I completed the leadership program that MH offers with hopes of advancement and with layoffs and new restructure, I find there is little opportunity for advancement. The average pay is below market value, and their insurance ONLY allows you to use Memorial Hermann hospitals. If you have doctors you like, better check to see if they accept your insurance before working for Memorial Hermann. A lot of popular physicians in the Houston area do not accept it. In the past year, our particular department has felt little to no support from management/leadership since they are spreading managers thin. I'm sure many others do not share the same experience, but overall I think Memorial Hermann is a good company to work for. Find the right manager!
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.

My work days and hours were scheduled weeks in advanced. Worked with alot of different patients and everyday was hands on work which i enjoyed very much. You always interact with people and meet and greet people. Must have good people skills and good attitude.
RN, Nurse residency program (Current Employee) – Pearland, TX – July 6, 2017
I am a new RN however have experience in emergency medicine (just under twenty years) and none of this was considered when determining my income at Hermann. As staff we are overworked and underpaid with poor opportunity for work/life balance. I was "put on the list" to be moved to an AM shift (currently work nights) as promised to me when I was hired, however after a year I've witnessed new hires be placed on day shift while I patiently wait to be offered what was promised to me over a year ago.
My co-workers are great and I do enjoy working with them
Short breaks, if any breaks can be afforded at all
Great working environment. In this facility I was able to expand my experience in different fields. When I worked on this Unit they gave me different opportunities/ Positions to maximize my talent & expertise.

The whole hospital closed down after it was bought up by another company. .
Unit Secretary, Office Assistant II, Scheduler (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – July 5, 2017
A typical day is very fast paste. We see close to 40 patients a day. Learn to use your heart, your head, then your heart again, when dealing with patients. The hardest part of the job is encouraging patients to come in for pre-assessment before surgery. Most enjoyable job is that I get to meet many different people from all over the world.
We get Christmas gifts
We can only use Memorial Hermann insurance and doctors

Central Supply Team Lead (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – June 30, 2017
I enjoyed working with my team. I am grateful for the opportunities I have had and the people I have met. There are good people here that care about others. Unfortunately, leadership is poor and lack vision.

Materials Management Attendant III (Current Employee) – Cypress, TX – June 28, 2017
The people who work at Memorial Hermann Health System are decent people and all are professional in their craft. However, the work atmosphere is very corporate and one does not take long to notice this mood amongst each other. Everyone hired is good at their craft. There is very little room for individuality in this work environment as management quickly asserts it self to remind its employees about the rules and why there are rules; mainly the rules are enforced for safety and for simplicity for anyone to follow your work. They have good line of communication amongst departments and with-inter departments because you will have daily meetings (huddles) about work issues. Suggestions are welcome from anyone, but seldom implemented especially if they differ or contradict current rules. Be ready for constant change from new ideas to reverting back to old ideas. Work each workday as is and don't get discourage of the fickle mindset of management.
