    I have been working at University of Texas System full-time

    Pros

    Small office, wonderful temporary office space and the rank and file are pleasant to work with

    Cons

    Management does not know what they are doing because they lack overall experience. It may be because they are Academics who couldn't make it in academia so took the next option available to them to the detriment of the System.

    Advice to Management

    The System really needs to evaluate this office and the leadership in charge.

    Pros

    University of Texas at Austin is, generally speaking, a really good company to work for. The management, at least in my department, seem to genuinely care about their people. UT has an excellent comp time policy and they are really focused on the work/life balanced, possibly unrivaled. The paid time off is reasonable although I've had better. Scheduling vacation is generally pretty easy unless you are indispensable (a pro and a con, depending on your situation). Work is often interesting and challenging. There is room for promotion and growth for most, especially more junior developers.

    Cons

    They don't believe in pay raises. Annually you might get a merit bonus. Health, dental, and vision insurance available at a price is OK, coverage is OK not amazing. Vacation scheduling is a bit more strict if you are indispensable. They don't believe in pay raises (I've said this again on purpose). Possibly limited growth (promotion) potential for seasoned developers.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees enough to at least track cost of living.
