    I have been working at University of Texas at Austin full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You will meet some of the friendliest people in your life. My instructor with whom I work is very supportive. She eventually became my mentor. The department that I worked for was small, but still, the experience was incredible.

    Cons

    Not too many downsides. I was working more hours than I was supposed to. Also, it was difficult getting a day off from work.

  2. Backwards-facing institution with no room for meaningful growth

    I have been working at University of Texas at Austin full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most people are laid back. Relative job security/stability. Excellent health insurance (UT is self-funded). Good paid-time-off.

    Cons

    Some people are annoyingly "quirky" (many people working here are only here because they aren't normal enough to hold down a job in the private sector). Most software development involves 30+ year old 4GL/databases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The sooner you switch to a modern platform the sooner you can stop throwing money away trying to teach secretaries how to write computer programs.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
