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.
