Information Management Assistant (Former Employee), Dallas, TX – January 14, 2015
Pros: excellent benefits
Cons: power struggles with department managers
Typical work day involved assisting cancer patients and doctors. Make patients feel comfortable and listen their needs. Listening was very important as most patients were coping with cancer. Whatever the patient needed I would try to provide while assisting techs with the procedures.
I learned patient care which was most important.
Management was cooperative and supportive.
Co-workers were supportive and willing to train in use of the equipment and providing knowledge that allowed me to better assist the patient in understanding the procedures which was a tremendous help.
The hardest part of the job was coping with the sadness and the terminally ill who were very young in age. At the same time it was the best part being able to brighten their day by being personable and receptive to their needs.
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Current Employee), Dallas, TX – November 10, 2014
Great organization to work for, depending on what department you work in there may not be any room to advance. All types of patients the only bad thing is whatever the patient says is "LAW" and when you work with people who have suffered brain injuries they will complain on you and you may not have even done anything. One time I was off work and someone complained, so that part does become draining on your spirit.
Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee), Dallas, TX – June 6, 2014
Pros: work with awesome people
Cons: pay for parking
Good place to work. I deal in patient care. It can be hard emotionally when patients don't get well and leave the hospital after doing your best along with your team to take care of them. Also things can awesome when they get better and leave the hospital. The thing I love about working in UT Southwestern is the people you work with period.
