Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at UTHealth full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Benefits are a plus. State of Texas job. 8 to 5 job. Tuition reimbursement is offered.

Cons

Safety is a challenging topic to preach in an academic and research institution. Money always seems to be an issue for everything. 0-3% raises annually if that. No advancement in positions. Once a specialist always a specialist.

Advice to Management

Interact with your staff more so you are in the loop. Decisions should not take months or need a supporting thesis.

    I have been working at UTHealth full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Laid-back atmosphere; Relaxed work environment; Great peer group of employees; Reimbursement for tuition and professional certifications; Great work to life ratio

    Cons

    Limited salary potential; Virtually no chance of advancement or cross-training; Bonuses are rare and of little value; High turnover rate; Ask for a high wage in your interview because you won't get a salary increase!

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to allow for cross-training of specialties. Employees are only responsible for a small portion of the safety role. Also, I think management should provide more competitive salary ranges. I found out why I was told that the average person in my position only stays for 1-3 years. I could deal with my dissatisfaction if I felt that I was being paid what I am worth.

    I have been working at UTHealth full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, lots of support from the training departments, great location, many opportunities to learn from other insitutions.

    Cons

    No social environment, very limited collaboration within the university, poor retention benefits, lack of ameneties (not even free coffee), more focused on staff retention than research talent retention.

    Advice to Management

    Add some things to the work location that will keep the talent interested in staying at work for longer periods of time.
