    I have been working at University of Texas at Austin

    Pros

    Austin is a great city.

    Cons

    Heavily politicized management/governance; faculty senate powerless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lift all boats to improve morale; insanely high salaries for the chosen few erodes loyalty.

    I worked at University of Texas at Austin part-time (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keeping on!

    I worked at University of Texas at Austin

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Treat your GRA's more professionally.
