Pros

Very great people working with you. Employers are very willing to work with your schedule if you are a student.

Cons

Austin is getting very crowded, therefore the drive to campus is a bit difficult. This is especially true during lunch time!

    Pros

    good insurance, great vacation and sick leave, laid back, excellent retirement plan, more secure and stable than private industry

    Cons

    not a lot of room for growth, salaries are on the low side, bureaucracy sometimes protects and sometimes restricts, politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the employees you have and create as much room for growth and raises as possible. Respect staff as a vital part of the University.

    Fun if you already bleed orange but overall staff are undervalued

    Current Employee - Program Coordinator  in  Austin, TX
    Current Employee - Program Coordinator in Austin, TX

    Pros

    Good benefits (especially the staff education benefit, health insurance and retirement options), work environments can be great depending on your supervisor. There are a lot of trainings and there can be room for growth, but it may require switching departments or colleges.

    Cons

    Salary is not commensurate with experience or comparable positions elsewhere; there's no adjusting for cost of living increases. Ironically, education is undervalued by hiring managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look around and imagine the faculty and students trying to get by without the staff who make sure the buildings are ready, bills are paid and paperwork is processed. UT needs to do a much better job at providing raises, job progression and allowing for career growth of its staff.
