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

    Pros

    Great pay. Non-micromanagement style. Insurance is higher than other places but better coverage. Mgmt welcomes your ideas and encourages career development. Up to date with the latest and greatest software. Resources are easily made available which makes it pleasant to work.

    Cons

    Pay is once a month. 2% merit increase vs the 3% norm. Parking is not free. It seems as some of the senior executives do not like communicating with lower staff for some reason - as if titles are more important than answering crucial emails that relate to the operations of the dept.

    Advice to Management

    None really.. try to provide more incentives so that your employees won't be looking to work somewhere else.

    Pros

    Great location, university management acknowledges that they don't always communicate well and seem to want to make improvements, making improvements to the buildings

    Cons

    There is a distinct lack of respect from the executive level in a school. There is also a glaring lack of communication.

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees know you appreciate them. Spend time in the office. Walk around and talk to the people who work for you. Act like you care about your employees.

    Pros

    The lab I worked was good. I could learn a lot and got good publications

    Cons

    I am not generalizing here. Lab to lab difference will be there based on PI. Even if we work for 20 hrs a day there is no appreciation and not good place for career advancement. No promotions at all. Because of this its easy to loose interest in science.

    Advice to Management

    Please try not to loose good post docs. Please show a path for career advancement.

    Pros

    UHTSCSA concentrates on graduate and professional students and cutting edge research. The research environment is competitive and the Cancer Therapy Research Center (CTRC) at UT Health Science Center is an NCI designated cancer research center.

    Cons

    The research environment can be both positive and also very competitive - both of which are good.
