No opinion of CEO

I worked at University of Tennessee part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

-Basically get to "audit" classes and learn interesting subjects
-Choose your schedule
-Convenient for college students
-No uniform or constant supervision

Cons

-You don't get paid much or at all if the student does not show up to class
-You end up putting in unpaid time walking to the classes and to the office to copy your notes
-You cannot really talk to anyone in the class and they will wonder why you don't show up for exams

Advice to Management

Hopefully the pay has been raised since 2010 because it isn't much when you really think about it.

    I have been working at University of Tennessee full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great support with Student Life Division, excellent professionals to work with, work with top employer brands, great student base and excellent business and engineering colleges. Knoxville is a great blend of lifestyles and solid middle class. Could be a more diverse environment but improvements are being made. Downtown revitilization is helping make Knoxville a great place for recent grads to start their careers.

    Cons

    State budgets, politics and some leadership turnover. Lofty goals and objectives will lead to improvements although it remains unlcear if final goals will be reached. More and more emphasis on private financial support makes success seem overly dependent on the state of the economy.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to strive for the ability for UT to make its own decisions independent from the UT System.
