Typical work day always very exciting as it produced great challenges and opportunities for execution of all our set daily goals.

Management team had a full grasp of the vision – more... and goals of the account. Has been very supportive and respected all departmental leadership and was open to all feedback from the frontline team members and supervisors.

IT Worker (Current Employee), Fort Worth, TX – April 24, 2014
Pros: fairly good health care
Cons: lack desire to change or improve and focus on upper-class white women.
Management and workforce is a mix of older professionals and new professionals. Very entrenched in the way things are done and hesitant to change. Very "inbred" meaning, TCU hires their own graduates. This can hurt and help the institution. It limits the influx of new ideas, but fosters a sense of familiarity.
Study Abroad Coordinator (Former Employee), Center for International Studies – March 5, 2014
TCU is a truly unique work environment, for employees who are passionate about what the University is trying to do for its students. Expectations are high, but there is an enthusiasm and a buy-in unlike any other institution I have interviewed with or worked for. If the appropriate position was available, I would return to work at TCU in a heart-beat.

The most enjoyable part of the job is working towards student patient quality care.
