Current Employee - Administrative Assistant I in Richardson, TX

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

Pros

If you know the right people you can advance, or move to a new position on campus.

Cons

You really need to know the right people on campus to go anywhere.
Most of upper management bases their decisions on personal feelings and not necessarily the most qualified person.
No Maternity leave, just short term disability.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look for people who are strong workers, don't base all decisions on who you personally like. Good workers make the office flow, bad ones that you like make the office stop. Also, offer some maternity leave instead of just short term disability.

    I have been working at University of Texas System full-time

    Pros

    Working on a college campus is a great environment coming from the corporate world. There is a lot of support from peers and supervisors and it is refreshing to work with young students. My favorite thing about my job is helping students from their freshman year here and being able to watch them grow through there time here.

    Cons

    Parking is a challenge since this is such a large University. If you live far away or if you are going to be working odd hours, public transportation is way too slow and may not be running at convenient times.
