    Pros

    Great people, great mission, and great students.

    Cons

    Management is flat out incompetent (at least in IT). If you're in IT don't expect to find a job or move within the company unless you're friends with the curent UT crowd and come from UT yourself. In the last year no one in IT has been hired without being a previous UT coworker with one of the current directors and those who are hired are often flat out incompetent without a single day worth of experience in the the position to which they were hired (this includes managers, supervisors, etc). Programmers who say in their cover letter they don't program, supervisors who have never worked in the area they supervise or supervised anyone themselves, the list goes on. Qualifications don't matter, only your friendship with UT crowd is required to get hired.

    The VP, while having a great vision, seems to be quickly losing a political battle to the growing UT crowd most of whom are very keen on his job and not so much on the people they're here to help. It isn't uncommon to hear IT folks directly say they're not here for the students and they're not here for the faculty/staff (leaving their own careers as their only motivation).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the middle management in IT with folks who are both competent and actually care about the students and the mission of the organization they claim to want to be a part of.
