    Pros

    Treated well, especially for a resident. Great pathology of patients. Believe it or not, the prison hospital was an interesting place to be. You have to be VERY ill to be admitted. I was able to see pathology that you usually do not see in the community.
    MD Anderson was the opposite side of the spectrum in terms of patient demographics.
    Living on an island.
    Unable to have a phone during prison clinic. I needed to petition the warden.
    Also as a female, I kept on getting padded down daily by a grumpy female guard. This irked me because I could not keep up with my peers, who are all Caucasian and Asian. They did not get searched at all. I am not looking for a boyfriend in the prison.

    Cons

    travel time, opportunities for fellowship. It is a great place for residency. When you go to a hospital with many fellows as a resident, basically you do scut.

    Advice to Management

    monitor the guards. most are excellent. But occasionally there is one that gets out of hand. Pardon the pun

    Pros

    Good entry level workplace in science, great benefits.

    Cons

    In last 15 years there is constant talk about financial troubles and need for development. Questionable retention of talents and sometimes it seems there is more construction workers on the floor than scientists or workers.

    Advice to Management

    This is now big construction place making me think that senior management is actually managing parking and constructions.

    Pros

    benefit package was great, competitive rate of pay for the title, HAPPY pay was a wonderful bonus

    Cons

    management (at least in my department) was abhorrent. Don't you **dare** care about patients or be empathetic to sensitive situations. Work schedule was horrible.

    Advice to Management

    its healthcare.. there is no emphasis on "care" here. UTMB receives funding for taking care of their patients from one place or another-- let's focus on the patient and not their pocketbook. If a woman is bedside to her dying husband-- it is HIGHLY inappropriate to go in to collect money or ask menial questions that can be handled at another time. I care about people too much to stay in an environment like that. Oh yea-- the way some people work 9 straight days on their feet with only 2 days off before starting that schedule again is ridiculous-- especially since y'all set it up to ensure none of that time is OT. I am so happy to be away from there.

    Pros

    If microbiologist then you should consider this place. The facilities are top of the art to do some amazing research and discoveries.

    Cons

    None,
    Just the island itself that is too small and not a lot of things to do. It's 50min drive from Houston.
