    Pros

    Relatively easy work. A lot of opportunities to talk to professionals in your field and build relationships early.

    Cons

    Not very strict. Self-driven, meaning that if you don't ask for more work, you won't be given more work. It's easy to find work by stopping by people's offices to see if they have anything for you to do, but on the other hand, if you don't want to work that day, no one will check up on you.

    Advice to Management

    Plan work schedules.


  3. An excellent introduction to research

    Pros

    The projects are interesting, and undergraduates are given great perks and treated respectfully where I am. The pay is fair and the hours are flexible.

    Cons

    As a part-time student worker, sometimes important deadlines can be too demanding, and require a lot of outside hours, stress, and pressure.

    Advice to Management

    I really don't deal with upper management.

    Pros

    Research budgets are NOT an issue
    If you can dream it ( and talk a good game ) you can do it
    with so little supervision, you can pursue whatever you like

    Cons

    Research topics are limited to commercial applicability
    Projects tend to take longer than expected
    Environment tends to become 'clique' among

    Advice to Management

    We come to work with the worlds best minds, but they are never here!

    Pros

    Reputation helps to find the next job, good resources in terms of academia, friendly environment, I had a great boss

    Cons

    old management style, very-low interaction (social meeting) between employees and top managers

    Advice to Management

    Top managers: It is the time to change a bit to adjust to the current demand of the people. Traditional behaviors some times not working.
    My direct adviser: I loved the way you tackle the problems and solve them. Good luck!


  10. Senior management lacks ability to hire people using technical skill sets that match what the role is

    Pros

    College station is a great location (between Austin & Houston), A&M great university to be part of.

    Cons

    Tenure rules even in the technology realm. People that have no real work experience with technology and may be book smart are in leadership positions - but do not know how to apply this knowledge to people and technology roles.

    Advice to Management

    Do RFP's for custom software solutions. Somebody needs to be asking questions like is the solution really scalable? How much will this cost the University down the road to maintain? For technology, hire more vendors. Look in the local communities for local talent - don't hire people from outside the USA - and pay extra money for Visa process etc..or feel compelled to keep people because they are friends or have worked with a hiring manager for a long time. Doesn't mean that they are more qualified. More scrutiny in hiring process as well as better planning for technical projects.

    Advice to Management

    I have not spent enough time at TEES to be in a position to give feedback. I guess they are doing a good job overall.
