Great benefits but horrible management
Admin. (Current Employee), Amarillo, TXAugust 17, 2015
Job security and benefits are a great plus however the environment and culture of TTUHSC is horrendous. If you like to work with M.D.'s and Ph.D.'s who treat you as though you know nothing you will love it here.

Pros: Free Health Insurance

The management isn't bad but there is very little room for advancement. Good place to go if retiring or if you're just starting out and need experience in the security field.

This place is horrible. Management needs to not play favorites, they need to accurately train and actually come to work and do their job.

Hit the door running
Lead Clinical Research Associate (Former Employee), Amarillo, TXJune 22, 2014
Pros: my co-workers and meeting our patients
Cons: 60 hour weeks, not paid for overtime, very low pay
I was over 65 studies, and followed 200 plus patients who were participating on our studies.

I really enjoyed working as a Clinical Research Associate. Every single day was always different. I had privileges – more... at the two hospitals, and the Texas Tech clinic. I worked with wonderful doctors and nurses.

Hardest part of my job was working 60 hours a week and was on call 24/7. I worked in Pediatric Oncology and unfortunately we lost some of our sweet patients. That was tough, but I met incredible patients and their families and friends. Everyone that I worked with were each a true blessing to me. – less

N/A (Former Employee), Lubbock, TXOctober 29, 2013
Pros: healthcare, people in building
Cons: poor management in the last office
My typical work day was Monday - Friday 8 to 5.
I learned very early on that the policy and procedures were put in place for a reason and that the guidelines were to be followed to the letter by all employees. – more... For the years I was employed with TTUHSC a very big part of my job to make sure that the policies were followed in each of the offices that I worked in while I was there.
For the most part I enjoyed the co-workers that I had at TTUHSC. Some thought I followed the policies a little too strict (or by the letter) and that caused some hard feelings.
The most enjoyable part of the job was a sense of accomplishment at the end of each day. – less

A challenging but rewarding job.
Psychiatric Physician Assistant (Current Employee), Lubbock, TXSeptember 21, 2013
Pros: free dry cleaning, haircuts, shoe shines, and lunch.
Cons: the never-ending mountain of paperwork.
Busy work environment, but generally satisfied employees.
A typical day is assessing new patients and re-evaluating inpatients.
Time management is a top priority since there's always more work to be done – more... than workers to accomplish it. In this aspect, a truly secure job.
Co-workers adjust to the aspect of working in a prison setting and have always been friendly.
The hardest part of the job is trying to keep up with the never-ending mountain of paperwork that needs to be completed.
The most enjoyable part of the job is counseling the prisoners and hoping that one can rehabilitate them in some small way so that their lives will somehow change for the better. – less

It has definitely helped my ability to be thinking on a scientific perspective.

Clinical Assistant (Former Employee), El Paso, TXJune 17, 2013
Pros: long lunches on fridays, learning a lot about my health as a woman, meeting interesting people.
Cons: long hours
A typical day consisted of caring for a variety of OB/GYN patients. The department consisted of different specialties so there was never a dull moment always something new.I had to learn Spanish since – more... 95% of the patients were Hispanics.At first my co worker were intolerant and some times down right mean to wards me, since I was not bilingual and had very little experience:got hired straight out of school.The hardest part of the job was not being able to communicate with the patients and getting little assistance from my co workers.I didn't let them get me down, I learned Spanish.
The best part of the Job was seeing the patients returning with their new born or seeing an elder woman smile at me and saying thanks for making their experience at the clinic a pleasant one. – less

TTUHSC offers a unique isolated research environment, where there is complete freedom for upcoming scientists like me.

I have learned how to enjoy research and discussing it with others helped me get valuable suggestions in exchange. Faculty here are very helpful and are available round the clock to address any difficulty. – less
