    Proud to work here - left due to supervisor issues and advancement potential

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsHard work is appreciated by some. Decent benefit package. 8-5 work schedule most days. Most employees and faculty acted professionally and were a pleasure to be around.

    ConsSupervisor lacked training on dealing with employees and had unreasonable expectations concerning job duties. Sometimes lax on safety protocols, especially doing field work. Most positions have no room for promotion potential without obtaining further education. Lower than average compensation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove supervisor training or remove supervisors who don't communicate effectively. Remove red tape concerning promotions/pay increases.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Student Worker

    Student Worker (Current Employee)
    College Station, TX

    ProsThe faculty are very courteous, understanding of student schedules, and provide a great workplace environment. Being at a University, they are very mindful if you are a full-time student and don't mind if you work on schoolwork during downtime.

    ConsThere are not any particular downsides to a position as a student worker, aside from the obvious cons that are characteristic of the position. Such features include no advancement or increase in pay that you might see in a job outside of a student worker position.

    Advice to Senior ManagementComing from an academic institution that prides itself on it's ethics and integrity, it is always important to abide by the Aggie honor code.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
