Pros
  • It is in a great location in the Texas Medical Center which allows collaboration between numerous research hospitals like UT, Methodist, M (in 39 reviews)

  • The benefits are good, particularly the PTO which rewards you the longer you stay with the company (in 24 reviews)

Cons
  • Work/life balance depends on the department but I'd say overall is good (in 10 reviews)

  • High cost of living for the medical center and heavy traffic for commuters (in 11 reviews)

    I have been working at Baylor College of Medicine full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I think working at a place like BCM is very department-dependent. The College as a
    whole is a good employer. They offer outstanding benefits and in my experience, offer competitive pay and I've gotten a raise every year. Any experience in a job is pretty much 100% driven by a person's supervisor. Mine is awesome, so I feel good about BCM.

    Cons

    Not very many holidays offered, but do give enough time off. Most of the cons I'd list have to do with my specific department, which is unfair to the College itself.

    Advice to Management

    Their Finance department (for the College, not my department) is HORRIBLE. The main reason for me giving them 4 stars instead of five. My adive to management, if indeed management is even "listening", is to completely revamp that department, their systems, and processes. It's almost like nothing has changed since the 80's (I would say earlier, but they do have computers).
