      Pros

      The people are friendly. The benefits are great! It’s a good place to grow but know you may outgrow it sooner than you realize. Some departments are very progressive.

      Cons

      Change is both slow and constant. It’s a weird mix! Working in administration, you can easily get stuck in a crappy position. Just like on the outside, you have to know someone to move around; networking is key to survival. Upper management is not the best or brightest.

      Pros

      My PI is wonderful and the working environment is great. My coworkers are always helpful and willing to give advice and help when needed. You have opportunities to move up depending on your PI and the work that you provide.

      Cons

      Upper management is sometimes hard to deal with. Especially the payroll department.

      Very Good if you are looking for job-safety

      Sep 10, 2013 - Senior Administrative Assistant in Dallas, TX

      Pros

      Very good health insurance, no premiums for employee / affordable if adding family. Very good job safety, as in most government jobs. UTSW keeps growing/expanding at a very high rate, giving you many more possibilities of subject matter as well as locations. Despite all the cons, I would still recommend this company, with the caveat that it can be great or bad, depending where you land.

      Cons

      Do not read the policies handbooks, rules exist but in reality everything, from getting a good raise to work-life balance will absolutely depend on your department's culture. In some places promotion from within is pretty good, in others nearly a forbidden word. In fact, WHERE you end up working at UTSW will have much more effect on your life than any UTSW-wide policy management may issue. Most training offered is superficial compared to other state universities. The current culture seems to be "rules apply, and will affect your job, only depending who/where you are in the totem pole, whom do you know, your boss's whim, ..etc.." . Disheartening! Upper management seems to be making an effort to change this but it will be a hard long battle to win.

      Greedy

      Pros

      Good benefits as far as the paid time off and sick time go. Easily accessible. Convienent for doctor appointments if you use any of them.

      Cons

      They're all about the money. They have some good physicians but the greed from the top is apparent. Unethical practices by some upper management. Think you can't get fired when working with the state. That's partially correct. If they want you to leave they'll neat pick at your work, give you unreasonable deadlines, and basically harass you to death until you resign. Some managers don't seem to know much and depend on others in the field and the lower rank employees to feed them the answers and then take all the credit. You never know if your manager is in for the day. You never see them but they check emails by phone to pretend they are on campus. Word is they're at their other place of employment or shopping. And why doesn't their time off come out of their PTO? Promotions? Forget it. It's all about who you know. Positions are filled before they are even posted. So much more but you get the idea.

      Pros

      They are willing to provide limited training for a specific need that they have an immediate need for. The state provided benefits are slightly above average.

      Cons

      The management structure supports upper management at the expense of rest of the department. This, of course, undermines the organization. Very dysfunctional management structure headed by a CIO who frankly does not care for improvement and defers day to day operations to an assistant CIO who has contempt for everyone.
