    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more attentive to the complaints and concerns of the lower people. There was great evidences favoritism, especially with race.

    I have been working at University of North Texas part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great environment for students to work part-time, and depending on the department, get extra training and insight outside the classroom environment.

    Cons

    Poor pay, near impossible to get an increased budget from the Student Government Assoc., as they are concerned with all the wrong info to 'qualify' a budget increase. Hard to encourage promotion of student organizations in the governing body won't support us! The University needs to relinquish some of the SGA's control over the budget, or encourage senatorial participation from groups OTHER than the fraternities and sororities. It's like a Greek country club!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focused on the student involvement, and resolve the financial issues.

    Pros

    This university has a very open atmosphere and good teachers, it is artistic and oriented towards the creative side of life. History of community and care, students are often open minded and free spirited.

    Cons

    Management, the Administration at UNT has some pretty horrid policies and has had serious legal issues. The management is essentially self interested and is running UNT like a "business" rather than a University. This is unhealthy and is out for profit, not education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work democratically, do not just make decisions for your benefit, and understand that your faculty are important and without them the University could not function.

    Current Employee - IT Manager I in Denton, TX

    I have been working at University of North Texas full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    UNT is a great place to work for someone who is willing to look at the holistic benefits. While they may not offer the most competitive rates, potential is great. They are improving in the way they handle the business side of things, as well as increasing their dependence on analytics. This provides opportunity for people to come in, make a difference, and be somewhat rewarded for their efforts.

    Cons

    Again, the pay is not as competitive as a corporate position. Budgets are smaller, so you may not have the large training opportunities as other corporate. Buildings are generally older, you'll typically be working in a slightly smaller environment.....but the campus overall is enormous and nicely landscaped.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say continue to focus on analytics, and provide training to staff as you expect different efforts from their previously defined roles. Keep the focus (for the most part) on students, and the learning environment for all persons on the campus, staff included.
