    Pros

    Great benefits, job opportunities and promotions are good.

    Cons

    Claims to be anti-bullying but isn't, reporting it in your work area gets it investigated by the very people who are bullying. Whistleblowers aren't supported.

    Advice to Management

    When a grievance is filed have someone OUTSIDE the department investigate.

    Pros

    Good people and good benefits

    Cons

    Salary is based on what's on your resume and promotions are based on university rules. At UT Southwestern it's common for someone with less experience and education to make more money with more education and experience. There's no way to incentive vise those people who are hard working and dedicated employees over those who just come to work and do the bare minimum.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp to salary and pay structure. UT Southwestern is very out of step with industry standard and will continue to loss good people due to low pay.

    Pros

    It's alright. You truly have to be invested in the investation in order to feel job satisfaction. So if what you are investigating doesn't interest you, doing an 8-5pm is not right for you. I really enjoy my work here because it combines so many modalities and although there is the bench work grind, I never stop learning.

    Cons

    The gains you make at times may seem minimal. You have to celebrate your discoveries even if they are small, which typically they are. If you go in thinking to move mountains, that's a good out look, but don't get upset at the slow progress.

    Advice to Management

    The PI you work for can be great or not. However, if they're not and they like to implement fear to get stuff done, I really don't feel that fear is a great motivator. It may provide short gains of efficiency, but your your employees will actively seek other employment and you will be stuck having to retrain again and again.

    Pros

    Better than floor nursing in that there's a lot less stress from the patients. Good stepping stone towards research administration.

    Cons

    Ridiculous office politics. I'm getting tired of it. Charging employees to park and then having tiny garages with no space.

    Advice to Management

    Actually visit your clinic now and again, and not just to tell us something huge is changing.
