Company reviews
"Flexible Company"
Former EmployeeGraduate Assistant
One of the most flexible companies to work at that allowed remote work and handled any problems that arose in my life. They are authentic in their statements and you will truly be valued in any role.

"Shining gem in TMC"
Current EmployeeSenior Project Manager
I’ve worked in the Academic and Healthcare industry for several decades within TMC. Most were worked at another nearby institution and have only recently discovered UTH. There is a wealth of opportunity and room for growth here…both for newbies and the experienced. UTH pays a bit less to start off but make up for it quickly with generous increases. Great benefits and generous sick time/PTO. The overall environment is collegial and relatively laid back. Who knew that two institutions in UTS and blocks away from one another could be so different.?!

"Great place to work "
Current EmployeePsychiatrist
Great system to work for with dedicated staff and supportive managers. Plenty of opportunities for growth and development in a department that has a good overall collegial culture.

"Great Company "
Former EmployeeProgram Coordinator
Overall great place to work. Manager was helpful and flexible. Benefits are very good. Seems there is always a bad apple in the bunch that makes your work less enjoyable, but that’s almost everywhere. Some people are just miserable.
