Very cutthroat environment to work in or be part of , if you dont't click with the popular people there. This was a topic that was discussed in my nursing program. That Dell Children's was the worst of all Seton facilities and that management did nothing to resolve thisi issue. poor poor management
some good qualified RN's who actually like working rather than gossiping.
gossip gossip gossip.. Management also gossips... big time
The coworkers are awesome! The management however in my department had no knowledge of what I actually did therefore could not help me at all. Because he had never did my job or the low jobs of his department, he wasn't any help at all. He was more of a pest; a computer nerd who had no interpersonal skills or knew how to manage people who all came from management positions.
Project Executive (Former Employee) – Austin – February 28, 2018
My typical work day included multiple planning meetings. Very busy coordinating operational and strategic planning. Responsibility extended to community relations. My responsibility and performance was judged on analytics. The organization promoted a respectful work environment. The hardest part of my job was a constant of getting capital resource. The most enjoyable was working with passionate people who cared deeply about the patients and their well being.
Education is valued and furthering one's education is encouraged, with tuition reimbursement and advancement. Evidenced based principles are used in patient care. Full service lab and radiology department. Small town hospital with the support of the Seton family of Hospitals out of Austin.
recommend to anyone looking for a positive experience
DIRECTOR OF SETON BRAIN & SPINE INSTITUTE (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – February 20, 2018
Was a wonderful environment, executive leadership was supportive and professional. The new medical school and hospital is a big asset to any leader. Likely the most positive leadership experience I have had in my 30+ year experience.
Lots of plans but rarely completed or brought to fruition. Highly matrixed and political organization. Leadership and CEO were out of touch (at the time I was there but has changed since) routine layoffs when budgets are not met -punishing workers instead of those in charge of the budgets (managers). It is hard to believe in the mission when people are seen as capital and revenue versus human beings.
good benefits and many great co-workers
constantly changing direction without finishing one, inadequate thought about how this impacts associates and patients
Director of Compliance (Current Employee) – Round Rock, TX – February 9, 2018
All healthcare organizations are experiencing change right now and Seton is no different, but they are taking innovative steps to bring healthcare to the community in ways that are more convenient to the patient. This transition away from the inpatient hospital setting will change the face of healthcare as we know it.
Struggling management, low pay, little opportunity for growth/advancement
GME Program coordinator (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – February 1, 2018
I worked as a Program Coordinator and I do not recommend that position at Seton. I had previous PC experience and love being a Program Coordinator: constantly improving things, interacting between the school and other parts of the hospital/community, working with the wonderful physicians. I always have fun recruiting, even if it's stressful at times. And you are literally shaping the future of healthcare.
Coming to Seton, I took a large pay cut, even after negotiating. While I love my Director, faculty, residents, other coordinators, the management is not helpful: Unresponsive to emails. Lies to our face in meetings, when in attendance. Does not communicate corporate changes effectively. Some reorganization is needed in the program. Duties and number of residents are not evenly spread. Pay is lower than other area programs.
Recently they hired someone to help us with administrative tasks, which was very helpful, but we have no manager to train new coordinators, to help find solutions to the ever-changing landscape as Seton becomes Ascension (changing all the software/policies/forms/contacts), and to advocate for us at the meetings we're not invited to.
Busy start. I learned so much at Seton being up close and working with trauma patients all those years. Patience , gratitude,empathy plus lot of on the job skills. Management communicated with staff daily and at times jump in when necessary.It was a very diverse and respectable place to work. The hardest part of the job was losing a patient.There were plenty areas of the job that was enjoyable, seeing a patient get better or walking or talking again. I really loved working at Seton.
Accounts Payable Rep. Sr (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – January 27, 2018
Was employed with Seton for 36 years and wanted to continue there, but unable to due to outsourcing of job. Was given option to apply with new company Rc1 in Michigan or apply for other positions within Seton, such as patient admitting representatives.
I was part of a mass exodus that occurred in 2017. Staffing levels are so low that clinical staff are stretched dangerously thin. There is no support staff (desk clerk, stocking agents, etc.), these jobs all fall to clinical staff. I made the decision to leave because I felt I wasn't able to safely do my job. I was increasingly afraid that a patient would get hurt because I wasn't able to spend the appropriate amount of time with them and that I would be blamed for it. Even the Nurse Manager got fed up and left.
Enviroment not fun. Customers, patients wonderful. job functions enjoyable
Food Service Worker (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – January 24, 2018
Best part was to interact with patients and customers. No teamwork and hostile environment. Management was afraid to address issues that lead to various forms of harassment. Good food, liked helping the cooks prep, functioned on front grill, acted as diet clerk when needed. Functioned on catering events. Love the room service that give me a time to meet patients.
Hostile environment with no manageral control over it.
Mental Health Technician (CA) (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – January 22, 2018
Just not good management, Seton Shoal hospital have a big turn around in employment due to poor management. Every time you turn around we have a new manager or supervisor. They come in and change everything according to their likes without first getting to know the area nad how it works.
Volunteer (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – January 18, 2018
I appreciate the warm hospitality our nurses provide and their hard work at Seton Medical Center. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping them organize and restock their supplies. It's the least I can do for our amazing nurses at Seton Hospital.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – SMCA – January 16, 2018
