    I have been working at University of Texas at Austin full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, though they seem slightly reduced every year. The fringe benefits, access to classes, employee discounts etc., make it worth the trouble.

    Cons

    Just as in private sector, there have been lay-offs, re-orgs, RIF's etc. These things aren't always communicated well. There's a constant cycle of "let's decentralize to save money" followed by, "let's centralize everything to save money." That gets old pretty quickly but the U never seems to learn what works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate honestly, clearly and early. It seems like it should be obvious, unfortunately it's not.

    Pros

    Well-rounded, great place to feel connected.

    Cons

    When it comes to contract work with the university, payment may come 6-8 weeks following work. Frustrating!
