    Pros

    Amazing supervisor, great culture, really fun co-workers, easy process to switch hours occasionally, lots of freedom to work on interesting projects, sometimes time to do homework at work

    Cons

    Not the highest pay, but for a 10 hour/week on-campus job it is not really all that bad

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on!

    Pros

    The hours and benefits are amazing, the work can be rewarding

    Cons

    As an SDA I feel I am not living up to my title at times, very little challenge and the pay is not so bueno (Expected from a public university though)

    Advice to Management

    Some teams are in dire need of consolidation. Other than that keep up the good work

    Pros

    The size of the institution doesn't seem to interfere too much with maintaining policies, procedures, etc. This coming from a student employee perspective. Nice benefits.

    Cons

    Student employment has distinct limitations such as no vacation or sick days.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your GRA's more professionally.

    Great way to learn the ropes of a college institution. Good coworkers.

    Terrible pay and benefits. Parking is atrocious. Extremely outdated equipment... Even the phones were relics of the 70s.

    Pros

    The work-life balance is great. Austin has so many activities. The weather and culture here in austin is great.

    Cons

    The benefits in general is good. But the living cost in Austin keeps increasing. The salary has been fixed for a while.

    Advice to Management

    The main campus is crowed. It is really hard to find a parking place. Maybe we should consider adding some parking slots.

  10. Sliding downhill fast

    Pros

    Not all the good people have left yet.

    Cons

    Between the 10% rule and Rick Perry's efforts to eliminate research, this once great university is on the verge of collapse.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to being an academic institution. Stop trying to make this a community college. Bring back Bill Powers.
