      Pros

      Unbeatable healthcare benefits, competitive pay, academic institution with a ton of career and learning opportunities

      Cons

      Huge amount of focus placed on patient satisfaction (as there should be), however, the culture appears to have created a very entitled patient population

      Good company, but not enough pay for the amount of work

      Pros

      Health, dental, and vision insurance were phenomenal. PTO is sufficient. Retirement is top tier.

      Cons

      Terrible team dynamics, overworked with not enough pay. No bonuses. No room for growth. You basically have to be related to/have prestige to be transferred anywhere else/be given the chance to move forward. If you're good at your job, they will try to keep you at that position so that you don't leave.

      Pros

      Great support. Great coworkers. Lots of specialties to gain experience in.

      Cons

      Opened a new tower so will pull staff from well staffed floors. Make you participate in Texas Teacher Retirement instead of 401k matching.
