This review is for EMS Dept only I can not speack to other departments
Paramedic (Current Employee) – EMS – July 24, 2013
Great pay, great co-workers who really care, great hospital relations. Best paying EMS job outside Wilco and ATCEMS in central Texas. Good medical benefits with good retirement plan. Very nice uniforms, new up to date equipment and uniforms. NOW THE WARNING....... The EMS manager/director could care less about medics work life balance or much less anything you have to say. The medics are there to make him look good NOT the other way around. You will do it his way which he disguises as "The Seton Way!" Your down time is not your time. He would rather you up sweeping than resting between calls. The directors will be at the station m-f and show up through out the weekend and drive by at night to check on staff. He is in the position more to be a politician than to help the medics with patient care. The micro-management is constant and preached into the staff to "manage up" any type of staff concerns,complaint's or disagreements. Not to resolve them but just to get people to stop communicating about it. You will be responsible for calling around to all staff to find your own coverage for requested days off.(your own PTO you find your own coverage) This is complicated by the schedule and no 48's allowed. Multiple complaints written and stated to human resources and upper management go uncorrected and unacknowledged over multiple years by multiple EMS staff including supervisors.
Seton as a whole is great company and this could truly be the best EMS job around with new management. When that happens this will be a 5 star employer.
Co-working Field Medics really care, Pay, Medical Care
EMS Director/Managment, Shifts, Disrespect from EMS director
Working on revenue cycle, working with lead physician on compensation plan, budgets, etc. I feel like management runs to fix things that may have been avoided if someone asked an individual for some ideas on workflows. I feel as though associates need to define their own workplace culture and make it happen themselves. Hardest part of position is navigating through the red tape. Most enjoyable has been the opportunity to participate in Formation and training on emotional intelligence.
Seton is a great place to work, but the organization is not financially stable. layoffs occur at least on an annual basis. The organization is constantly changing, mostly with expansion, and this is dealt with on a yearly basis with layoffs.
Strong focus on providing healthcare to poor and under served.
ER RN (Former Employee) – Luling, TX – June 28, 2017
Strong healthcare support for Austin and the surrounding areas. Seton's mission for the poor and indigent is incorporated into each decision. Seton's partnership in surrounding areas such as Luling, Lockhart, Smithville, Burnet and others has kept health care close to home. Strong Nursing involvement with input at all levels.
Strong focus on community, large variety of positions and locations, opportunity for advancement and education.
Large conglomeration, demand for higher education for advancement.
Certified Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – June 21, 2017
I have to calibrate our machines get rooms ready for patients. Medications are stocked, bring patients back get vitals Hx, obtain records if needed. Give treatments in clinic if needed. Anything my provider needs be ready to assist. Sometimes parents can be difficult or even the kids but I treat people the way I want to be treated even when it's hard to have patients.
Seton wants you to enjoy your job! They provide flexible schedules and a comfortable work environment. They provide tools and equipment to help you be successful. Management has an open door policy and they encourage you to stop, if needed.
Family like place. Everyone knows each other before too long. Which is okay. Patients are mostly really nice since, again, they're all local. Management is close by and not all in their offices in Austin. Equipment got slowly better over the years.
Can move up. Benefits are good. Health insurance is great.
Documentation is insane. Pay isn't as good as most.
CA III (Current Employee) – Kyle, TX – April 9, 2017
Love my boss. Love this company, love our floor. Love how the CEO has an open door, love the ratios for CA to pt, I love the pay, love the insurance, love the flexibility of making my schedule, love vacation time,
Great benefits. Can be an awesome place to stay if management were better.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – April 6, 2017
I love the benefits Seton offers but certain departments within Seton could be better when it comes to management. Seton would be able to keep some loyal, hardworking employees if they let them have a voice against management without getting black marked.
Providers preferences will always come first even if they are wrong and unfair
I worked for Dell Children for two years in the Sterile Processing Dept. Loved the job itself and the hospital culture. The management and leadership of the surgical services is absolutely horrible and detrimental to your future. Very deceitful supervisors and managers. If you think this is just some random review knocking management, just ask around and you will find out how their employees are quitting this place. Turnover of SPD Techs is astounding. Must be some truth to what I say in this review. Trust in what I say, you do not want to work for this department within this hospital. Stay away from SPD at Dell
LVNIII (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – March 15, 2017
The hardest part of this job is to obtain prior authorizations and provide insurance requirements within a timely manner. Everything else is very enjoyable when it comes to patient care. Ascension guidelines for keeping up to date on employee certifications are becoming tedious.
Patient Access Representative II (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – March 11, 2017
Seton has a history of turnover. Turnover in business ownership, managers, and staff. I would not recommend Seton as an employer. They also force you to do a survey and strongly encourage you to not be negative so they can win an award.
Language Assistant Interpreter Senior (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – February 14, 2017
Beautiful mission statement and great co-workers who are passionate about their vocation. Too many lay-offs in the past 2 years, since becoming a member of Ascension hospitals. Low job security and low employee morale.
