    I have been working at Texas Transportation Institute part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people are really nice for the most part, especially your coworkers. You'll get to know some other people in the building that are responsible for ordering things through NIS (networking and information systems). there is often downtime for the student techs which lets me work on homework, which is really important to me. The pay is pretty good for a student worker, especially compared to most other on campus jobs.

    Cons

    Not too much here, for a student working on rellis campus can be far but depending on where you live it isn't too bad

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Texas Transportation Institute full-time

    Pros

    Rewarding projects, thoughtful colleagues, nice work space.

    Cons

    The particular manager I had was difficult to work with. His perception of his team was not based on objective performance assessments. I was graded quite harshly during my annual performance review. When I had asked him to provide an example of something negative he had listed in the review, he could not do so (resulting in him reluctantly omitting it from the performance review prior to it being submitted). I later learned that at least two previous team members left due to issues they had while working under him.
