    I have been working at University of Texas at Austin full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    winter break; leave policy (carryover vacation and sick time from year to year); campus atmosphere; health insurance is okay (same or better in most corporations); free access to public transportation; the staff educational benefit is potentially useful, but it has some silly limitations, so do some research to make sure it will apply to the program you are interested in

    Cons

    The classified staff person's experience at UT is drastically different from the A&P, executive, academic or athletic division experience and hugely disappointing. Pay is extremely low and raises are rare (and typically a fraction of what they should be). Parking is expensive (use public transportation if possible); the vision insurance isn't as good as in most corporations; the distributed administrative and management system is inefficient and hampers innovation and promotion pathways. The current effort to fix this isn't very promising as it appears it is being managed haphazardly and primarily as a power grabbing opportunity. It's a good place to lay low for awhile; otherwise, give it a miss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executive and academic elitism destroys morale and creates a very stagnant business environment.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
