Not Hardly A Good Place To Work!
Medical Assistant (Current Employee), Austin, TxDecember 27, 2014
Pros: couldn't think of one
Cons: management never around and never listen to real issues
Management is incapable of making sound decisions. Favoritism is clearly based on who you know in management and not what you know.Employee Insurance horrible. Employees are always bickering amongst each other.

Small Town Politics Rule
Patient Access Rep I (Former Employee), Seton Highland LakesDecember 5, 2014
Pros: most of the physicians/providers are amazing.
Cons: management and supervisors
The problem at Seton Highland Lakes is the Clinic Director and Managers. The hospital claims to be one of the best places to work, but that statement is only true if you work in Austin. At SHL you have to be directly related to or a friend of the Clinical Director and her children in order to be considered for advancement in employment. The same goes for the clinic manager. They get all their children and their children's spouses and friends hired and then promote them all, most undeservingly, and one even quit, then got rehired WITH a promotion. It is ludicrous. The employees who work hard and know their job inside and out get used and abused with no recognition.

Your only saving grace at SHL is several of the Physicians and Providers.

I do not recommend SHL.

Nice people, poor management
Business Systems Administrator (Former Employee), AustinAugust 14, 2014
Pros: great coworkers, a job that makes a difference
Cons: little to no room for advancement, management is very inconsistant
The company makes poor I.T. related decisions without consulting their I.T. professionals.

The company mismanages their money.

The people who work there are dedicated to their jobs and their patients and most have their hearts in the right place.

Best Environment I have ever worked in:
Business Systems Technician (Former Employee), Austin, TXFebruary 3, 2014
Pros: you get to be a part of the mission, not just a number
By far the best place I have ever worked.

The people behind the mission of Seton Healthcare believe in the mission and the culture of the agency is a true example of what it means to work in a safe, healthy, positive, learning environment.

Was once a great place to work. Now, top talent (and then some) is abandoning ship.
Medical Laboratory Scientist (Current Employee), Austin, TXDecember 1, 2013
Pros: job security ("it's impossible to get fired from seton!")
Cons: barely capable mid-level managers, completely disconnected administrators, top talent making a mass exodus, no career/professional development
Resources (human and otherwise) have always been scarce but what we're left with recently is just ridiculous.

Mid-level managers and administration are so disconnected from the reality.

Front line personnel are stuck counseling problem employees, managing critical escalations, etc., when these tasks are so far beyond the scope of their training.

Mid-level managers are either so blatantly disconnected or simply quick to soften the reality (so they look effective) by reporting to administration that all is functioning perfectly.

Low staffing, even lower morale, and increasing apathy among associates insure that a breaking point will be reached soon.

Horrible place to work!
CA (Former Employee), Seton Highland LakesSeptember 12, 2013
Pros: able to make your own schedule.
Cons: used to have good insurance...not the big happy work family they claim to be.
Worked at Seton Highland lakes for a year and 3 months. 12 hr shifts at night. Most nurses were very unprofessional. One in particular would yell at you in front of other employees and or patients and cuss you!.. Also at certain times of the year they would go into low cencus mode and cut u back to 12 hrs a week. Also supervisor would automatically believe anything the nurses say reguardless of what really happened..your side of the story does not matter!...Might be a good place to work if they actually went by the core values and quit with all the backstabbing! I loved patient care but found the employees to be "clickish" Certain employees could get away anything...

Just not for me
Project Manager (Former Employee), Austin, TXAugust 27, 2013
Pros: great for those in the healthcare industry
Cons: as a pm, hard to get anything done
I worked there for only a short time but long enough to realize it was not for me. As a project manager and being asked to create and run projects to better healthcare sounded like a chance to do something really great. Unfortunately my senior PM and myself could never secure funding from management despite having solid business and project plans.

Mission is Fantastic ... Work / Life Balance is Not
Administrative Services (Current Employee), Austin, TXApril 4, 2013
Pros: wonderful mission. extraordinarily talented associates.
Cons: top talent is mis-utilized. executive level leadership is out of touch with their staff.
Tremendous organization that truly is a cornerstone of the Austin community, unofortunately work life balance is non-existent. Span of control is truly an issue.

Too much work for too little money!
Radiology Technician II (Former Employee), Austin, TXFebruary 21, 2013
Pros: tech ladder
Cons: micro-management
Radiology brings in the most money to the hospital yet employees do not reap any of the benefits. Raises a mere 2% every other year, bonuses depend on hours worked. Benefits are awful; no birth control approved since it's a Catholic institution. Department and hospital falling apart, dirty and old. Micro-management as if workers were in pre-school, with no recognition for hard work and no support from upper management. Good experience from learning to work in trauma hospital, yet terrible experience from dysfunctional work environment.

Educating and coaching patients to self-manage their chronic lung disease
Pulmonary Rehabilitation Coordinator (Current Employee), Austin, TXJanuary 5, 2013
Pros: helping patients find their generative moments to self-manage their disease, and seeing the patients become stronger and more active.
Cons: getting necessary documents from some of the physician offices
A typical day is varied and broad in scope:

Patient and background information is routinely reviewed to enable education and coaching of patients to manage their pulmonary disease.

Customized patient education includes exercise equipment and technique that can be continued at home and in a gym. Patients are monitored when exercising to ensure they are working at the right level, measure if oxygen is needed to supplement and how much, and monitor their blood pressure.

Many patients are unfamiliar with their prescribed medications and don't always take them correctly, or when to contact their physician. In addition, quality of life can be improved through more thorough education that promotes understanding of infection control, energy conservation, relaxation techniques, oxygen safety & travel to improve disease management.

Medical summaries are regularly provided to referring Physicians to communicate patient recommendation or needs. Meet with Medical Director to review patients on weekly or bi-monthly basis

DME communication is also provided when the patient's needs for oxygen are not being met or if they don't have the correct equipment.

There was no typical day in the OR. I learned some much about handling extensive trauma patients requiring surgical interventions. Anything can happen at anytime. Team work was essential.
