    Pros

    Great growth opportunity if you are a hard worker. If you think you are getting into a safe government job and don't have to excel to keep your job, this isn't the place for you. UTHealth has high standards and everyone expects their colleague to pull their own weight.

    Cons

    Salary increases are restrained so your financial growth will be steady but slow.

    Pros

    Great state of Texas benefits. Flexible Schedule.

    Cons

    Low salary, high stress environment where creativity is not appreciated. This sort of obtuse approach often leads to disgruntled postdocs and research staff.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people's ideas. Just because an approach works for a senior investigator how received a PhD in the 1970's, it does not mean that it will in today's environment.

  3. A very positive, nurturing learning experience.

    Pros

    Heavy focus on academic qualifications, support for studies, work is strongly correlated to science.

    Cons

    Rigid structures can sometimes promote bureaucracy, clients are student researchers.

    Advice to Management

    Try to negotiate better salaries and working conditions for employees. I know it may difficult in that organizational framework.

    Pros

    Good research atmosphere, Most of the PI have good funding or departmental backing.

    Cons

    Low pay. Infact with the amount of hours an RA works, the wage is less than minimum/hr.
    Parking is expensive.
    No bonus like MD Anderson.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the base pay for RA's
    Discounted parking for Research staff.

    Pros

    Nice working environment and great atmosphere. Holiday parties and cultural fairs. Not in the middle of the Texas Medical Center so it is less chaotic.

    Cons

    Parking of course is pricy and there are graduate students everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Offer discounted parking to staff.

    Pros

    Big University with all of the pros that come with that kind of work place. Good benefits and time off. Stable. Pay was sub par, but the benefits outweigh that aspect.

    Cons

    Not particularly exciting environment to work in. Pretty bureaucratic and formal. Not a great deal of access to career development opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Consider investing more into your employees. You can't really be top tier if your only focused on image and not actual results.

    Pros

    State benefits are hard to beat and managers generally maintain a healthy work life balance for their employees.

    Cons

    Pay is a bit low compared to other employers in the medical center, but it's offset by great benefits.

  11. Relaxed Environment

    Pros

    Tasks are routine-based and not challenging at all. Relaxed office environment and friendly employees. Work under no competition and no pressure.

    Cons

    Boring atmosphere, almost no humor in the office. People rarely think out of the box; lack of creativity and energy. High turnover rate. Low wage.
