    Great ideas for improvement, not the best execution

    Research Scientist (Current Employee) San Antonio, TX

    Pros-benefits are decent for a school system
    -staff are attentive to concerns

    Cons-good ideas for improving the academic programs or the research funding...but they don't pan out. Seems like the values are there but the logistics and nitty gritty details are where steering committees get mired

    No room for growth

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDepending on the area, some great staff. Work can be interesting and the benefits are decent. Also, works with the community, which is a positive thing. Greatly enjoyed the smoke free campus.

    ConsSalary is far below similar jobs. Many back door hiring practices. No chance for growth or advancement unless you change jobs. No bonuses or raises due to cutbacks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe careful of who you hire. Stop so many shady back door hiring practices.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Frustrating

    Advice to Senior ManagementLaid off leadership

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ConsLeadership does not listen , favoritism rule, sometime hard to complete or do the work because of this , fear because they don't know the job

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    nice, but no where to move up.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere is a lot going on and many places to get involved in collaborative, inter-disciplinary science.

    ConsNo advancement for researchers without clinical degrees. Must fully fund your salary with grants.

    Bad Place for Research

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Current Employee) San Antonio, TX

    ProsMany dedicated faculty have outstanding research programs. Many post-docs find positions on staff.

    ConsEverything is being swept into the medical school, which is run by people who know nothing about research. Many excellent research faculty are leaving. Still a good place for a post-doc if you get a good mentor, but I wouldn't advise sticking around.

    Isolationist environment.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsRelatively low stress environment. Friendly supervisors.

    ConsLow probability of advancement. Low pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrim the fat. Some positions do not need to be here. Save money or spread the wealth to fewer more hard working and dedicated employees.
