"UT Southwestern Medical Center supported not only me but 10,000 other staff, physicians, students, and fellows. They have a great benefit package, as well as vacation accruals. The pay is moderate and it is tough to advance in their environment. Needless to say, I am very grateful for the experience that I gained working for UT Southwestern for the past 20 years."
What do you like about working at University of Texas?
"Low stress, minimal supervision, environment, casual dress code, convenient lunch options, and employee discounts."
Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?
"Uhh, here's a nice nugget I just found out. Don't expect to be paid what you should be. I just found out I make less than the minimum offered to me as an option on the previous page. I'm not in the $30,000 - $40,000 pay range. I'm in the $20,000 - $30,000 pay range. Also, car pool because parking cost about $400.00 a fiscal year. That's alright, just keep screwing me over UTSA, with the economy as terrible as it is I guess I really have no other choice than to bend over and take it."
What don't you like about working at University of Texas?
"Although there I like minimal supervision, the utter lack of direction at my job leaves me to do nothing throughout most of the day. The only direction I've received from my supervisor was to completely disregard procedure, and do things the department's way. What a laughable institution!"
What suggestions do you have for management?
"I would hire people who know what they are doing as far as office management and administration. I wouldn't coddle scientists just because they bring in grant money. If you are the principal investigator, and therefore, head administrator of a multi-million dollar government grant, you sure as hell should know how to follow purchasing procedure, instead of bitching and moaning about how the University makes it impossible for you to conduct research because of policy violations! Maybe learn to follow the rules like everyone else, you're scientists, you should be able to understand this."
