Lieutenant - TCH Lead Officer (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – June 3, 2016
For 13 years I worked for Texas Childrens Hospital and received numerous promotions including my last role as a Lieutenant - TCH Lead officer at the (NRI) Neurological Research Institute. During my career I served as a Lieutenant working in diverse buildings at Texas Childrens Medical Center. I patrolled the facilities;observed inside and outside of the hospital for potential hazards and provided safety for patients, visitors and staff.
Day start at 6:45 am. TCH is a teaching hospital for Baylor College of Medicine. I learned how to take care of pediatric patients in the Emergency room and Critical Care Unit.Excellent management team. Co- Workers are warm and friendly. The hardest part of the job was losing a child. The best part of the job was taking care of a critical ill child; got well and went home with family.
Too many managers!!!! The managers here always tries to find dirt on people. People should be allowed to come to a big institute to work in peace. The managers here trys to get people in trouble every way they can. Too many rules.. Plus, the staff are back stabbing and two face people. Bottom Line: The pharmacy management team and the pharmacy staff are not one to be trusted. They are not professional at all.
Everything about the back office of TCH is old school personnel, no laptops, no wi-fi, dated technology. You have to buy your own supplies, coffee, water etc. They have high turnover and low employee morale. Too much middle management, you have Leads, Supervisors, Managers, Asst Dir, Dir, AVP, SVP etc. too much.
They pay very well
Techology, Culture of Micromanagment, No work life balance
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – May 25, 2016
Working at Baylor made the patient's know that we really cared about there well being. Assisting patient's to exam rooms, getting there vital signs, collecting lab specimen's if needed. Assisting the physician with any exams or procedures for the patient's. I learned that patient's need to know that someone care and wants to help them. Not just make them a number. We had good managers along the way that wanted the same for the patients. Co-workers developed the same understanding of how a patient should be treated and valued. The hardest part of my job was when my patient's were grieving of a loss. Such as a pregnancy. The most enjoyable part of my job was making my patient's happy and they were very happy to see me as I was to see them.
Knowing that we all worked as a family
Not being able to help the patient's achieve pregnancy.

Unit support assistance (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – April 15, 2016
Texas Children Hospital is an awesome place to work. Everyone is skilled and patient, friendly and helpful. The staff is always smiling and ready to assist when needed. Working here has been a joy. I work in housekeeping and the best part of my day is meeting new staff and greeting patients and families.
Unit Secretary/ PCA/Team Leader (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – February 22, 2016
I love it here at Texas Children's but there are NO advancement in the department I currently work in. I went to school and got a bachelors degree in Health Administration/Health Management and I can not use it in my current area. Also the parking arrangements for employees is not so good. It adds on an extra 10 minutes to actually getting into the building.
short lunch, parking, no advancement in my department
Sometimes working with difficult people can mean a stressful day and makes the day go by slow. But I've learned that as long as you communicate and remember that you are their for the patient and not for anything else you can have a strong positive and effective day that goes by very smooth and rapidly.
The most enjoyable part about working for TCH is providing the best hospital experience for our patients and family's. My leadership team lead tirelessly to provide the best service for our patient and employees.
Unit Clerical Assistant (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – April 30, 2016

IT Security Analyst I (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – February 8, 2016
This company is all about the numbers and they want the heat to stay off of them. I come in do my work and go home. Manger has never been in our field before so it makes it hard to relate to him sometimes. CEO of the company is great and love some of the thing that TCH stands for.
I worked here for 18.5 years and worked on medical imaging equipment. I worked mainly with X-ray systems. I did maintenance and PMs on stationary and mobile systems. I did a lot of support work using Excel and other software programs.
I was able to work on my own and required minimal manager interfacing.
Management changed and the level of management inlacing became oppressive.
