    Pros

    Continously learning. Diversity. Have all the tools needed. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    Experienced from Mays Clinic at a particular department. If you are not friends with your boss or colleagues (outside work), not the favorite, or just being dislike because of your "beliefs", no matter how hard you put your heart into helping patients, the management will find ways to make your life miserable by being called about mistakes while others (they like) gets away. No voice to say anything because Directors/Management's are close FRIENDS with HR. They don't promote growth in education especially if you wanted to transfer because HR will inform your department. Then they will put you on notice for one year. They have high turn over rate in that particular department. They will put lies in your evaluation goals. They would hire someone outside from a restaurant with no experience for the same position you have and pay her double amount of your salary maybe because she is a friend or a family member (you do not matter). If you give your 2 weeks notice, expect that you will be terminated.

    Advice to Management

    If you treat your employees with unfairness, your department will suffer especially the patients. I am not surprised if your employees keeps quiting/leaving. I hope that all the wrong things you have done to your employees will soon bite you back.

    Pros

    We have great benefits (insurance, holidays, PTO, education reimbursement) with friendly coworkers and flexible hours. We also participate in the Texas teacher retirement fund.

    Cons

    This job can be stressful and demands complete attention to details. More thimgs around the lab could be automated to increase efficiency.

    Advice to Management

    Great job! The managers frequently hand out praise and show their appreciation for our hard work. If you're not getting praised here, you might need to reevaluate your work.

    Pros

    The patients are SO awesome! They keep you going many days. A lot of the staff are awesome and great at what they do also. You can learn a lot. The talent and effort to work together among a vast majority of peers are excellent. I love when I see people coming together to help a patient that may have special complications.

    Cons

    It seems as if you can be trapped into a certain type of underling role with no hope to really surfacing if you're ambitious.

    Advice to Management

    Respect is critical to people. When people don't feel respected or rewarded and constantly feel as if they cannot do anything right it takes a toll on morale.
