    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.

    Cons

    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!

    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.

    Pros

    Nice campus, Nice Gym, Nice Bus System

    Cons

    Get treated like a second class citizen. The management is non-existent. Staff are treated horribly. Parking is out of this world bad

    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.
