them.
I loved it here, there was really no negatives. We received great benefits, hours scheduled were more than manageable. This is a great place for promotion if you are social and you do your job correctly.
Memorial Hermann does a great job in promoting people to their level of incompentency. I worked at 2 different facilities and saw first hand how poorly management could destroy employee morale. Poor communication, favoritism, and absenteeism are just few major issues. I rarely saw my managers even when they said they would be available. Leadership was left up to the employees on site and since the managers weren't ever present took the word of the employee they favored best. Memorial Hermann is a corporation and not a hospital system. They truly do not care about their patients but the bottom line.
I have very good relationship with my co-workers. We function as a team and we are flexible with patient assignment and schedule. We strongly practice professionalism, courtesy and good communication with every co-worker, patient and patient's family.
Poor management, not responsive to opinions that are different than their own, and are retailatory when one disagrees in any way.

Poor management, not responsive to opinions that are different than their own, and are retailatory when one disagrees in any way. Unusual and inadequate choice of medications to administered to patients, and again are unresponsive for suggestions for approvement therein.

I was working in the lab and it was great. Different parts of the hospital would send down specimens to get process and I would break them down to where they need to go. I would be quick and make sure I get the job.
