Productive workplace but weird management for the department

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
In this position I learned a lot about research management but did not have a lot of support in learning. This job is more a learn by putting out fires than having hands on training.

Pros

Great benefits, flexible work hours

Cons

Unorganized, limited management help, no departmental advancement available

Great place to work under the right Director

The office environment was comfortable. Everyone does there job. There is not a feeling of family just strictly work. The money is decent and the work is not hard but there are no educational growth support.

Pros

Work/life balance

Cons

Job security if working on grants

Management goes very poorly the longer you stay

The longer you stay, the more work they put on you. If you are an incompetent employee, they keep you doing easy work. If you are responsible and capable of work, they put more work for same pay. They criticize you for every minute detail missed. They overwork you until you wear your bones out.

Great benefits

Really great benefits and time off. Great job place depending on the work area/team. The group that you work with makes a difference. Culture in the department makes a difference.

Pros

Benefits & time away.

Solid employer,

Good employer with great benefits and generally good pay. No issues with work that aren't common with any employer. Lots of clinics around town and transfers are common and welcome.

Pros

Good benefits, pay, opportunity to transfer/advance your career

Cons

Typical healthcare cons - high patient volume, short staffed at times, etc. If you work in the med center parking stinks.

This organization has great benefits

Along with the benefits, the hours at the UTP clinics are great. Everyone gets a long very well. The pay could be better but you get a raise every year or a bonus.

Decent pay, out of touch upper management

UTHealth pays better than most in the public university arena, good benefits, decent time off policies. BUT the upper administration is out of touch with what really happens overall with their support staff. Most of the time, management would rather that you NOT communicate with them at all. In the area I was in, upper management added at least two unnecessary levels of supervision to processes. Created job titles for people in areas where those folks had no clue about the departments they were "promoted" to. Too many "pet projects" and not enough concern about what workers really needed to learn for their jobs. Additionally, we were not provided with the adequate budget needed to get our jobs done. Frequently, projects were implemented by people with no clear plans for understanding how business processes would impact their people. Overall, the people at the support level (at least in my area) were there for the $, but not really happy about the work environment. From 2019-2020 (even with Covid), a lot of quality people left because they were not appreciated after years of service. UTHealth used to be a very supportive place to work, but the last few years has seen a change in management who really do not want to be involved with the departments they lead. Very sad to see it. Bottom-line, if you get hired here, work the job for some experience and move on.

Pros

Decent pay, decent benefits

Cons

No career paths, uninformed and out of touch upper administration, middle management not much better

Poor supervisor leadership, toxic work culture

I worked in the advanced heart failure research department and I was unfortunately very underwhelmed. Lack of structure regarding job duties, lack of training (did not have access to electronic medical records during the whole first month of employment), inefficient communication (supervisor yells sporadically at staff) and employees with seniority tend to dump all of the data entry duties on new staff

Pros

Compensation was fair

Cons

Seedy management, lack of growth

Benefits and fellow coworkers

I've been at the company for 25 years and was very happy until the Pandemic hit. It was sad to have to leave from that. I probably would still be there trying to soak up all of the knowledge and experience to proceed in life.

Pros

Cons

People that really didn't like to work

Yikes!

Does not work as a team. Manager and supervisors take all of the load. Supervisors have no sense in assertiveness and delegating tasks to employees. Supervisors complain about you to close employees. The coworkers do not care about their job so they perform poorly which impacts everyone else. There is a lot of slacking. Everybody has their own little clique. Poor workflow. Wonderful customer service! Clean place.

Pros

Clean, great benefits

Cons

Poor management, unfriendly staff, no teamwork
