    Pros

    Everyone is friendly. Someone will always greet you with a smile.
    Family oriented community.
    Training is always accessible. There are seminars within departments.

    Cons

    If you don't want to be around college students, I would suggest not working at a university. Hours are strict... pretty much 9-5.

    Pros

    Wonderful women, lovely campus, great speakers and events to attend. HR sponsors great programs.

    Cons

    Still heavily weighted with men in the upper echelons. Truly the women have to be twice as good to be thought of as half as good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take off the gender blinders!

    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant in Fort Worth, TX

    I worked at TCU part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Working in Student Affairs during a restructuring and facility enhancements did not take away from the camaraderie and cordiality among my colleagues. Very well-organized but not micro-managed, Student Affairs stood out as a very satisfied division.

    Cons

    The students aren't all terrible, but in fact friendly and cordial. However their lack of imagination and creativity was sometimes frightening. Human Resources needs an internal audit as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Student Affairs understands current trends in higher education, but are some of these trends worth adding to the price of tuition? There also seems to be a large divide among divisions. I sometimes felt like I didn't know anyone else outside of my division!

    I worked at TCU as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The Benefits are great, the management is good and I always felt as though they really cared about their employees, much more than any other company I have ever worked for. If I ever have the opportunity to work for TCU again I would jump on it.

    Cons

    It is extremely difficult to get a job at TCU because of the sheer volume of people that apply for jobs here.

    Be more intentional with support for underrepresented groups.

    I worked at TCU as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working limited hours, ability to focus on school/life balance
    Get to meet so many people and great staff within the Student Accounts Department
    Hours are M-F, 8ish til 5ish; no weekends!

    Cons

    Limited hours, so if you want to make great money (as a student worker), look elsewhere.
    People can find you if they know you (asking for favors when you have no power)
    No benefits as a student worker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I greatly appreciated the opportunity to work there for 3 years while I was in school; I found it hard to work there after I graduated, but other than that - Wendy Crowley was the best!

    I worked at TCU part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Attention was paid consistently in several positions to ensuring your well-being and development. Management at almost all levels was friendly, accessible, responsive and open to new ideas.

    Cons

    Poor synergy between different offices in the institution. Offices didn’t share ideas and resources with each other, which could lead to inefficiency and unnecessarily repeated efforts across offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to promote more synergy and communication between offices.
