Medical Records Clerk (Current Employee) – Trinity, FL – January 19, 2019
My director is great, she understands that family issues are important. Very friendly co-workers, not just in my department, but every department. Human Resources department is fantastic. I am extremely fortunate to work here.
Great staff.. They're what keeps that place afloat. Benefits were Ok. Pay was at least $5 or more under avg and pt:nurse ratios were unsafe almost every shift. Expect you to basically sink or swim. Upper management only cares about the numbers game and expects you to do whatever it takes to get those numbers even if it puts your license on the line. Alot of great staff.. It's too bad they don't recognize it.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – January 10, 2019
As to be expected in a level 1 trauma center, this is a very stressful workplace. It doesn't help that there are staffing issues too. All in all a good place to gain valuable nursing experience. But too chaotic and stressful to make nursing enjoyable.
Decent pay, great benefits, supportive team on unit
NICU RN (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – October 29, 2018
Overall great place to work. There was some favoritism in the NICU and the charge nurses would give the easy assignments to their friends and leave new nurses or nurses they weren't friends with the stressful and difficult patients.
Great benefits, get paid on time
Hardly any break in a 12 hour shift, not enough nurses to fill the need
Parking Lot Cashier/Office Helper (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – August 21, 2018
After 4 years working here all parking cashiers were given 2 weeks notice in December 2014 we were being replaced with auto tellers and would no longer be employeed here. There was no severance pay just our last paycheck. After 3 years of working here I finally got a $.40 raise.
The OR is not a good place to work. I wasn't satisfied with the job I had. The job was presented different when I interviewed for it. One I started working the job started to change. When I informed the management team of issues going on I never heard back from them. SPD was disaster. Never enough instruments and no one seemed to care if they were needed for cases. All upper management throughout the hospital were new. Just made we wonder what was really going on in the hospital.
Multi Skilled Tech (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – September 13, 2018
Medical City is a nice place to work although there is no advancement or growth within the department. The pay is low and doesn't make with the cost of living, as the annual raise is no more than .25cents with a prefect job performance.
Overall review, I believe they do not compensate their employees with enough pay. Have to work overtime just to make enough. Work/life schedule is not balanced due to understaffed conditions at the job. Management does not think of their employees and their needs, the only thing they’re concerned with is how they can better maximize productions efficiently and accurately. They over work employees and take advantage of the situation of there not being enough staff which causes new employees to quit due to working over 60 hours weekly. Job needs to new management in place, quite a bit more employees, and better salary pay for its employees.
Great co-workers, can have as much overtime as you want, guaranteed hours, job security
Overworked, no advancement, low pay, hard to get vacation, poor management
Radiology Supervisor (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – December 6, 2018
When I go to work, I feel as if I am going to see my friends and family. My team works very well together. We work hard to make sure our patients are given the best care possible. We can rely on each other to help out any time it is needed. This type of environment makes for a very enjoyable day at work.
We are given the freedom to make our own decisions, We are not micro-managed, It feels good to know that we are trusted to make good decisions for the company
We do not get compensated as much as other facilities in the area pay their employees, Based on our workload compared to other facilities, this can be a little frustrating.
This hospital pays below the average hospital in the area for the same skill set. Self scheduling is great. The health benefits is very expensive and the company doesn't pay enough. Top performing using evidence based practice.
While the day to day at work can differ vastly from other jobs, the various tasks and projects do help with the mundane work environment. Management is kind and understanding, pay is very nice for what you have to do. The hardest part of the job most days is just all of the physical labor involved; climbing up ladders, in ceilings, running and pulling wire building to building. The most enjoyable part of the job has to be the great selection of food available to you during lunch.
Fast paced work environment, many offers for extension of contract, Affordable health benefits, good employee discounts for entertainment, good selection of retirement benefits and opportunities for advancement
The unit appeared quiet and peaceful amid the sparkling new floors. This appearance concealed what could often be described as the quiet desperation of staff nurses trying vigorously to get their work done, often without breaks. CNAs were often sent to other floors leaving nurses to complete all of the tasks, including those that can be performed by non-licensed personnel. The floor had no unit secretary and the charge nurses took patients. In short, staff nurses have very little support. Even housekeeping was spotty at best. Nurses were left to "take out the trash" which would be overflowing on to the dirty patient room floors. Management seemed disinterested in the plight of nursing personnel and only interested in patient satisfaction scores. Training is brief and inadequate while new hires are quickly thrown into the mix and expected to be fully functional. The promise of additional training if one is struggling is an empty one.
It's a very complicated environment to work with. The senior management has failed to implement their taken vision.
Sr. Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – September 5, 2018
They have a very good work/life balanced schedule but have shortfall to established team concept and increase accountability among departments. The management failed to align everybody for a common goal and to established employee accountability for not doing their part before deadline.
Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) – Plano, TX – November 16, 2018
Plenty of opportunity for growth, new career paths and education. There is a diverse group of leadership male, female and many ethnicities. Dignity and respect for all people from the janitor to the CEO is very important at Medical City Health.
Job security with continued hospital growth and being a level 1 trauma center.
Hourly wage could be better, it’s lower than other DFW health systems
Learned more about patients and families, the best method to take care of them, management was good, workplace culture was good, the hardest part is when we are short staffed or have no tech. to help with patient care, the work environment was good but the distance to get there was long and hard to drive due to traffic.
Christmas parties and gift certificates for Thanksgiving
long drive, traffics, and always scared to be late to work
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – February 1, 2018
This company was great years ago! But management is now greedy and care less about the employees! They spend millions on renovations, but will not give employees any type of raise! I honestly think management would get a bonus if they could keep from giving you anymore money! It's high stress with way to much work for the employee's. Always short staffed. Over worked and under paid! Have to fight for your breaks even though they're taken oyt of your pay regardless! Avoid this place.
ER RN (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – September 1, 2018
One of the top 3 worst hospitals I have ever worked and I've been a nurse for over 20 years! There is not enough space for me to even type all the issues. If I could give management a negative star I would-TRUST ME! So many people quit daily it looks like the TSA line at the airport. Heck the managers & directors keep quitting too. If you have been a nurse for more than one hour you will instantly see that your license is on the line daily. As a for- profit hospital system their focus is on numbers and not on patients, safety and definitely not the staff. We all have yet to figure out how upper management, human resources and anyone else who sits at a big long table can say with a straight face this is a great place to work. It's not!
Staff Members Really Try
