    Enjoyment Depends on the Team You Work With

    Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsThere's quite a bit of flexibility in the GA position. Depending on who you're working for you don't necessarily have to work in office. Great way to get to know faculty/researchers. Perfect way to build your CV and gain research skills/experiences. If you want to stay in academia there's no better way to get plugged into future opportunities.

    ConsEnvironment can often feel contentious and competitive - this can depend on the department you base out of. Not much support for those wishing to go into a corporate environment post graduation. Opportunities for advancement are limited - mainly a position used as a jumping off point.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCould improve on the mentorship of GA's. Encouragement and support are extremely important in building confidence to do high level research.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great faculty and resources. Many intelligent classmates. Great place to network and learn.

    Graduate Student (Current Employee) Richardson, TX

    ProsThe UT system has many resources and much funding, so finding a job on campus isn't too difficult. In almost every course I've taken the professor are teaching you practical skills. Many research opportunities for some majors.

    ConsThe class sizes are very big, which means the faculty are often too busy to give individuals much attention. The evaluation of a student's performance is primarily based on examinations. From my experience, If you're interested in research as an undergrad, many such opportunities exist for certain majors; however, much less for other majors (e.g. Mathematics or liberal arts).

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to the faculty: Shift performance evaluation from examinations to projects.

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