    Pros

    Good reputation as being ranked number one in USA
    Lots of specialties
    Good hospital for cancer treatment
    New technologies
    Sponsor H1B visas

    Cons

    Very poor management. Predominantly hispanic community. They spend a lot of money on buildings and useless meetings and conferences but don't even pay a little for coffee. Clinical side gets all the attention, research people are being exploited. Very low payscale for PhD candidates and post doctoral fellows. On-campus housing is shared with UT-Houston and there is a very long waiting list. Employees need to pay for parking.

    Advice to Management

    Match the payscale for research jobs to national standards and compensate for annual inflation rates and rising market prices. Affordable on-campus housing is needed. Free parking for employees and trainees. Open all jobs to outside competition and be fair with the selection criteria. How will you achieve diversity if you do not recruit outside talents.
