    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.

    Pros

    Benefits are very good.

    Cons

    Management from executive level has a disconnect with the employees through out campus.

    Advice to Management

    Departmental management should have more authority than given.

    Pros

    Good benefits, as long as you're not injured.

    Cons

    Pay well below average for the position, 2 phlebotomist for 5000 inmates. Impossible expectations. After getting injured on the job, while on leave I was required to pay 700.00 a month for insurance(just for me) with no income.

    Advice to Management

    Hire management that either has clinical experience or is willing to listen to employees with clinical experience. It is impossible to draw 90+ patients in under 5 hours when 90% are IV drug users. It is impossible to catch up with a constant addition of new orders when you start the job over 6 months (and thousands of tests) behind.


  11. good place to work at
