Very Political
TTUHSC - Director of Clinic Operation (Former Employee) –  Lubbock, TXNovember 12, 2017
There is little you can do to change the "system". The benefits are great but it is very political and need to know people to get ahead. There is not a checks and balance system for employees to get help.

Program Developer, Supervisor (Former Employee) –  TexasAugust 8, 2017
It is wonderful working for the university because of the benefits, but the culture at the health sciences center is not the best. There is conflict and quagmire between departments, and customer service suffers as a result.

The Graduate Student Assistant at TTUHSC
Graduate Student Assistant (Former Employee) –  TexasJune 28, 2017
Rather than have designated Teaching Assistants, Research Assistants, and student Administrative Assistants, TTUHSC bundled them all together into the GSA role, which means they are all your responsibility depending on the need at the time. Good hourly wages for 20-hour part time work and the ability to get paid to complete schoolwork if all tasks have been completed is a really nice deal for student employees, however there will come times whenever you must work above and beyond your comfort levels to ensure various faculty and courses keep running efficiently (particularly if you are TA-ing for a course). It was enjoyable work and I do recommend it to incoming students.
Pros
Making your own schedule, great CV building, exposure to faculty, opportunity for publications
Cons
No benefits, recently implemented digital time-clocks are a severe negative.

Good name, bat rap
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Lubbock, TXJune 27, 2017
It's about who you know, management doesn't want to address issues when brought up
Bullies were promoted, not enough training for what management demanded. Monthly department meetings were a farce. They seemed forced and authenticity dwindled.
Enjoyed good employees, events put on by HSC.
Pros
employee engagement, employee perks, benefits
Cons
no room for growth, about who you know, terrible management, rewarded bullying, unorganized department, waste of state funds

Not sure of how the rest of TTUHSC is but the correctional facility nursing management is horrible. Advancement seems to have been based on lack of education and ability to do nothing.

Faculty
Adjunct Assistant (Current Employee) –  Lubbock, TXMarch 31, 2017
Invited to join "recurrent faculty" (contract faculty), and was recently appointed as adjunct assistant professor. Teach online courses to a diverse group of students spread all over Texas and in other states. Department chair has been excellent to work with. Rest of faculty are hard-working, committed to students and their success. Have enjoyed my work with TTUHSC and plan to continue teaching with them as long as possible.
Pros
Work from home, set own hours
Cons
Miss direct in-class student contact, less informed about campus matters

Coordinator (Current Employee) –  El Paso, TXJanuary 17, 2017
employees are not appreciated nor valued. You cannot promote based on your work skills or experience. Unfortunately it's about WHO you know and not what you know.
Pros
"free healthcare"
Cons
everything else

OK place.
GRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANT (Current Employee) –  Lubbock, TXJanuary 11, 2017
Stipend for grad students is great. Work life balance is non-existent IMO. But its grad school so thats to be expected. Lubbock is a small town so it is better to factor that in in your decision making. However the cost of living is manageable.

Other (Current Employee) –  El Paso, TXJuly 6, 2016
I've been here for about 4 years now and still have not moved up, I've applied to higher positions. I've tried moving up the corporate ladder. It just seems impossible. There's too much favoritism, gossip, rumors, speculations, micro managing, inexperienced management. I don't recommend anyone investing any time with Texas Tech
Pros
Insurance and benefits
Cons
No Advancement, Favoritism, Very difficult to get a raise
