    Works for those committed to university's mission, not for those wanting pay

    I have been working at University of Texas at Austin

    Pros

    Lots of interesting and hard work available given the tremendous scale. You can make a difference *if* you are willing to stick with things. It is "efficient", which in a positive way is a challenge.

    Cons

    Not a place to be if status/salary are drivers (unless you are faculty). It is "efficient", which in a negative way means you are under constant economic pressures not experienced at typical business.

    Former Employee - Graduate Teaching Assistant  in  Austin, TX

    I worked at University of Texas at Austin

    Pros

    -Comprehensive benefits for student workers
    -Access to libraries, sports facilities and other amenities
    -As an out of state Graduate Teaching Assistant, I received crucial tuition benefits and in-state status that enabled me not to take out gargantuan loans

    Cons

    -workload can vary tremendously depending on your professor
    -class size may be 50 students one semester, to 100+ the next (as a liberal arts TA)
    -miscommunication between yourself and professor can be painful, especially when it comes to grading standards or classroom etiquette

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Major budgetary cutbacks put high levels of stress on near-PhD instructors and TA's. A class with over 100 students badly needs two TA's to manage the level of feedback you get from students
