  1. "Student Assistant"

    Pros

    Very great people working with you. Employers are very willing to work with your schedule if you are a student.

    Cons

    Austin is getting very crowded, therefore the drive to campus is a bit difficult. This is especially true during lunch time!

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

    Pros

    Good benefits (especially the staff education benefit, health insurance and retirement options), work environments can be great depending on your supervisor. There are a lot of trainings and there can be room for growth, but it may require switching departments or colleges.

    Cons

    Salary is not commensurate with experience or comparable positions elsewhere; there's no adjusting for cost of living increases. Ironically, education is undervalued by hiring managers

    Advice to Management

    Take a look around and imagine the faculty and students trying to get by without the staff who make sure the buildings are ready, bills are paid and paperwork is processed. UT needs to do a much better job at providing raises, job progression and allowing for career growth of its staff.
