Current Employee - Residential Life and Housing Student Worker in Houston, TX
Current Employee - Residential Life and Housing Student Worker in Houston, TX

I have been working at University of Houston full-time (less than a year)

Pros

I met more students on a personal level and established more friendships than in my classes.

Cons

Minimum wage. The most highly skilled individuals are classified as unskilled labor. This is simply to say that the University gets premium quality individuals, both intellectually and culturally, while paying them minimum wage. No flexibility regrinds schedule.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your student workers as the competent and capable individuals they are.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, friendly environment, and an aesthetically pleasing campus are the main highlights of UH.

    Cons

    Location in the city, although central, is not the safest albeit not the most dangerous. Nobody should be alone at night on campus or the apartment complexes within close proximity to campus. Antiquated promotion system, inconsistent leadership at the top with visions that different from those actually implementing plans. Virtually no school pride, although it is better than in the 80's and 90's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    University leadership has a vision, but not necessarily the right one for the school. Attaining Tier One status is a great goal, but there is so much other issues that must be addressed first. Most offices are understaffed for the number of students at the university. Although some process are automated, there are no procedures for issues that fall outside the "rules" of the system.

    Cons

    Extremely unsafe, very cumbersome and outdated university system.
