    Pros

    Most of the faculty are excellent to work with

    TAs are typically understaffed and paid half of what most universities pay

    Pros

    The salary is well above average for research or teaching assistants.

    Cons

    The school only brings engineering and business related companies to recruit for internships and CO-OPs. If your major is science or something else, you are screwed.

    Advice to Management

    Bring more companies for science. I guess there should be one or two interested in hiring biology, chemistry, physics?

    Pros

    The job is fairly simple, not much to do for the most part.

    Cons

    Not having much to do is a con to me. I wanted experience in technologies that I haven't seen. I wanted to know the boundaries of my capabilities, and I also wanted a full time position after graduation.

    In short, no space to grow at all.

    Advice to Management

    Try to find work to do for everyone, time is money.

    Pros

    State benefits. Nobody cares, so just look busy from 8 to 5 and you will be fine. This is across the board, from interns to top administrators.

    Cons

    It's all propaganda. Most claims the University makes about its achievements are fake/mislieading. No leadership at any level. No values. No rewards or incentives.

    Advice to Management

    Cut administrators salaries in half. Reduce the size of the administration by half. Treat teaching-faculty better. Force research faculty to teach more. Care about students.

    Research facility is good and awesome.

    Usually nothing. I think the campus is not so big but not a great deal.

    Be more efficient

    Pros

    Multi-cultural environment with a mostly bilingual population. Excellent housing opportunities in and outside of campus. Great investments in the Computer Science and Engineering departments that make UTEP rapidly becoming a role model for other institutions.

    Cons

    Lack of student jobs in the departments of Art and Humanities.

    Advice to Management

    Open more positions for students in the Art Department.

    Pros

    We have a lot of power over creativity and how we execute our events
    Huge desk and storage space
    We run our own meetings
    Work directly with students and hear from them then they vote on events

    Cons

    Work high profile events so we don't get to enjoy it
    Not much communication between departments on the inside

    Advice to Management

    Do an internal communication review
