    I have been working at Texas A&M University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Excellent students and staff. Honestly trying to be one of the most service minded and academically excellent US universities. Great alumni. Great students.

    Cons

    The issues facing Texas AM face all US colleges. Declining government funding and rapidly changing society make teaching and administration a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so set on outsourcing and privatizing key university functions. Continue emphasis on providing an great environment for a diverse student undergraduate an graduate student body.

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

    Pros

    Given that the position of Research Assistant is same all over the country with salaries depending on the region and tier level of schools, the compensation and other benefits are at par with any other good school, depending on the low cost of living at College Station.

    Cons

    None as such. It is fairly small college town, so don't expect to have a big-city vibe with the place.
