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

    Pros

    Collegial peers. Growth culture. State benefits. Regional recognition.

    Cons

    As with many institutions, administration is shifting from Faculty control to MBAs.
    State institutions tend to be slow in adopting new policy, processes. Administrative burden higher then non-state options.

    Advice to Management

    Retaining current faculty is less expensive then recruiting new ones. More attention to making faculty experience being valued.

    I worked at UT Health Science Center San Antonio (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great State Benefits .. only great Retirement if you been there prior to 2003 or had 25 years service.

    Cons

    Pay is based on State funds, which is low.. no raises but maybe an annual merit if no freeze on budget. Only Faculty and Senior Management positions get the high salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your worker Bees more, and allocate the funds more fairly. Promote more within and train your dedicated employees more, offer more incentives.
