Memorial Hermann took over a previous employer. My manager was great and the company was good to work for. They decided they no longer needed my department and laid us off. They did give a lot of notice and offered a great severance package to those who did not move within the company or find a job by the last day.
Over the last few years, there has been a lack of staffing even though the hospital has expanded and the census has increased. As a PRN or supplemental employee, you are not guaranteed a yearly salary increase despite inflation.
I enjoy working at Memorial Hermann. The workplace culture is wonderful, I meet so many different people here and I enjoy learning all I can. The most enjoyable part about my job is providing the best care and service I can while upholding the mission of the system.

Memorial Hermann is a great organization. It is a place where an employee can come in and hit the ground running and learn a great deal. Unfortunately, it's a huge organization and career development and advancement is slim to none.
Great benefits, lots to learn about healthcare industry
No career development or advancement if you are not already a manager Short breaks, healthcare, etc.
Executive Leadership clueless about front line staff

The executive nurse wanted to squeeze blood from a turnip. Constantly short staffed. Managers pulled into floor nursing on a regular basis at all hours of the day or night. Poor work life balance. The CNO had no life except the hospital. She would be there early and stay late everyday and expect others to do the same. I understand working late or early sometimes but not every day with no end in sight. I missed so many important family events because of this.
