    I worked at Baylor College of Medicine as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Exciting projects, incredible researchers, interesting seminars

    Cons

    You don't really have time to complete a whole project over just 2 months; quality of experience depends on lab members

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to have more options about which lab you can join

    Pros

    They had great resources and allowed me to learn and cultivate skills while also observing doctors that are practicing their trade in a world renown institution.

    Cons

    The buildings and facilities are very old and lack inspiration. The overall work environment was fairly cramp. They were are undergoing restructuring at the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To get a bigger space to operate while also seeking out more opportunities to partner with nearby institutions so generate more revenue.

    I worked at Baylor College of Medicine

    Pros

    People in almost every department were very nice. I would work there again happily. Benefits package is very good. I was able to work a flexible schedule which helped my work/life balance quite a bit. I had a great manager!

    Cons

    A little bit bureaucratic, getting a process changed is laborious. Pay is a little low, but work/life balance made up for that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A few departments made some inroads into work/life balance, consider pushing that further throughout the organization as BCM is a non-profit, thus aggressive wages would be difficult to do.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, superb physicians, wonderful to be part of the modern advances in medicine.

    Cons

    Leadership at the top level is very poor.. Departmental Administrator was fabulous, recognizes the value of an employee... yet, even with excellent reviews the Chief of the department seems to have the final decision to terminate an employee when they are not even familiar with the work ethics of the individual.
