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

    Pros

    Good benefits and ample time off. In some departments, the schedules are very flexible.

    Cons

    Pay is mediocre. While the processes are always changing, most of the older staff are reluctant to accept or embrace the change. Also, the doctors are treated like gods. Even when the doc is in the wrong, it is still your fault.

    Advice to Management

    If you'd like to retain talent, increase the pay of the administrative staff. The burden to "hold" departments together usually falls on the staff, not the doctors. It would also help if you were to encourage everyone to accept when processes change. Nothing is more difficult than doing the new way and still accepting the old way.

    Pros

    Great benefits and your medical is covered at 100% for employee only. You'll have to pay for your spouse and children.

    Uneven workload, which causes a high turn over rate. Unable to use PTO due to workload and short staff, and paying $400 a year for parking.

    Advice to Management

    Speak 101 with employees and maybe sit in on their day to day to see exactly what all your employees do.
