    Pros

    great place to start your career (and continue!). great wellness center..its free. everyone seems to be nice so far and there is a lot of work to jump in on. you will not be bored if you work here.

    Cons

    Parking is expensive like all TMC organizations. Compensation could be updated to reflect cost of living increase in Houston.

    Advice to Management

    Consider readjusting compensation to reflect the rising cost of living in Houston. Employees (non-physician) will have to move south or west to afford housing. this will cause long commutes and dissatisfied employees. The only other option would be to implement a shuttle service like Mayo clinic (Minneapolis to Rochester). It has wifi and is extremely discounted for employees. This would solve parking issues and decrease the demand for higher compensation.

    Pros

    Pros include the ability for growth within the company and the benefits were great! Plus there is a gym that employees can use that is free of charge!

    Cons

    I hated paying for parking, that was my biggest issue. Also certain supervisors/managers do not want to see you grow so don't expect a hand out!

    Pros

    Work is challenging, but great opportunities for growth. Pretty good benefits.

    Cons

    Politics and meetings. Depending on your own work-ethic, work-life balance can be challenging due to the number of initiatives the institution embarks simultaneously.

    Advice to Management

    Base decisions on facts and core values.
