Best hospitalApr 15, 2023 - Registered Nurse, BSN in Dallas, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Although no place is perfect, this is the best hospital I’ve worked at in my 27 years as a nurse. Good benefits and pay.
Generally promote very inexperienced people to management. Also tend to reward hard work with more work and reward laziness with less work.

Great Place to WorkJun 5, 2023 - Registered NurseRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
If I wasn’t a traveler, I told my husband I would retire with UTSW. Beautiful campus, beautiful place to work and even better people.
No improvements needed, I loved everything!

The job itself is great, but they will screw with your pay.May 31, 2023 - Clinic Staff AssistantRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Some days the providers will offer lunch Lunch is an hour long The job is fast-paced, but manageable, so the day goes by quickly
The biggest cons I have is with pay. They mentioned a really great retirement program but they failed to mention that it was mandatory and comes out of pay automatically. They also didn’t inform me that the pay was once a month until after I started. If they mention an hourly rate, it means nothing unless it’s in the contract. They break down the yearly pay, cut it based on monthly, then tax it and take almost $300 for the retirement program. I was shorted on my check twice and they did nothing when I contacted HR and were very condescending about it. My last check at the company was only for two weeks of the full month that I worked. They cut corners where they can. They don’t even show on ADP what the hourly breakdown is so it’s difficult to to find proof of unfair compensation.Continue reading

It’s not what you know, it’s who you knowJun 4, 2023 - Clinical Research Coordinator in Dallas, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Large research institution with exciting research. Generally good benefits with room for growth (depends on who you know)
Management seems to lack skills and vision to inspire and execute successful teams. Many roadblocks to success due to individuals (and groups) more interested in maintaining status quo than realizing institutional objectives.Continue reading

A great place to workJun 5, 2023 - Postdoctoral Researcher in Dallas, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Good benefits. Excellent health insurance. Great culture.
Huge campus can be overwhelming to navigate.
- Current Employee, more than 8 years★★★★★
Large campus community, great benefitsMay 30, 2023 - Certified Medical Assistant (CMA) in Dallas, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Great benefits! Great health, dental and prescription coverage. 401 k package, & teachers retirement package. Vested benefits after 5 years with the company. Large hospital system, means it's easy to transfer to different clinics and satellite locations if desired.
Large campus means it can feel like you're a small cog in the machine.
- Current Employee★★★★★
They can afford brand new buildings but not a livable wage for employeesMay 31, 2023 - Research Associate in Dallas, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Quality of experience. I have an amazing team! Benefits are comparable.
They can afford to build whole new buildings but they can't afford to pay their employees a livable wage and what they're worth. I have a master's and still have to have a 2nd job in order to make ends meet. You canNOT opt out of the TRS. It takes hundreds of dollars out of each pay-check for a retirement system that won't be enough to retire with. It isn't matching or anything.Continue reading

Great Job for ResearchMay 30, 2023 - Computational Scientist in Dallas, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I had a lot of agency over my work and all of the management was very friendly. The environment was clean and collaboration was easy. They were very flexible for working from home during/after COVID-19.
Salary is much lower than industry software engineering.

Average at bestMay 24, 2023 - Grants and Contracts SpecialistRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
When you get hired in it is very difficult to be fired or let go.
Working in Academia limits your ability to advance in your career and salary. Most staff positions are paid from State funds or Federal Research funds which has a strict cap. If you do well in your position you often are tasked with more responsibilities but not compensated. The oversight of the A&P leadership positions is poor at best.Continue reading
