Working corrections with UTMB can be a challenge but it was very interesting at the same time, I enjoyed the company along with the benefits but my safety wasn't number 1 priority with the company and that's what I did not like,
if your ok with being micro-managed, not being heard, not advancing, being a robot, not getting paid what you are worth, enjoying drama, enjoy getting talked to crazy by patients, being lied to about what you really thought you were being hired for, being lied to how the company really operates, enjoy tattle tellers, enjoy administrators, supervisors who tries and throw you under the bus or who just don't care, or enjoy a place that is boring<<favoritism, or enjoy not having incentives, or constant write ups
long hours/short lunches and constant travel the 25% stuff they tell you is a LIE
Tend to look for external employees instead of promoting within. Should look at skills and promote within department. Great talent is overlooked. Depts should also consider flex schedules to reduce va/sl being used.

Management was extremely supportive when I was pursuing my bachelors degree. They worked with my scheduling and encouraged me along the way. When I needed time off for school assignments, there was no problem with approval.

The benefits are fantastic, but the daily job requirements are too unreasonable for the amount of pay received. The amount of bureaucratic nonsense that goes behind the scenes of this company out phenomenally outrageous.
Stores Clerk II (Former Employee) – Huntsville, TX – February 16, 2017
This is a very good place to work. The work is easy and not too demanding. I think they should do some readjusting to their management staff because sometimes it feels as if the management is against the lower employees.
Health Unit Coordinator (Current Employee) – Galveston, TX – February 14, 2017
The benefits are great but because I work 8 hour shifts it seems as though I'm here all the time. The staff can be rude and uninviting but you kind of get used to it. The visitation is so open and I had to get used to that.
Pros: great benefits cons: I'm here everyday almost
Assistant Professor, research track. (Current Employee) – Galveston, TX – February 12, 2017
Good Benefits. Lots of bureaucracy. Good Scientific environment. New contentious faculty compensation plan. Financial decisions taken for the Health side of the institution (ie new hospital) can have drastic consequences on the Research side (shrinking budget).
ANESTHESIA TECHNICIAN II (Current Employee) – Galveston, TX – February 8, 2017
This is a hospital that seems massive in size but because this place is very homey, it has the small town feel for a hospital. Most of the people here actually know each other which makes this place in its own way like a large family.
Mental Health Clinician (Former Employee) – Marlin, TX 76661 – February 3, 2017
The supervisor had no idea what was happening at my job. The supervisors I had within the 3 years I worked there were 4. Three out of the four used me to do all the work. They choice not to do their job and made me the scapegoat for their problems. I was isolated with no support.
A typical day at work was chaotic to say the least. I learned how to effectively communicate in a professional manner, as well as deal with hostile customers in an effective, but professional way. The management was ok, although there were some things that should have and could have been dealt with but always seemed to be pushed to the side. The work place culture often lacked the secure mind. Employees became complacent in their every day duties until there was a tragedy that triggered them to go back in to the "secure" mind.
Excellent Benefits, Paid time off
Long days, deal with hostile co workers as well as customers
