    I have been working at University of Texas System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a state agency so we have great insurance benefits. There's a great wellness program that is growing and getting stronger. You can actually retire with an annuity and insurance. This organization is full of really smart, hard-working people. The size of the organization allows for huge potential to affect change. In some departments telecommuting is allowed. The new chancellor is very interested in collaboration and is working hard to facilitate system-wide communication. Overall, the people really do care about each other. Most people do not work over time.

    Cons

    As a very established public employer, there are some antiquated systems and processes. There is less vacation than you might think for government work, and you can't take any time off until you've been employed at least 6 months. Building a career here can be difficult unless you play a really long game and wait for people to retire. There is no succession planning or career path because many people are content to hang out and wait for retirement. Pay can be on the lower side.

    Advice to Management

    Involve all levels of employees according to their interests and strengths. Communicate, communicate, communicate. Provide feedback throughout the year--not just at appraisal time. Allow employees some flexibility in their work environment. Be aware of your department's reputation as some departments are known as being better than others for employee satisfaction.

    Senior Storage Administrator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Texas System (Dallas, TX) in April 2016.

    Interview

    One interview with the recruiter following a review of the job description that was emailed. Next, a 30 minute phone call with the recruiter describing the role, the company, people, environment based on job responsibility that the manager passed along. My experience with government opportunities have been similar to this respect. Very limited interview process following the vetting. Three offers at the time were on the table for me. After a review of all three, University of Texas System had the best overall career-wise track for me. I accepted the opportunity the following day.
