Good Work/Life balance, but poor management.
EDW Manager (Former Employee) –  Webster, TXAugust 15, 2018
I enjoyed the people at UTMB that I had the pleasure of working with - with the exception of my management. The management team as a whole seemed more preoccupied with getting an important title, or a promotion, that with treating the team with respect and building the right tools. The 'pat-yourself-on-the-back' team was well in force when I left, but didn't seem aware of it, or care that they weren't producing what was needed.
One good thing- I NEVER had to worry about work/life balance. EVERYONE left at 5 pm and it was rare we had to work week-ends in IT.
Pros
Real work/life balance
Cons
Poor management gets promoted - they don't seem to be aware of what is happening on the lines.

UTMB is a great place to work. Great benefits and room for growth. Most enjoyable part of the job was knowing you were making an impact and helping patients.

Most difficult task
Senior Desktop Support Analyst/Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Angleton, TXAugust 9, 2018
Daily our call bank receives about 400-650 calls daily. There are days where we receive out of the ordinary requests. The difficult part is if the technician's familiarity with the essence of the request is not sufficient, it becomes difficult to achieve first call resolution SLA. For every call I receive, my goal is to close every incident at first encounter. Therefore, it is imperative to listen well, repeat the need back to customer, resolve on initial contact as often as possible.
Pros
Great compensation package
Cons
Poor manager/management skills

Business System Analyst-Laboratory Services (Current Employee) –  Galveston, TXAugust 8, 2018
UTMB Laboratory services provides no advancement in career opportunities. I have never worked in a environment where leadership lacks necessary management knowledge and are under qualified for their leadership roles.

Nurse (Former Employee) –  TXJuly 21, 2018
Pros are only the benefits. Poor management, poor treatment of nursing staff and patients, no opportunity for advancement, walking on egg shells everyday and they will work you to death until they lay you off and replace you.
Pros

Upper Management issues
Administrative Manager/Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Galveston, TXJuly 16, 2018
Upper management is more concerned with maintaining the status quo as opposed to improving the patent care. Practice acts more like a production mill than a facility focused on patient care.

toxic environment
Licensed Vocational Nurse (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 15, 2018
upper management only promotes the toxic environment at the "nursing level". client concerns are only promoted via lip service. the entire operation is driven ONLY by numbers. management will undercut the nursing staff in a heartbeat. if you love walking on eggshells during the day fearing for your job, etc then this place is for YOU. don't be fooled by the fact that this is a "state agency" so it must be good. could go on but i think the point is made.
Pros
leaving work after shift
Cons
do you have a spread sheet?

The company does have good benefits but does not acknowledge their employees who have been there a long time. Company use to value their employees & does not promote within. Company is not as flexible as they say they are. There is no room for advancement. Would like a new change & if given an opportunity I would like to demonstrate my skills
Pros
