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

Pros

Great benefits, paid holidays, sick and vacation. Paid leave for Winter closing at the end of each year. You can transfer within the university after 6 months and there are endless opportunities. A great place to get your feet wet.

Cons

No pay equity research conducted and often the only way to get a salary commensurate with your duties is to transfer within the university or leave. Some of the employees have a "state worker" mentality and they are counting the days to retirement. Ineffective management in many areas who are often promoted because they have "worked" in an area longer than everyone. Not as stable in the past because donations are down and many top salaries outdo industry. At some point you have to decide if you want to become a lifer or have diverse work experience.

Advice to Management

Operate like a business and let the cream rise to the top. Implement processes and procedures to ensure departments run efficiently, do not reward employees who take off all their leave every month with raises equal to those of employees who show up. Have benchmarks for excellence and enforce them, so that sub-standard work is identified. Conduct a salary survey, some administrative employees are making more than professionals just because of salary ranges.
