    Great benefits and opportunities for jobs.

    You work for a university, so flexibility with work schedule is nonexistent and you have to clock in and out every single day. You feel lost in a sea of employees which can be hard sometimes.

    I worked at UT Southwestern Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free insurance if you are single

    Cons

    15 years behind most healthcare organizations, mandatory 8 percent deducted off paycheck for TRS, poor leadership structure, very difficult to advance, no room for growth, discriminatory environment, management has no prior experience as leaders, leadership is a "Boy's Club", no training, and horrible work culture.

    Advice to Management

    Round with employees and find out what is working and what is not. Train your managers and make sure they understand and know how to explain policies. Invest in people, not just the data. Invest in good data which means investing in efficient systems that can help the teams be more efficient with their work load. Provide training and advance notice when there will be changes. Do not lie in interviews and tell the individual it will be one job when in fact you will be assigning tasks that are not associated to what the individual interviewed for.
