    I have been working at UT Southwestern Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Teaching hospital where there is a culture of learning among all disciplines. High standards in patient care. Patients frequently comment on how great the care is which is assuring and motivating.

    Cons

    Limited staff coverage when you want to take time off which means other team members have to carry higher caseload. Ultimately it can effect patient care.
