    I have been working at UT Southwestern Medical Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great medical school with growing clinical presence in one of the major US cities. Builds its clinical enterprise on outstanding research and great educational programs. Overall, a very strong place for academic medicine.

    Cons

    Compensation is perhaps a bit behind in some areas. Cost of living in Dallas used to be a real bargain for what the city has to offer but that is no longer a recruitment advantage.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your competition when it comes to building the next chapter of the institution. Outstanding institutions compete with each other for talent and need to be able to win the competition in order to thrive.

    I worked at UT Southwestern Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    UTSWMC provides a great work environment. For the medical and scientific community it offered a whole variety of learning and developmental opportunities. Everything from classes to lecture series and conferences. The multitude of award winning staff members available to you was overwhelming. Lastly, the facilities and the campus was always undergoing modernization efforts. It was a great place to work.

    Cons

    Because it is a state institution the pay isn’t competitive.
