- Approves of CEO
I have been working at Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board full-time
Company is not all work work work. Several agency events and lovely people.
Absolutely behind in our systems/ technology for work! It's frustrating for workers and customers. It's known all around and just not up to par for 2015. I-35 traffic also, just the cost of Austin living.
Advice to Management
More connectivity with upper levels is always a plus. Definitely not a deal breaker here though.

I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (Austin, TX).
"Supervisor" was seriously mentally ill. Called in from out of town for an interview to take place two days later. Interview lasted about an hour with a committee and superficial obvious questions. Was called back for a 2nd interview FOUR DAYS LATER! And a one day notice...hundreds of miles away, which they clearly knew. "Supervisor" could not attend the first interview and wanted to meet me. Went back with the same committee plus one and "supervisor." SAME QUESTIONS! "Supervisor" grandstanded, was incoherent, rambled, couldn't follow a question. It was OVERTLY clear that this was no place to work. But I had been looking for several months. The ONE and ONLY reason I stepped in to this pile was because I was currently unemployed and needed to get to work.
There was none. They dishonestly advertised a salary range. "Supervisor" said, "It would not be fair if I paid you more than other new hires." "Fair'! Isn't that a word that children use. THECB allows for a flexible daily work hours. "Supervisor" did not allow flexibility and demanded that hours coincide with his/hers.
