    Pros

    Very easy and decent benefits. Probably the best benefits package I've seen.

    Cons

    No room for growth, out of touch superiors and severe punishment/termination when employees voice concerns

    Advice to Management

    Seek your employees, learn about them and how to best support them.

  2. Many expert specialists; not the best work environment.

    Pros

    Renowned specialists throughout the organization. Great training programs, classes, & knowledgeable training staff.

    Cons

    Management has very little support to discipline problematic employees. Training is wonderful but no one in the actual clinics applies what they've learned at the leadership level. Very hostile working environment; if you are an over achiever & want to make a difference, the long standing employees make life very difficult because they are all threatened by anyone who WANTS to work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Don't settle on just tenure with employees; if there is a problem, whether with front line staff or management, allow those things to be dealt with professionally. Support management in removing problematic employees when proper protocol is followed. Don't allow gossip/hostility/bullying from old, tenured employees towards good, new employees you hired to make a difference - serious culture change needed.

    Consider years of experience as some management so people can move up in the institution without having to look elsewhere.

    Pros

    There is a lot of personal growth meaning skills development as well as contact development. The benefits are very good as well. Helping patients and fellow coworkers brings a lot of personal satisfaction.

    Cons

    There is a high turnover rate, the managerial style is very top heavy. What this means is normal staff lacks experience, and there are so many layers of management that there is a disconnect in communication.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication so that agreed upon project deadlines are fully understood at the time of agreement not on the day of expected implementation. Managers directly involved with those who implement the goals of UTSW, have more time to be with there employees not in meetings. Senior managers should have a better defined scope, and less so a free for all.

    Pros

    Great co workers, absolutely the best co workers I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    Poor management and inability to relate on a human level to staff therapists. Working 4 weekend shifts a month is too taxing on employees and their families.
