Unappreciated

Student Worker (Former Employee)
College Station, TX

I worked at Texas Engineering Extension Service part-time for more than a year

ProsThe pay is pretty good for a student worker position and in the summer you can usually hit some over time hours which is pretty nice.

ConsAs a student worker you will be the most overworked under appreciated worker on the field. Expect to do things you don't know how to do and expect to be given a talking to when you screw it up.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive credit where credit is due.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Overall, was a great place to work, filled with experiences that not many jobs offer, especially under one title.

TEEX review

Training Manager (Current Employee)
College Station, TX

I have been working at Texas Engineering Extension Service

ProsThis organization serves the citizens of Texas and makes a difference in people's lives. It truely takes education out to the public and local governments on important topics.

ConsTEEX receives a small percentage of its funds from the tax based revenue. Therefore most of its cost to provide its mission essential services must be recovered, often over pricing its services compared to private firms.

Advice to Senior ManagementUse technology to offer services at a more affordable rate.

Great place to work

Project Specialist (Current Employee)
College Station, TX

I have been working at Texas Engineering Extension Service

ProsOverall, TEEX is a great place to work. Because it is part of the Texas A&M System, you experience all of the same benefits as working for Texas A&M. Employees receive generous time off and a best in class benefits package.

ConsThe culture and organization is suited best for older workers, although the organization has recently embarked on an initiative to create a multi-generational workforce.

Advice to Senior ManagementOverall, TEEX is a great place to work. A greater emphasis should be placed on attracting and retaining younger workers whose energy and enthusiasm could add significantly to the culture of the organization.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
