I have been working at University of Texas at Austin full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

- Diverse campus with interesting people and inspiring work
- Located in a great city
- For the most part, job security
- Retirement benefits are pretty nice

Cons

- Too much red tape
- Concerns about potential legal repercussions often stifle innovation

Advice to Management

- Consider giving staff the same retirement benefits faculty enjoy
- Organizational communication needs improvement; the divide between academics and administrators seems to be growing in difficult economic times.
