    I have been working at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Some of the most uplifting, compassionate, and mission-driven faculty, staff and researchers I’ve ever worked with. Mostly very respectful and appreciative of each other.

    Cons

    Large institution with not a lot of room for advancement, management is trying to turn things around with more positive culture and organizational change. Salary will be lower than industry but environment is usually good. Management does not always remove poor performers - it gets very political. Pretty typical large and bureaucratic agency.

    Advice to Management

    Positive change that you say you want starts with you. Work together, bring down the silo walls. All divisions are important and part of the operation. There are no “lesser thanks.” And - trust your staff and listen to them, whether they are male or female!!!

    I have been working at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    8-5 work environment with little extra work outside normal hours of operation.

    Cons

    Wages were fair at initial employment but lack of upward mobility and no raises after multiple years makes staying all the harder. High turnover results in more duties being added to the more stable employees with no added pay incentives. Lastly, some departments are run much more strictly than others, causing a disparity between the lax departments and the stricter ones. Good luck determining in an interview which one...

    Advice to Management

    The market wage increase was great. But those not included initially now get to wait two years before the next one. Guess what? Some of us aren't going to/cannot wait that long. Is it really possible for Dr. Mitchell to successfully serve as TTU Chancellor and TTUHSC President? The worker bees have our concerns.

    Pros

    Unless you work for the Lubbock campus the pros for Permian Basin do not apply

    Cons

    Permian Basin is set in 1950 where women's voices are not heard, and promotions are not given. You are pretty much glued to a seat until given permission to move to even use the restroom most days. Jokes about race, people being handicapped, and women are daily talk, and even when they are reported to HR like they are supposed to be nothing is done about it. It's very sad that a dean has 3 assistants that do nothing all...

  9. "Great Benefits, Great Organization, Poor Leadership, No Career Advancement"

      Great Benefits, Free Healthcare, Great Organization

      Cons

      Poor Management, No career advancement, Poor Management

      Advice to Management

      Clinic settings are like soap operas so that is a downside. Poor management leads to unhappy employees which leads to high turnover. Great Organization with Great benefits. If you're lucky enough to be a part of a team ran with leadership, then its so worth it.
