    Relaxed environment, but poor communication.

    Web Development Specialist (Current Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsRelaxed environment, great coworkers, and a general movement toward updated technologies. Great benefits for full-time employees. Job security. My manager is awesome, very understanding and accommodating of a good work/life balance.

    ConsStill very outdated in many areas, poor opportunities for full-time employment or advancement, low salary range for full-time employees. Poor communication between departments and managers, very bureaucratic inner workings. Difficult change management system.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCould improve communication standards across departments and between managers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Horrible place to work

    Research (Current Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsThey put the salary on their website, which is rare. Most companies don't do that. Also, the health benefits are pretty good, and it's pretty good job security.

    ConsHorrible work/life balance. Very hard to schedule off and LOTS of rules and red tape with employees. They treat you like a number and there's a lot of gossip, politics, and they will overwork you. All in all, there are a lot of other hospitals I would recommend to work for that treat their employees way better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementActually listen to your employees. If they're happy, they will work harder. If you ignore their concerns or don't give them promotions/raises after years of dedicated service, it will show in their work. Offer more work/life balance and scheduling off should be way easier. Do NOT LET EMPLOYEES COME TO WORK SICK!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Neither here nor there

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThey have a powerful mission- making cancer history. It makes you feel like your a part of something huge, bigger than yourself

    ConsBureaucracy, red tape, you could get in your work and just keep going 'cause everyone is too busy to stop for a minute. The skills are present, personality? especially when it comes to interdepartmental stuff?....it could be better.
