    ABSOLUTELY AMAZING TO WORK WITH! MY TIME WITH THEM WAS WONDERFUL . ALL CONS AND NO NEGATIVES. ALL PROFESSONAL1

    Consultant (Former Employee) Denton, TX

    ProsI 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.

    ConsAbsolutely nothing. Amazing group to work with.

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It Pays the Bills

    Food Supervisor I (Current Employee) Denton, TX

    ProsGreat 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.

    ConsManagement 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!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    They chew you up and spit you out

    Professor (Former Employee) Denton, TX

    ProsI 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.

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementFire all the management and clean house.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Worst Place On Earth

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Denton, TX

    ProsNice campus, Nice Gym, Nice Bus System

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people who work for you.

    Division of Student Affairs is a mess!

    Student Services Coordinator III (Former Employee) Denton, TX

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen 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.
