    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.

    Pros

    Excellent chance to be involved in national level curriculum development and training facilitation.

    Cons

    Some instances of supervisory micro management. Better communication of expectations by management required upfront.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees to get the job done.

    Pros

    Some pros for working here is that it is a very relaxed atmosphere. A lot of freedom and the people you work with are fun to be around.

    Cons

    Some cons for TEEX are being made promises about different things such as projects, tasks, raises, promotions, etc. And they are not followed through with. Senior Management doesn't seem to care a lot about the entry level, beginner type positions; recognizes and applauds upper management only.

    Advice to Management

    Try to incorporate everyone at all levels into recognition and acknowledgement. Make everyone feel like they are included and are essential to the company.

    Pros

    Upper management is great. time off. Management lets you do your job and stays out of the way.

    Cons

    Pay could be better, but i guess that anywhere. Middle Management. Hard to advance.

    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.

    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
