I worked at University of Houston Downtown part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great place to work if you are also a student. Very flexible when it comes to hours and days off. My department had a great environment with bosses that were knowledgeable, fair and caring.

Cons

Some Co-workers were unreliable and untrustworthy; consistency varies by departments. Some were good like the ones I worked while others were incompetent.

Advice to Management

Enforce better hiring practices with their workers

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

    Pros

    Some of the smaller perks (time off during the day to go to the gym or take a class) are nice.

    Cons

    Pay is not that good compared to the private sector. You end up wearing a lot a hats and doing the work of several people. Communication is poor through departments and management. Benefits are so-so. No master plan for campus expansion or clear direction for university has been created or provided.

    Advice to Management

    Time to make changes in upper management. Fresh blood is needed to help provide a clearer more efficient direction for the university. Also, retrain or get rid of some of the less than stellar managers. It drags everyone in the department down.
