Terrible management.
Instrument Technician (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXDecember 20, 2017
In the Sterile Processing department, they make it hard for hard-working individuals with experience to advance. They hire people without experience as full time and give PRN to seasoned techs, then complain about being understaffed. Management is super political and put people with little to no experience in charge.
Pros
Great benefits

Administrative Support (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXDecember 13, 2017
It can be very fast paced however everything done there is collaborative. The feeling of taking care of patients isn't just for nurses and doctors. Administrative employees can see and feel the help they're providing.

Poor pay and Extremely Poor Leadership
Police Officer (Former Employee) –  United StatesDecember 10, 2017
Pay was very low even though HR claimed that pay was comparable to others in the region. Extremely poor leadership from Department Director and very unprofessional. All complaints to HR were brushed under the rug and behavior was allowed to continue. High turn over rate of employees for this very reason. HR allows Directors to make up rules outside of Corporate Policy. The police agency for the Health System is run like a security company . They are discouraged from arresting people/employees who have clearly violated the law and do not want a heavy policr presence. Police Department is very short staffed due to mismanagement of manpower placing Police Officers in danger and giving medical staff a false sense of security. On a positive note, they do have great medical benefits and the medical staff is passionate about their jobs.

Medical Surgical Technician (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXNovember 30, 2017
Busy once you clocked in. Learned to be patient. We had all kinds of cultures in the workplace. Hardest time is when I couldn't understand the nurse also when management wouldn't assist with the work load. Most enjoyable when the floor ran smoothly.
Pros
Sales, discounts on apartments
Cons
No breaks, short handed
