- The Methodist Hospital05.Jun 2020
The Houston Methodist was an extremely diverse organization. Employees were welcome regardless of ethnicity, religious beliefs, or physical handicaps.
Support from management
Management was not supportive, they were more focused on micromanaging to account for where they were lacking in knowledge.
In my department specifically, there was not a feeling of cohesiveness.
Freedom to work independently
Many new staff members were brought in with the expectation of proper training. Nee supervisors and new managers were not capable of providing adequate training, therefore, it was impossible for new staff members to successfully work independently.
In my last 3 years with the Methodist, the billing department was centralized, removing all billing staff from current departments and centralizing billing. Management was new and also many new staff members. Communication between staff and management was a challenge.
Methodist is an extremely diverse organization with many opportunities for women.
Attitude towards older colleagues
In my department specifically, I witnessed some of the senior employees pressured due to inability to keep ip with productivity goals, resulting in verbal communications and eventually write ups.
The Methodist does provide training and courses for personal development to assist with professional growth.
Overall compensation for your work
I believe that I was compensated fairly.
Office / Work Environment
My work environment was adequate.
The Methodist was a no smoking campus to prevent smoke exposure to fellow employees or patients.
The Houston Methodist as a whole prioritized work-life balance, mental and physical health.
Although, I was dissatisfied with my current department, The Methodist is a great place to work. I would eventually return in another position.
The Methodist was handicap accessible due to we catered to patients with various ailments.
Patient and employee safety was a primary focus of the Methodist Hospital.
I was an insurance collector for 13 years with the organization. My job was fairly easy, not extremely challenging.
Inclusive / Diverse
I felt like I was valued by Methodist, but not my department.
Suggestions for improvement
- When creating a new department, it’s important to have experienced management if you have new supervisors and staff. You cannot be successful if leadership is not able to direct staff members.
What I like about the company
I worked with the Methodist Hospital for 13 years, began as front desk check-in and check-out. I was promoted 4 times during my time there. The Methodist showed that patient and employee satisfaction was priority through rewards, such as bonuses, employee events, and yearly raises.
What I dislike about the company
I disapproved of how unorganized my current department was. It was definitely not a true representation of the Methodist or their core values.
