    I have been working at University of North Texas full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    State benefits
    Ample time off
    Discount to fulfill undergraduate/graduate degrees
    Opportunities to find employment among various departments/divisions
    Rewarding and motivating to work with students and faculty
    Ample university provided training opportunities
    Family oriented

    Cons

    Understaffed departments/divisions lead to overwhelming workloads
    Little room for growth within departments/divisions
    Often employees take on full workloads from employees that pass away/resign/terminated and are not augmented/compensated for the additional workload even when it becomes permanent as "other duties as assigned"
    Few opportunities to reclassify a position despite overwhelming workload
    Merit raises are few and far between
    No annual salary adjustments including cost of living wage increases
    Hiring freezes
    Salary adjustment freezes
    Reclassification of positions without salary adjustment

    Advice to Management

    Provide cost of living wage adjustments every few years
    Merit raises should occur every year for eligible employees
    Invest in your employees and they will invest in you

    I worked at University of North Texas part-time

    Pros

    It's great working with students one-on-one, in a structured environment where their coaches and the tutoring coordinator all are on your team to keep the student engaged and motivated. The athletes don't get to compete if they don't keep their grades up, so this works in the favor of the tutor.

    Cons

    Pay was low, and I foolishly bought my own text books which meant I made virtually no money (thank goodness I cared about the work). In order to give my best to the students, I would study all the same material and be as prepared as I thought they should have been, in order to set the example. This means that I put many hours of prep work in, which I was not at all compensated for.

    Advice to Management

    If you want high performing employees, take into account how they can get copies of the subject materials and consider some form of compensation to motivate them to study the material. Otherwise, as most other tutors did, they are only motivated to show up with their existing knowledge (which easy may not be adequate for preparing a student for an example, essay, or other project) with only the tutor's existing memory of the information.
