    Pros

    It's a very small affiliate organization of UT Arlington, no more than 15 people working there, so people there are familiar with each other very much. A very good work-life balance. You can learn a lot

    Cons

    Working there is kind of boring, and the promotion is limited because of the small scale, and the salary is not very attractive for intern.

    Pros

    The additional holiday time at end of the year. The environment is laid back.

    Cons

    Management is basically non-existent for most of the university, many heads and titles but not real leadership.There are many people not qualified in positions and remain in them in spite of massive errors or failures. There is no direct career path. The reputation on the inside doesn't live up to the fame on the outside. The practice of hiring based on the good ole system will not take you to the next level. There really isn't true standards campus wide, each department should not operate as an island.

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful to model this campus on other university's in another state. Hiring should be on qualifications not just yes people. In order to be effective and get to the next level you would do well to replace senior management and reorganization.

    Pros

    1. I had a great mentor who supported me for over 5 years in the graduate program
    2. Had lots of opportunity to travel to conferences, research meetings and internship as part of program
    3. Electrical Engineering is very well established in the university
    4. If you keep your head down from the politics, you can get a lot done here - hidden gem sometimes.
    5. University brings a lot of acclaimed speakers, getting notice as it makes moves to a tier-1 school

    Cons

    1.Research backwaters - not very motivated graduate crowd at the time of my study. Pay is super low, but again its Texas without any taxes!
    2. Some of your, mostly asian, colleagues make some real low skeeving political moves
    3. Being motivated through long periods in a unstimulating environment maybe hard - Arlington is a commuter school
    4. You probably cannot become a faculty member in the USA with UTA credentials - but solid research experience

    Advice to Management

    0. More openness and transparency in administration, tests, awards
    1. Focus on recruiting better students
    2. Focus on more graduate student organized activities
