    I have been working at University of Texas at Arlington full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work environment over here is quite good. There are enough facilities both for the students and for the teachers to teach effectively. The department is helpful enough.

    Cons

    There is a lack of proper authority. The authority should care about its employees and listen to their issues and try to solve that. The authority should pay attention to the meetings and discussions and take necessary steps in order to address those.

    Pros

    It is aiming for tier 1 university, so has increased campus constructions. Good locations, cheap rent, and in DFW area.

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

    Pros

    Job stability, lots of available overtime, annual retention bonus and GREAT benefits. Room for growth is limited depending on which department you specifically work for. Pay could also be better in comparison to other higher learning institutions in the area.

    Cons

    Company values were not actively portrayed through the staff and employees. Mandatory overtime can sometimes cause a difficult work-life balance. Depending on specific department, often times the company culture can be quite childish and petty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and allow their input to effectively be heard and considered.

    Pros

    You can study and work at the same time.
    You can be around your professors and get their help

    Cons

    The compensation is not that good, but for international students there is in-state tuition so that is okay

    I have been working at University of Texas at Arlington part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked part-time for the apartment and residence life for roughly a year and I really enjoyed it. The staff was great and I soon made many friends, it felt like a second family away from home.
    Because I was living on campus, working for the university was advantageous as there wasn't any driving required. Thanks to this job I was able to attend several retreats that benefit me both an academic and professional way.
    The work schedule is also flexible and the supervisors are understanding.

    Cons

    Compensation.
    Some employees weren't doing their job and I soon had to "compensate" for what they weren't doing.. (Although soon enough a supervisor noticed and the situation was fixed)

    I have been working at University of Texas at Arlington part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    It's nice that the school is so relaxed. It really gives you a chance to focus on your work and not worry about all the side stuff that comes with being in academia.

    Cons

    The bad thing about it being so relaxed and small is that you can get too comfortable with the pace here. It is slow and sometimes your progress may be slow as well. If you are in research, stay educated about things in your field or else you will be outgunned when it's time to apply for grants and research funds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prepare your students for what a competitive environment will feel like if they decide to go that route.
