    Pros

    They are so friendly and really accommodate with your school schedule, and they really train you how to work in a professional work environment.

    Cons

    The pay is not extremely great, but it is a university. They are so flexible to accommodate your schedule that it makes up for the not so great pay.

    Advice to Management

    Management is so great, and they are really helpful. I have had no complaints about working here because it is such a great environment.

  3. Great place to work!

    Pros

    It depends solely on your advisor/research group though. I get a great deal of independence and sense of ownership of my work. Salary is great for a small town like Lubbock, TX.

    Cons

    Lubbock is a small town. Apart from that I love working at Texas Tech!

    Pros

    Very willing to work with schedules and offering good options for lots of people. High-level employer with lots of reach to several industries in the area.

    Cons

    Competitive salaries but not significantly competitive when looking at bigger markets. Located in Lubbock which is very removed and can be difficult to move out of the region just because of it's isolation.

    Advice to Management

    Great work on keeping employees happy, I'd recommend more opportunities for professional advancement or professional training to grow skills.

    Pros

    Working for the university as a graduate student assistant was wonderfully convenient. The staff and faculty understand your priorities as a student which make them flexible with your workload and hours.

    Cons

    I personally did not face any negative experiences in the department that I worked in. Each research assistant position depends on who you're working for and what they require you to do. In my case, I love my job and I have a wonderful supervisor.
