  5. 3.0
    Former Employee, more than 8 years

    Great overall job for a student. Amazing co-workers in my department. Lack of leadership.

    May 20, 2022 - Computer Operator I in Denton, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Flexible schedule; my manager worked with me while I was enrolled in classes. Great medical benefits and tuition discount. I'm blessed to have great co-workers and many amazing students I was able to collaborate with on projects. Great situation for a student, as a transitional job, or an individual ready to focus on retirement benefits.

    Cons

    Performance reviews are a formality to meet compliance. They hold no weight in terms of any compensation adjustment despite major responsibility increases. Leadership became detached and unempathetic in regards to how the pandemic affected the rest of the IT system workforce. No response or discussions on the plan of action when multiple employees including students tested positive for Covid-19. I found this out on return from my quarantine period post-negative test result. I recommended our department maintain our prior hybrid work schedule to reduce contact and meet better social distancing requirements a few months before this incident. Our department was required to remain remote and the rest of the workforce was allowed to work remotely. Leadership is willing to sacrifice employee safety and minimize employee concerns. A questionable selection process for open internal positions. (I believe an ideal candidate should be measured on value, skill development, and interest in the role performed during the interview process and not pre-selected by the department manager with reasons being a "close friend on hard times.")

    The professors are very kind and are very passionate to support your academic pursuit.

    Unappreciated Staff

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great people, fun students, busy positive atmosphere

    Cons

    The university does not care about it's staff. During Covid they laid off 1/3 of staff members and when the lines opened up there was a focus on hiring more faculty. Faculty that would no longer have staff to support them. To say nothing about the fact that most staff had to shoulder the responsibilities of 1-2 former staff members who were fired without any pay increases although the university continued to set record breaking profits.
