A graduate student's perspective from the hall's of academic work.

Teaching Assistant (Current Employee)
Arlington, TX

I have been working at University of Texas at Arlington part-time for more than 5 years

Pros- An opportunity to finish your education and work at the same time.
- Obtaining an advanced degree while working in your chosen field is something that many never have the opportunity to pursue (and the degree can't typically be taken away from you!).

Cons- Low pay and issues in the dept. (and education system as a whole) are cause for concern. Other schools might provide a better experience (and future prospects).
- Ties with area engineering companies seem to be rocky or non-existent at best.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's a different environment from most businesses - and therefore outside of typical considerations.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

GRA and Full Time Student

Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee)
Arlington, TX

I worked at University of Texas at Arlington full-time for more than a year

ProsI am able to work, and through work get hands on experience, a thesis, and school paid for. Plus my supervising professor is the best. They are also very understanding in my choice for my own career path, and support the decisions I make for choosing classes.

ConsUTA administration is a little slow to get things done, but it is a big school. The classes are well, meh. And there is a lot of red tape, and rules to always be sure of. But again, it is a big place and kind of expected.

Advice to Senior ManagementI don't think downsizing various administration departments is helping anyone...

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
