This is a pediatric hospital that is dedicated to its employees and patients
Registered Nurse Float Pool (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXDecember 27, 2018
The culture of this hospital is one of patient centered care and family centered care. The doctors and staff of the hospital are focused on the overall well being of the patients and the families as they heal from illness and even loss. The hospital follows patients and families well after the healing has ended and the losses are felt. This culture has made a dedicated staff of nurses and doctors that are loyal to the hospital and the patients for many years. The turnover rate in this hospital compared to other not for profit large hospitals is comparatively low. This shows the dedication to the patient population and the employees by the leadership of the hospital.
Pros
Many opportunities for growth in the nursing field
Cons
This is a difficult but rewarding career.

Great Hospital
Emergency room nurse (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXSeptember 22, 2018
A great hospital to work for and be a part of a beautiful mission. Cons have to do with budgeting and staffing. That is a universal nursing unit deal I believe. Constantly learning and things are constantly developing to hopefully make process smoother for health care providers and patients. Sometimes can be a lot to keep up with and a lot of training, but it is all for a good cause. Benefits are pretty good. Management is unit specific.
Pros
Career development and advancement, benefits
Cons
Short breaks, demanding

Great company with only a few drawbacks!
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 28, 2018
The managenent is awesome even though it is a little top heavy and has a bit of turnover at the executive level of leadership. Benefits as a whole are great as they are very family oriented and dont just play lip service to the idea of work/life balance. Insurance benefits are a bit subpar for the costs but are not the worst I've ever seen at that cost either. Just not great. The only other problem is an ill-defined process for advancement of internal applicants ESPECIALLY for employees below management level and/or in community settings such as West Campus where I was. I was literally told by the Director of Talent Acquisition that the only advantage current employees receive in applying for positions was that their applications moved to the top of the pile but even that did not guarantee an interview, much less a job. This was truly the main frustration I had with the company. Other than that though, it was a great place to work with great people and I would recommend it as a place of employment to ANYONE!
Pros
Focus on work-life balance and very family oriented.
Cons
Medical insurance is below what other comparable organizations offer, there is no defined advancement pathways for current employees that fall below management level.

Excellent Hospital for children
Manager- Business Operations and Support Services (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 5, 2018
Wonderful institution for children’s medical needs. Management and leadership of the organization should prepare strategic plans to advance non exempt employees which have been with the organization five years or more. There is very limited movement in the organization for promotion or career advancement. Most senior level positions have been held by the same staff in some areas for 25 plus years.. leaving nowhere for other leaders to advance forward.
Pros
Shuttle service, near downtown
Cons
Leadership communication

Management is horrible
Ambulatory Service Representative II (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 20, 2018
while there are great doctors and big variety of specialties, the environment and the culture is horrible. Management will promote very easily while employees will have to fight over one promotion/position. The only things that managers are care for is how to make money. They won't invest in their employees and will always find away to blame someone else for their wrong. Favoritism is a big issue, managers will do above and beyond to please one person while the rest might suffer from it.
Pros
good benefit
Cons
everything else

NSR I Storeroom (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 6, 2018
Texas Children's has a very diverse culture with all type of different walks in life. Adjusting to culture and background can be very difficult at times, but as you grow and learn with the people you see and work with everyday is a very good learning experience. Management was some what effective dealing with personal and other issues. The hardest part of the job was just really dealing with sick children knowing that you can make a difference in they lives and putting a smile on they face because they really go through so much in life at an early age,
Pros
Benefits, Career Advancement
Cons
Working short staff

Protection Force Sergeant (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 15, 2018
Great company culture, exceptional benefits, and stable job security below the executive level. The only con I can name is that the organization is so large, interdepartmental communication suffers at times.

LVN Nurse (Former Employee) –  Conroe, TXSeptember 14, 2018
This clinic used to be a great place to work. The set up flowed. Staff enjoyed working together. Management changed and so did the work environment . Staff is no longer happy. The staff is over worked and under appreciated. The company itself is wonderful. Plenty of education opportunities. Only problem is they are in the medical center. Benefits and salary were great by today’s standards.
Pros
The company is wonderful to work for
Cons
Only manger

busy but very productive and challenging at times
Certified Nursing Assistant/Unit Secretary (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 26, 2018
a typical night at work consist of getting report about both the unit and the assignment you have for the night. Making sure if your area has an admit bedspace to get all the items that are needed to fulfill this potential admission. There may be a possibility of running labs to the laboratory or getting blood from the blood bank. I enjoy working at TCH because it's a fun place to work but it can be challenging sometimes because of the individuals you are working with
Pros
good place to work, great benefits
Cons
management can be a little better, to many clicks/friendships in leadership

Pharmacy dept
Phamacy tech (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 2, 2018
Overall TCH is great hospital but the pharmacy department’s values do not match with the hospital. The people at TCH pharmacy are ghetto, bullies and disorganized. Especially the training department. After your first week of orientation you are on your own. Nobody seems to care what happens to you thereafter. Pharmacy department has a sink or swim mentality and ppl refuse to help or get mad if you ask a question. Thank goodness you can transfer within six months. Every where else in the hosptial seems to a good place to work minus the pharmacy department it is a trashy ghetto place to work!!!
Pros
Pay, lunch breaks, 401k, pension and benefits
Cons
Pharmacy

The place and atmosphere is rushed, yet great
Physical Medicine & Rehab Intern (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 16, 2018
It was great to work with kids and the people here as they're extremely friendly and helpful. Now, I was cursed to work with someone who was EXTREMELY HARD to work with as she lied to the people where I report my internship experience too. Everyone else is great to work with, there are some people who are very stuck up and criticize so bad. Just be nice to those people and don't be immature like they are. I've met LOTS of people in the Physical Medicine & Rehab department and only came across about 3 of those kinds of people. Overall the experience was alright, I still would recommend this as a place of work as the benefits are surely worth it. It's great to work within a rushed hospital environment to a slow paced administration department. Great experience to know what you like and don't like in a job.
Pros
Great friendships
Cons
Poor management

The company truly cares about the employees. Middle management is tough as they are often caught in the middle. The nursing leaders in the Neonatal Units and Women's Services units were great with employee development
Pros
great compensation

Registered Medical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 27, 2018
Great place to work for with awesome benefits and lots of room for advancement. A place where you can balance work and home life. Pay is great. They pay for tuition reimbursement. Many places to transfer to with the Houston area with locations in Katy and Woodlands. So many wonderful things about this company. Working with great families and bubbly environment.

Fast Paced
Front Office Specialist I (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 2, 2019
Working at one of the clinics for Texas Children's was a great learning opportunity. It was a new experience working in a children's clinic, and not having children made it a little more of a challenge. However, there are many tools provided to assist you with learning. The culture for the most part was changing due to new management. The clientele consisted of a mixture of lower to upper middle class with some of Houston's more recognizable socialites including celebrities. This array of customers made for interesting encounters at times. Of course the more affluent customers were very demanding and sometimes impatient and condescending. They were pretty vocal about not wanting to complete the necessary forms the clinic needed to remain compliant with the state and the necessary guidelines. Some of them were on first name basis with a few of the physicians as they resided in the same neighborhoods with them. This sometimes made the environment stressful in that they would demand to be seen without appointments and would often miss the appointments they scheduled. There was little to no cohesiveness among the staff, and this may have been because of past leadership; but it was severely divided. From the nurses, the medical assistants, to the doctors, and the front office staff. The new management was desperately trying to change this. If you made a mistake you were shamed and the mistake magnified before the learning opportunity approach was taken. Again, the new management was really trying to reverse these behaviors. I think there were just a few unhappy people working at  more... the facility and allowed that to spill over into their work. Outside of the unhappy co workers, management was always understanding and extremely supportive; and there were some physicians, medical assistants, and nurses that enjoyed their job and were very nice to work with. I always had the tools I needed to succeed.  less
Pros
Compensation, management, wonderful HR Dept
Cons
Hours, tight working spaces for call handling, call center needed to handle calls, scheduling conflicts for so many physicians.
