    Pros

    incredible access to patient volume and diverse array of resources in terms of translational science collaborators. Good support administratively Gym in the Pickens Tower is an amazing benefit

    Cons

    State mentality makes it difficult sometimes to get things done
    too many layers of bureaucrats managing those of us who actually produce

    Advice to Management

    Diminish layers of bureaucracy
    Promote physicians as decision makers, not MBAs
    Realize that our fundamental strength is in clinical care and then leverage that through innovative collaborations with scientists; not the other way around.
