    I have been working at The University of Texas Medical Branch full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pros would be decent compensation. You have quite a few paid holidays throughout the year, plus paid sick time and vacation.. They pay for your medical insurance, so you only have to pay for anyone else in your family that you add on.

    Cons

    When I was first hired, I was hired as a contractor, so I was not eligible for benefits. My contact only lasted for a few months before I was brought on full-time, but some employees stay contract for years and never are given benefits and paid holidays.

    Pros

    Health Insurance is provided for free. Dental and Vision are optional and come out of paycheck. Bi-Weekly payments.

    Cons

    There are times when you must travel from the desktop area (Galveston) and rotate over to the help desk area (Clear Lake) for a week or two at a time, even though you're perfectly capable of doing help desk support at Galveston also.
