    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

    Great people and staff with a lot of opportunities for overtime. As a work study student, this was a great way to learn work culture and how to succeed.

    Cons

    There are no cons to working here. I had a pleasurable experience here and would recommend working here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. You have a great team and provide students like me the opportunity to get a great education and make a little money on the side.

    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.

    Pros

    -The culture/ team work at UT is great: I love the atmosphere and the dedication of the Department of Communication Studies. An active open door policy keeps our department culture very successful and friendly. -The Moody College of Communication at UT delivers ongoing in-depth training for both researchers and practitioners, which is helpful for my professional development in most communication areas.

    Cons

    -Since students are only allowed to work as part-time staff on campus, the pay was not very competitive.

    Pros

    Its a challenging place to work with seriously dedicated smart people. The department is highly professional and competent, customer service is very important, and they are always trying to make things better for the university.

    Cons

    If you're creative, it's very frustrating. All projects move very slowly and sometimes never get implemented. The salaries are not competitive with the private sector.

    Advice to Management

    If you can't pay people due to budget constraints, go the extra mile to seek out opportunities to encourage your staff. The morale wasn't great when I was there. I didn't feel like there was real collaboration and experimentation.


  11. Part-time as student- Office of Survey Research

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

    Pros

    -Flexible schedule for full-time students -Surrounded by peers -Nearby campus if you're a UT student and on UT shuttle route.

    Cons

    -We had a couple of months of downtime due to the research study being temporarily suspended but we were all contacted promptly as soon as the study was resumed.

    Advice to Management

    The only piece of advice I would have to offer is to warn students about possible downtime during their part-time employment.
