    UTMB is a professional institution where work is valued. Technology is used as a tool throughout the HR function. Teams in HR have qualified and experienced poeople.

    Cons

    Galveston is a off all by itself, is a quiet location which is ggod if you are OK with it, if not it is probably the only negative of UTMB.

    Pros

    In the heart of the TMC, the whole area is filled with professionalism, educational excellence and a desire to go next level of care. The university strives to overcome great difficulties, and it shows. Use of modern up to date technology even in their buildings to protect research, patients, the educational process and the whole team is evident. All this because they care.

    Cons

    Old school attitudes sometimes hinder full on progress. Fully dedicated staff requires care from management. This is difficult for those not trained to value their team.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing for the best in leadership. Stay true to the supporters of educational excellence.

    Great benefit and retirement package.

    Lack of professionalism in many departments.

    Advice to Management

    More standards should be but in place & consequences given to those that don't comply. Peer employees should not be a part of the interview and hiring process.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours for research. Great benefits. The culture is diverse and open. Very positive place to work in and has great facilities and training programs. The facilities for research are top notch and safety is a priority to the management. For those who are looking for positions in research or medicine, this is a great place to be.

    Cons

    Working based on government funding makes the research environment a bit unpredictable.
