fantastic place to work and go to school

Student Worker (Current Employee)
College Station, TX

I have been working at Texas A&M part-time for more than 3 years

ProsThere is fantastic office culture here in the office I work in. It is easy to balance work and classes. I have had the opportunity for a lot of personal growth in several different positions here, and it has also altered my career path.

ConsI haven't really come across anything I would consider a con. I have had an extremely positive experience here.

Love it here

Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee)
College Station, TX

I have been working at Texas A&M full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThere are abundant resources for performing research with, including facilities for synthesis and characterization. Access to the literature via the library is second to none. We have a steady stream of visitors that allow for the exchange of ideas.

ConsThe Chemistry Building is old and there are perennial problems during the winter and during wet weather. While graduate students' stipend has increased, it is still lower than I would prefer, especially since the cost of living in College Station is increasing.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook into graduate student salaries, update working spaces.

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