    I worked at University of North Texas full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of potential. Beautiful campus in a good location.

    Cons

    A serious lack of quality leadership. Individuals holding the top positions have unrealistic expectations and no understanding of what they ask staff to do. Academic culture of bullying and harassment from the top. Little professionalism, no ethics. Very high turnover. Unhealthy work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be leaders. First understand what you are asking of others, then take responsibility when you mess up. Give clear achievable goals with realistic expectations and provide the necessary tools to do the job.

    Pros

    Occasional Comp time hours. is the only good thing.

    Cons

    they do not compensation employees with advanced degrees 2. Raises are non-existent. 3. parking and HR training is awful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate employees with advanced degree. Listen to employees who have a valid complaint, don't just say you do not have any cause and throw them back to the wolves. I was harassed by my supervisor from the first day and Office of Diversity and Equity did nothing to help me even when i told them my supervisor revealed her naked body to me.

    Pros

    I would work for UNT again in a heartbeat. Professors were always professional and I please don't hesitate to be a student or consultant for them.

    Absolutely nothing. Amazing group to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    KEEP the Geriatric Program. I know it was consider for discontinuation. What was Administration thinking? Duh....look at the numbers of the aging population.

    Pros

    Great time off and insurance. When students are off, you get some time off. You get comp time, sick time, vacation time to play around with when the summer comes.

    Cons

    Management is TERRIBLE! They can be verbally and physically harmful to anyone whom works there. It's great if you just need a paycheck but to rebuild your esteem, I strongly suggest getting a strink FAST!

    I worked at University of North Texas full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I can't think of any. Seriously.... I guess it beats being jobless and homeless, but not by much. The benefits suck and unless you're one of the fat administrators the pay sucks, too.

    Cons

    The fish rots from the head. And that place is ROTTEN. I worked in the College of Business and I know it was one of the worst places on campus. Incompetent management, cronyism, and a culture of shooting the messenger make it a nightmare. Productive faculty get abused, and incompetence is rewarded. Very very sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all the management and clean house.

    I worked at University of North Texas full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Generous vacation policy, pretty campus. Not much else to say, but I need to have 20 words to complete this review.

    Cons

    Pay, benefits, management, parking, board of regents, VP staff, management in general really treats talented people as a threat to their security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the students. Less than 10% of the student body bothered to vote (at all, for and against!) for your new stadium and student union. 80+% of UNT students work their way through college and do not have the free time to loiter in a union or attend weekend football games. The new empty stadium is a sad confirmation of the students lack of interest in big time football. Those MILLIONS and MILLIONS of dollars could have been spent on enhancing the education for all students at UNT.

    Regarding my individual employment, over several years I have witnessed the deterioration of the Division of Student Affairs. DSA is far past due for a regime change. This has become a place for mid-level bureaucrats to hide for decades on end while populating director level management with their cronies and friends.
    Assisting students is not the goal; creating the image of looking like they help large numbers of students is the directive. Quality student experience is a joke. The focus is to "churn and burn" as may students that you can headcount as you can. The numbers are then used to generate more student paid fees for the department budget. This is a house of cards. If enrollment slows, people will be RIF'd and payrolls will likely be slashed.

    If work/life balance is important to you - than you will enjoy it there

    Cons

    If you want to actually have a career - don't go there!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
