I worked at The University of Texas Medical Branch

Pros

Cost of living raises are given annually, based on employee performance evaluation scores. Benefits and retirement package are very good. They have a great gym and pool for students and employees.

Cons

Promotions are not given for merit, dedication, or knowledge. Most promotions are given for seniority and/or favoritism. Some managers are friends with subordinates and all employees aren't held to the same set of rules. There's not enough communication between clinical areas, causing animosity & rudeness between staff. Many departments stay chronically understaffed. Oh, and every few years there's a large layoff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give employees who do an excellent job some recognition occasionally. Reform the way promotions are given. Educate or demote managers & supervisors who are unprofessional. Do something to improve communication between clinical areas.
