I worked at University of North Texas full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

UNT maintains a collegial and collaborative environment where consensus is valued. There is an abundance of positive energy within the UNT workforce Many of the top-level managers have progressive attitudes toward change

Cons

UNT is not as salary competitive as the broader market There is not as strong an alignment of strategic objectives and resources as there could be under the current threats to the sector

Advice to Management

Two things: 1) Continue to accelerate the process toward evidence-based management. 2) Continue to embrace diversity - gender, racial, ethnic, cultural, intellectual, and philosophical - this is a strong draw and compelling reason to love the institution.

    I worked at University of North Texas part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    + Well maintained wiki. + Very hands on. + Student workers very intelligent, motivated. + Student workers are innovative. + Many opportunities for growth, both soft skills and technical. + IT support staff are intelligent and know their stuff. + Managers are laid back and helpful. + University culture is laid back and doesn't try to rush you as much as other business cultures. + College of Arts & Sciences has a virtualized server infrastructure that is flexible and meets staff needs. + Culture is not so bureaucratic that you can't try out new things and be outcome oriented.

    Cons

    - Working part time as a student and also being a full time student is very demanding. - You risk falling behind in school and failing classes while getting good work experience. ~ You must have an excellent way to collect and process everything you do: work, school, personal.

    Advice to Management

    Advise student workers to switch to a IT related classes, as the training will be a better fit for their work experience and will prevent them from having conflicting goals.

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

    Pros

    The work schedules tend to be very flexible for students, making it possible to balance work and classes. Great job skills and troubleshooting abilities learned that are useful, as well as ability to work alone or in groups.

    Cons

    Poor department management leaves a lot to be desired. The coordinator rarely offers much assistance to stumped technicians and the manager tends to create distractions to avoid his actual duties, setting a poor example for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up and organize the upper ranks. It isn't fair to the students when they begin having to clean up the mess management creates by not performing their duties.
