    I worked at UT Health Center at Tyler full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very good Hospital still attend certain doctors there and continue to get good care

    Cons

    Some wait times depending on where you're at needs to be addressed time between doctors and procedures or whatever the case is need to spend their time out accordingly don't take enough time to research how to do that

    Advice to Management

    Hire more nurses and keep up the good work

    I worked at UT Health Center at Tyler full-time

    Pros

    good benefits, if you can get permission to use your sick time and vacation time, and friendly campus

    Cons

    The reviewer who already posted that the Center is a hotbed of gossip and to get out as fast as you can, is right. It's not only the Center, but other campus departments, too. Another reviewer mentioned that HR is inconsistent in enforcing policies. This is also true. Favoritism is rampant because HR allows it. Another reviewer mentioned that new employees are hired at higher rates. This is also true. Older workers are passed over for promotions and younger, good looking female workers are hired at higher pay instead. Employees were forced to use a week of vacation time "voluntarily" because the campus is in financial trouble. Horrible parking situation. Cafeteria food is, well, hospital food. You either have to bring your lunch or use up your lunch HOUR driving to Tyler to eat. It's so far out of town, you can't get anywhere to eat and back in 30 minutes. Also, everyone making less than a certain amount, about $47K, is hourly and on a time clock.

    I have been working at UT Health Center at Tyler full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and time accrual for vacation and holidays are better than anyplace local. Paid medical insurance for employees. Patient load regarding healthcare specialties provide interesting and rewarding work experiences.

    Cons

    No raise unless the state legislature approves it. No merit or cost of living increases. The salaries are only competitive upon hire. New hires are brought in making more than current employees for same job titles.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciated employees will perform better. Not keeping up with cost of living makes for bad attitudes and seeking employment elsewhere. Bringing in new hires at higher salaries than current employees with matching titles is insulting.

    I have been working at UT Health Center at Tyler full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work with awesome benefits! Health insurance is paid by employer if you are single. Out of pocket for dental & vision, but no problem.

    Cons

    No raises. Hard working & dedicated employees need incentives & reasons to stay, otherwise, so long. Difficult to get rid of employees who aren't meeting expectations. They tend to stick around until they are eligible to retire. These employees are out of touch with their job expectations, unable to use a computer, take students, etc. Someone needs to light a "fire" underneath these employees to get them to do their jobs! HR isn't very helpful in getting these people out the door to make room for fresh, energetic employees with new ideas. Also, too many people stuck in the past & don't want to embrace change. I'm tired of hearing " we've been doing it this way for 20 years."

    Pros

    Amazing benefits and retirement.

    Cons

    Way too much management administration. There's always 10 people watching everything you do. If there's a bad outcome the administration will write you up or fire you in a heartbeat to "solve" the problem rather than look at the system problems. In 3 years I've already had 4 managers!

    Advice to Management

    Support your nurses. Don't allow the physicians to be disrespectful or abusive.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, great coworkers and an interesting workplace. This hospital has its problems, like any state institution. Stilla great group of people for the most part.

    Cons

    Micromanagement and gossip runs rampant in the Northeast Texas Center for Rural/Community Health. Avoid it or get out as quickly as you can!

    Advice to Management

    Pay raises are few and far between. Treat your people well and they will stay longer.
