    I have been working at Texas Womans University part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    TWU is a pretty good place to work depending on why you're here. From my observations, being full time here is hit or miss, and really depends on your boss. However, I was able to glimpse into various facets of the Student Life division as a student, and can say, for the most part, the environment here is great for students and staff alike.

    Cons

    Most of the cons at TWU involve general environment or leadership depending on who you're working for. For students, I've seen both great and really bad situations. Student assistants can be entrusted with more the longer you stay, but it really depends. For full time workers, it is expected you'll make less here than you can in the private sector.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay up to date with your teams, what's going on, and try not to stay too traditional in your thinking. One of the biggest mistakes I've seen here with upper leadership involves them not really thinking through what really needs to be addressed.

    I have been working at Texas Womans University full-time

    Pros

    Nice campus, empowering women to become professionals, good programs, recruits non-traditional students who are first-time college graduates.

    Cons

    Faculty are not valued and this is reflected in the salary. Administration does not fight to keep faculty and they expect a lot of research productivity with little release time and poor compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about what motivates students to attend TWU and strengthen the University by giving merit raises and cost of living increases. It is terrible that there is no plan in place to reward hard working faculty and the same low raises are across the board. That lowers morale and tells the diligent faculty that their efforts are not worthwhile. The good faculty tend to leave for better opportunities and the mediocre ones stay at TWU because there are no repercussions for laziness.

    Pros

    Wonderful learning experience while working with what I will always consider family. Mentoring was second to none, and I will truly miss working here.

    Cons

    Salaries aren't great and there is limited room for advancement. Internship opportunities could have been very beneficial for the students.

    I have been working at Texas Womans University part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some of the pros of working at the Math and Technology Success Center at Texas Woman's University are: positive working environment, gain experience (by teaching someone else, you are also learning), great team of tutors who are willing to help anytime, the best coordinator and director.

    Cons

    Sometimes the student tutors won't be able to help you, but they will direct you to a faculty who can help you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job!

    I worked at Texas Womans University part-time

    Pros

    Got your own room. (They have phased this out in recent years.) Great people to work with. Awesome leadership experience. Life-long friends.

    Cons

    No support from management; bad compensation for everything that you're doing. Unruly residents; not enough space in the residence halls. Ridiculous amounts of programs RAs are required to plan. If residents don't come, it's the RA's fault.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating your RAs better. They should get their own rooms with everything that they have to deal with. Build more residence halls instead of packing three and four students into rooms meant for two people. Start supporting these students who are giving a lot of their time and effort in making the residence halls a better place.
