    Pros

    Long Vacation during Christmas, Friendly co-workers, flexible schedule, team values, beautiful campus, steady workflow (never bored), a community that cares about your opinion

    Cons

    Non-negotiable pay since it is a state entity, can be quite hard to even get an interview because of the hiring process, cannot work through lunch hour

    Advice to Management

    Set clear goals. Think about what your team shouldn't be spending time on. You can’t give too much positive feedback, as long as it’s sincere

    Pros

    Great community, football team, and undergraduate program.

    Cons

    Heavily oriented towards bureaucracy; takes too long to get things through the system. Lacks diversity.

    Advice to Management

    You spend more money creating multiple layers of bureaucracy that are not value adding and cost the taxpayers money.

    Pros

    You will get to know how a class is prepared and can build an intimate connection with a lecturer, and this is the most important thing that you will need.

    Cons

    There are no cons I can think of. You can probably work in a worse situation if you get a hard professor.

    Pros

    Because of the size, the networking and resources are almost endless. You'll find someone you know who could connect you to further your career. Working at the school as a student is great because your bosses understand school is food and are flexible with schedules.

    Cons

    It is a public education institution so there are limitations on pay and branching out in terms of skills and creativity.

    Advice to Management

    Doing well with what you can!

    Pros

    Austin's low cost of living makes the meager post-doc salary ok.

    Cons

    Postdoc-ing is con. Leave academia.

    Advice to Management

    Stop flooding the market with PhDs.
