Work with some great and diverse people, the new facilities are nice, commitment to those wanting to further their education

food quality depends on where you are on campus, it's a crap shoot in terms of management within the various departments. Some are great some suck.

    Pros

    The benefits are probably the best in the Texas Medical Center, and the hours are usually properly structured and managed.

    Cons

    The opportunities for raises and/or advancement are very strictly structured and follow very specific guidelines, so while it's not impossible to move up and/or branch out, it takes a very long time. It is very difficult to branch out into/learn about any area which does not EXACTLY match your specific job's description.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, however they are easily replicated elsewhere. Work efforts are not challenging so its easy to maintain a work-life balance

    Cons

    Politics and image trumps skill and work ethic. IT leadership lacks necessary IT skills. Vendors do most of the work and mostly they lack the necessary IT skills. Raises are below current national levels. Significant brain drain. Oppressive, indifferent, erratic management style. No vision. Poor communication. The employee is always to blame. No technical career path. Embarrassingly low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on providing what is necessary now, not what might be the next big thing in 10 years. Treat people with respect. Provide incentive for people to perform. Provide challenging goals and corresponding work efforts. Stop micromanaging. Stop gathering metrics you cannot objectively interpret.
