    Former Employee - Student Worker in College Station, TX

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

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    As 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 ManagementAdvice

    Give credit where credit is due.

    Pros

    State benefits are good for families.

    Cons

    Politics, politics, politics. Subject to Texas A&M policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Backbone & Spine are needed.
    Get rid of the buddy system of promotions and promote those that are qualified, or go out and get someone qualified. Years of Experience IS NOT EQUAL to QUALIFICATIONS

    Pros

    This 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.

    Cons

    TEEX 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 ManagementAdvice

    Use technology to offer services at a more affordable rate.

    Pros

    Overall, 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Overall, 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.
