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.
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.
Patient Access Representative Team Lead (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – February 7, 2017
The usual day in the Emergency room is hectic but manageable. I've learned a great deal here from multitasking to managing 26 employees. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping the patients that are poor and vulnerable. Abiding by the mission.
