    The best benefit of working at UT Southwestern is the health benefits. They are included as a part of your compensation package.

    Cons

    The pay is really not that great and unfortunately UT southwestern does not promote hiring and promoting from within the organization.

    Pros

    Co-workers and the staff that work for the organization are great!

    Cons

    Bad, I mean horrible management. Managers are terrible. Parking is $440 a year. Compensation is low. Do not think that you can get promoted at this organization. They want you to stay in your position. Yes they do offer opportunities to move to different locations but they are lateral moves more than likely and you will not get compensated for such as move.

    I have been working at UT Southwestern Medical Center full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    UTSW pay for health benefits and I assist a team of physicians that I enjoy working for/with,this is what I consider a definite PRO.

    Cons

    My management lacked the basic managerial skills necessary to mentor and grow people. They are all about self growth and prosperity. The overall culture of Internal Medicine seems to be very unstable and in desperate need of a revamp.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management from my perspective isn't setting a good example. I have NO desire to be in upper management within the UTSW organization based on the actions and behavior of the people that are currently in place. Actually I think I would make a better manager than either of my upper managers, simply because I want to know just as much as those underneath me and I would make sure that they are growing toward their individual career goals. That's not happening with me, via my upper management.
