    Pros

    It's hard to get fired

    Cons

    This company hires people of questionable character, does not pay well and has zero support from administration. On three occasions the same RN came to work drunk and it was ignored by administration even with the medical director being the one to report it.

    Advice to Management

    Support your nurses better, and pay them what they are worth. This company is the lowest paying in the city.

    I have been working at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    All of my coworkers are super friendly. They all have good senses of humor and I'm happy to see them everyday.

    Cons

    Some of the directors think they're a bit more important and entitled than they should be. It gets old pretty quickly.

    Pros

    It is a growing organization with a lot of potential. The new President has established a new culture and a vision.

    Cons

    Some of the leadership has been there for many years and they still struggle to understand that is time to change and grow if we want to be competitive. Salaries are not very high.

    Pros

    Room to grow, excellent patient interaction, amazing nursing staff, educational opportunities were everywhere, and staff are always friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Pay was sub par, communication between the departments was non existent, and scheduling was always a challenge. Supplies were also unreliably stocked over the weekend or when scheduled

    Advice to Management

    Work on maintaining a consistent supply line and be more involved in your subordinates. Have more flexibility with staffing so scheduling isn't always so hectic

    I have been working at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The administration can be speedy.

    Cons

    I was treated very unappreciative, the communication was limited and dysfunctional, I was threatened twice to be fired, the dealings with me very unfair and unreasonable. I moved all the way from Germany there, worked alone in a lab for a supervisor who had not set up the lab, which was non-functional. My supervisor offered to be the guarantor for my apartment. Although I had paid my rent, he was putting unprofessional pressure on me to be removed as a guarantor later. That led to a serious of events that were very inappropriate and resulted in my termination. I did not have the chance to talk to anybody higher up. Because this university is the only one in the city and there is nothing in West Texas within the next 4 hours, they seem to live in a bubble without laws. Do not work there.

    Advice to Management

    Something is very wrong at your institution.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Retirement is good as long as you plan on being there until you are ready to retire. If you are a nurse the hours are good.

    Cons

    It is very stressful and the retirement is good only if you are retiring there after a lot of years. Consider this when taking this job. Read the retirement requirements carefully. e

    Advice to Management

    None, these are state jobs that retirement and pay are mandated by the state. Maybe have a more open door policy.
