    I worked at UTHealth Houston

    Pros

    Benefit, Some enjoyable coworkers, great physical location, world's largest medical center, revolutionary research

    Cons

    Employees working for program for years were threatened by new knowledge, dept not friendly to new employees, fired after nearly two months, review completely inaccurate, no accountability to management, not allowed to be sick even if in the ER twice, no room to call outside departments for assistance, wanted me to make manuals for every part that my job entitled, not open to room or improvement, no open-door policy, seniority is more important than having the job done right, auditing was not tolerated even if your job needed it, no structure, on reason for firing due to not taking a lunch break during a normal lunch time but having to stay until 5 still for validations/duties - 4 PM was my lunch time but I was expected to stay past five to help with shipping with no lunch time and no additional compensation, leave was exhausted due to extreme illness and that was a written excuse when there was only one recorded leave time, no inventory management, no organization, no structure, much red tape to handle one task, no efficiency, no effectiveness, everything is a priority and even if you work by deadlines it is not acceptable, took nearly two months to receive full access to FMS, the main software needed to complete job tasks, finally received FMS access but still had to complete four more tracings to use the software with no time to complete it due to many RTA and reimbursement worksheets as a cause of much traveling by employees, program outdated, employees stuck in old ways, takes 20 emails, 3 phone calls and two face-to-face conversations to complete one task, many small problems that add to a frustrating work environment, little pay, no rewards, rude coworkers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have an open-door policy, seniority shouldn't always matter if experience from another higher education institute or companies is suggested, listen to beginning of the year reviews, listen to opinions/advice, change may not be liked but it is needed for improvement, figure out a better strategic management to configure better job satisfaction, worker relationships, efficiency, and effectiveness with jobs, before an immediate work release understand employees frustration with job tasks and teach on-the-job training, employee retention is important with a better work environment, small problems can be easily fixed with a better strategic management plan
