    Great place to work

    Research Intern (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsGreat advisors, awesome facilities, good professional development, in downtown Houston, Texas!

    ConsThe climate in Houston is very hot. There is often traffic as well going from work to home if you live outside of downtown.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou are doing a great job. More events geared toward younger researchers, scientists, and professionals would do wonders for the social climate.

    amazing place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    Prosincredible access to patient volume and diverse array of resources in terms of translational science collaborators. Good support administratively Gym in the Pickens Tower is an amazing benefit

    ConsState mentality makes it difficult sometimes to get things done
    too many layers of bureaucrats managing those of us who actually produce

    Promote physicians as decision makers, not MBAs
    Realize that our fundamental strength is in clinical care and then leverage that through innovative collaborations with scientists; not the other way around.
