I have been working at University of Tennessee Health Science Center

Pros

Once hired impossible to get fired.

Cons

HR/administration is completly useless. Screwup ALL paperwork repeatedly.The university REALLY needs to "clean house". Waste of taxpayers' money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean house. Take inventory of what your faculty and especially staff REALLY do and how productive they REALLY are.

    I worked at University of Tennessee Health Science Center

    Pros

    Benefits...great benefits. Time off is fantastic. The institution shuts down the week of Christmas and New Years. The day after thanksgiving as well. 2 vacation days a month and one sick day too. Thus, you almost get five weeks vacation time a year.

    Cons

    Government job. Incompetence runs throughout the organization and it doesn't skip levels of hierarchy. There are Dumb @$$ from top to bottom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Saying something is a waste of my time. They would never listen anyway, thus, this is my twenty words summed: You Suck...

    I have been working at University of Tennessee Health Science Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You can literally do ANYTHING (or nothing at all) and not get fired.

    Cons

    Generally low pay even for Memphis - St. Jude pays about 60% more for equivalent hourly positions and has better benefits. Administration will listen to employee feedback, yet nothing is ever done. Most administrative staff are incompetent and offices constantly lose paperwork. No workplace culture. Generally, UTHSC is just a very frustrating place to work and there are no real "pros" that can distract you from how miserable this place is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of people who are incompetent or train them and hold them to higher standards. Make an effort to actually follow through on suggestions after asking for employee feedback.
