      Overworked and undercompensated

      Oct 18, 2017 - Research Assistant II in Houston, TX
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The people that I work with directly are understanding, helpful, creative and extremely intelligent. The research facilities are pretty good, though many cutting edge research technologies are notably absent (Microisolator CMP facilities, CyTOF, NGS, High-res MS, cell culture validation services)

      Cons

      * Cliff vesting schedule for retirement is not great, and management fees are sky high. * vision coverage is a joke. * dental coverage is mediocre * rx coverage heavily restricts pharmacy choice for certain prescriptions * PTO is limited, and incentivizes sick employees to come to work, which has caused me to get sick on more than one occasion. * Work/life balance is bad. Overwork is a serious problem, and is unaddressed even if you bring it up. My salary is competitive for the area, but when distributed over the hours I work, calculates out to less than minimum wage. I was mocked when I brought it up. Pushing employees to work senselessly long hours is common. * Little to no diversity in my department, which only hires and retains chinese men. * Onboarding timeline makes a smooth departure very difficult.

      Things have changed dont work here in IT right now

      Pros

      The people! The best and brightest work here. You will make life long friends. Management used to be the best I ever worked for. Their Epic project (former Epic Analyst at Methodist) changed that for the worse. Employees are ignored, not listened to and treated unfairly. Work is not evenly distributed and people are leaving in exodus. Pay is low, and raises and market survey increases are peanuts. Wait till this project is over a d things return to normal.

      Cons

      Long hours with no concern for work life balance. No concern for the stressful environment. Employees crying, quitting and going on leave due to stress and workloads. No defense of employees against users who demand customization for personal reasons. One person may be constantly over worked while another may not be. Bring these issues to management is seen as a complaint and you are told to be a team player.
