    I worked at University of Texas at Arlington

    Pros

    Great compensation. Benefits were great. flexible schedules meant shifts could be traded as and when needed. colleagues were also friendly.

    Cons

    Not as laid back as I anticipated. Strict work environment considering it was a student-run setting. Would have been better in terms of interaction if it was not strict.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Office culture - consider adjusting the chain of command so supervisor can be reached directly. This was something the other employees also identified.

    Pros

    Technology intensive, you get to learn new stuff everyday. The supervisors at desktop support are very helpful and supportive of student working which fosters a good working environment.

    Cons

    Many times you do not have clear instructions and have to do something to the best of your knowledge. Specially with SecureDoc encryption, the people responsible for managing encryption do not have a proper guideline as to how it needs to be implemented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flow of information should be made better. Instead of techs acting as lone wolves, they should provide information that they come across to everyone.
