    I have been working at Texas State Technical College full-time

    Pros

    Helping students and that is about it.

    Cons

    All of the administration doesn't give a flip about anybody except their own wallet. They demand demand and demand. HR is a joke, all they do is fire people and write up good workers. Chancellor needs to go, and the six people under him. They hired fired people from Baylor as their top people???? Really?

    Advice to Management

    Advice would be to the board, get rid of everyone on top!!!!!! NOW!!!!!

    I have been working at Texas State Technical College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Can't really think of much except we received a 7% salary market differential increase. They could of rounded it up to 10%...even with the 7% increase the salary isn't enough to live comfortably.

    Cons

    No maternity leave. You have to use your sick days or vacation days if an emergency comes up that passes the 3 paid emergency leave days. At the FB campus your boss more than likely resides at another campus 3-6 hrs away.

    Advice to Management

    Salary at a minimum needs to be 40K for staff/faculty. You have all these higher ups who have 6 figure salaries enjoying ranches & family vacations while the people who do all the dirty work and are the front linesman are understaffed and underpaid. Why not compensate individuals for what they are asking for... How about actually hire people who are educated in effective organizational leadership and not grandfather in employees based off of favoritism or a buddy system. Also, put our salaries on Texas Tribune. What is there to hide? We are government employees yet our salaries aren't on Texas Tribune...

    Students and some of the benefits

    Pros

    The college, even with ten campuses, feels a lot like a family. Fort Bend is growing, which is exciting.

    Cons

    Our dependency on state money means that when Texas tightens its belt, so must we.

    Advice to Management

    Grow the Foundation. Keep working on communication.

    I have been working at Texas State Technical College full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The faculty and staff are great.

    Cons

    The administration is not in touch with the realities of the faculty and staff. Not counting compensation adjustments, in the last 15 or so years, the faculty has only had actual pay raises of about 9-10%. In the last four years administration has had average compensation increase of 16-19%. Administration makes decisions that effect faculty and the classrooms without consulting faculty. Communication from faculty up has always been adequate, but from admin down is practically non-existent, other than directives.

    Advice to Management

    Make no decision that concern faculty and classrooms without faculty input. No one gets a raise, unless everyone gets a raise. Let faculty decide what is needed to teach, and how to run the Instructional side of the business. They are the ones doing it!
