    I worked at University of Texas at Austin full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I did feel like I was working for an important cause. The benefits were pretty good. It was fun working for the home of the Texas Longhorns.

    Cons

    The salary I was paid was too low, and me and my coworkers were often treated like children. I understand this was unique to our department , however. Administrative staff in particular were not valued, but seen as interchangeable and expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like grown ups, and value all employees' contributions.
