    Won't give you useful skills for future careers

    Math Grader (Current Employee) Denton, TX

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Green light to anywhere!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWorking on the campus provides and refreshing energetic mood especial when working with or around students. If one is engaged continuing education there is a predicative flexibility not all way present in other environments.

    ConsOrganization leadership appears to have a high turnover rate resulting in volatile work environment during transition periods.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay close attention to the context of the environment and take very little face value.

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

    Wonderful working for a large university.

    Student Contact Representative (Former Employee) Denton, TX

    ProsThe biggest pro to working for UNT is the insurance benefits and paid time off. Generally whenever class is not in session most office are closed, this is in addition to your paid vacation and sick leave. Most of the amenities that are available to the students are available to employees, some with a modest fee but nothing compared to what you would pay off campus.

    ConsThe biggest con about working at UNT was the fact that it is extremely difficult to be promoted upwardly rather than laterally. I was there from July 2007 to January 2011 and ended with the same position and salary I started with. I applied for over 45 jobs throughout the campus and received only a handful of interviews and no other offers. This is the same for just about all of my coworkers. My position could not even be expanded so that I could be offered a larger salary, you get what you start with. The only reason I no longer work at UNT was because I had no future there. It is deplorable in my opinion to work four years in one job with no promotion nor salary increase.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook more closely at employees that have been with you for years to promote rather than consistently looking outside the university.

    Needs better leadership

    Human Resources (Former Employee) Denton, TX

    ProsGood work and life balance

    ConsColleges and departments don't work together for the benefit of the entire University. Upper management makes decisions, and then points the finger at others when those decisions, even though right for the Univeristy, aren't popular with faculty and staff.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Dead end job with favoritism for YES men

    Police Officer (Current Employee) Denton, TX

    ProsYou don't have a lot of violent crime, campus is nice. Some of the employees are great to work with. Vacation time is good/competitive. 50% of tuition for employees.

    ConsEntitlement college kids, no room to promote, promotions go to the unqualified, Chief has no Police experience or people skills, Employees get written up for ridiculous reasons to keep them from getting yearly merit raises, etc.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit being politicians and be Police, that's our job ! Surrounding yourself with "yes men" is not going to improve the quality of our job, it just paves the way for a Nazi regime. The job is tough enough as it is and we do not need you stepping on our fingers instead of helping.

    UNT ONLY if you NEED a job

    Administrative Coordinator II (Current Employee) Denton, TX

    ProsState Agency; has State regulations guiding and guarding your job security. Has some discounts and perks for being employed at campus that are useful. Town can be considered quaint and in a nice location to D/FW metroplex.

    ConsState Agency; must follow strict, almost ridiculous state guidlines and regulations in all that you do. OLD campus, old buildings, old dogs in the "big house' running things.. Most money goes to improving PhD programs, research and athletics. Working conditions can be questionable (many buildings do not possess modern HVAC systems; rodent and insect infestation; inadequate restrooms for number of staff/student/faculty). You WILL have to pay for your own parking and there is NO parking available unless you get there an hour+ before your work day starts... And then you will still end up walking a good clip to your office.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't forget the STAFF... Without the mechanics to work the "wheel', progress, teaching and growth do NOT happen. It is NOT "all" about the faculty. Start practicing your "transparency" and don't just 'talk' it up. Experience DOES count... formal education is NOT everything.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    If you can take the negativity from management, it's an okay place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Denton, TX

    ProsThe benefits are pretty good despite the economy and the pay could be better for most people here but some departments pay pretty well, such as anything having to do with Infomation Technology and I hear the Police Department got a heck of a raise when the rest of us didn't get anything. They are pretty flexible if you want time off and they have the department covered and you have the time. They don't demand your life but do expect you to put in the time. There are so many different departments too.

    ConsIf you aren't a departmental favorite, forget getting anywhere other than the bottom! Plus, they micro-manage you big time! There is very little trust much of anywhere on campus amongst employees! Be careful who you say what to...it'll come back to bite you! Just do your job, don't make any friends here and go home...you'll be better for it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTRUST YOUR EMPLOYEES!!! You hired them to do a job, let them do it! Sometimes I just want to ask my manager if they would like to do my job for me. Please, also, give us a raise!
