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.

    Pros

    UT-HSC is not a bad place to work, hours are pretty flexible but the nature of research being what it is you can also work some long hours and weekends to meet deadlines. Its a pretty informal working environment.

    Cons

    It is an academic institution so things like salaries are not as high as in industry. But again hours are flexible, vacation packages are pretty good. Vacation days do not cancel at the end of each year but roll into the following year.
