    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Texas A & M University - Central Texas full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small campus and student body equals light work loads. Mature student body. Lots of fun events for staff and the general public.

    Cons

    Upper management and HR ignores reports of misconduct, hostile work environments, and discrimination. Document everything! Never trust upper-management and get things in writing.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Your high turn-around rate isn't only military related.

    I had a student worker position that couldn't move up into a full time position.

    none.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Texas A & M University - Central Texas full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    For the most part, everyone is nice. Almost 2 weeks of vacation for Christmas break. Employee scholarship for those attending college. Extremely laid back environment.

    Cons

    Pay is extremely low, but potential to move up is high. The turnover is high because people move (military town) or they get better jobs.

    Pros

    My management team was very understanding to me having children allowed me to work from home on many occasions. It's a small school, so it feels more like a family. Work-life balance was great.

    Cons

    The staff salaries aren't competitive. Pay is very poor.

    Pros

    Opportunity to support military members and their families and the general public achieve their education goals. .

    Cons

    EEO is non-existent. Staff employee's of color are treated like second hand citizens from upper management. The staff do not feel comfortable bringing up concerns because past issues have never been resolved. And any discrimination or unfair treatment get's swept under the rug. There is only promotion, advancement, and job security for the Caucasian sector.

    Advice to Management

    Create a true EEO office. Have a safe place that staff members can truly feel supported and not just management. Listen to the issues the staff of other races are having. Train upper management to be true leaders of people, and not just be someone that has the title.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to impart your vision and innovation into positions and programs that are newly created at this university that began in 2009.

    Cons

    Several members in upper administration are viewed as very political with big egos who are only out for how much power their departments will have over other departments. Very high staff turnover at the university.
