    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Texas Engineering Extension Service part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to be around. Off on main holidays. Very team oriented.

    Cons

    Very old-school mentality. Nothing new gets implemented without push-back.

    Advice to Management

    There is some chance of advancement. I see people getting transferred horizontally, rather than vertically.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Texas Engineering Extension Service part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good for a student worker position and in the summer you can usually hit some over time hours which is pretty nice.

    Cons

    As a student worker you will be the most overworked under appreciated worker on the field. Expect to do things you don't know how to do and expect to be given a talking to when you screw it up.

    Advice to Management

    Give credit where credit is due.

    I worked at Texas Engineering Extension Service full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Low expectations, making money isn't essential, hard to get fired

    Cons

    Business decisions are not made based on sound practices
    Buddies come before business

    Advice to Management

    Act like professional business people
    Quit putting money into dead end programs and allowing incompetence

    Pros

    The institution being a state agency is eager to integrate new ideas and technologies to compete in the industry with both private and public institutions.

    Cons

    Difficult to market capabilities of the institution to private industry.

    Pros

    State benefits are good for families.

    Cons

    Politics, politics, politics. Subject to Texas A&M policies.

    Advice to Management

    Backbone & Spine are needed.
    Get rid of the buddy system of promotions and promote those that are qualified, or go out and get someone qualified. Years of Experience IS NOT EQUAL to QUALIFICATIONS

    "TEEX review"

    Pros

    This organization serves the citizens of Texas and makes a difference in people's lives. It truely takes education out to the public and local governments on important topics.

    Cons

    TEEX receives a small percentage of its funds from the tax based revenue. Therefore most of its cost to provide its mission essential services must be recovered, often over pricing its services compared to private firms.

    Advice to Management

    Use technology to offer services at a more affordable rate.

    Pros

    Overall, TEEX is a great place to work. Because it is part of the Texas A&M System, you experience all of the same benefits as working for Texas A&M. Employees receive generous time off and a best in class benefits package.

    Cons

    The culture and organization is suited best for older workers, although the organization has recently embarked on an initiative to create a multi-generational workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, TEEX is a great place to work. A greater emphasis should be placed on attracting and retaining younger workers whose energy and enthusiasm could add significantly to the culture of the organization.
