    Pros

    UT Southwestern offers a stable work environment.

    Cons

    UT Southwestern values longevity which means that some employees feel so secure in their employment there that they don't strive to do a good job. This can be very frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Foster an environment of striving to do better. Lead in this by example and reward those whom you see also striving to improve performance. Don't settle for "the way we have always done it".

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at UT Southwestern Medical Center (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked for UTSW hospitals for 6.5 years. Pros: Academic environment, doing important work Access to highly competent and dedicated healthcare professionals Good pension plan, for those who plan on being a state employee for a long period of time

    Cons

    The triple combination of regulations put on hospitals, along with the bureaucracy typical to educational institutions, combined with being a state institution makes for a painfully slow-moving and tough to change workplace.
