    I have been working at University of North Texas full-time

    Pros

    Energetic students, great benefits, pretty campus.

    Cons

    Top-down management, endless surveys that never lead anywhere, issues with treating women with respect. The culture promotes a real separation between the few who have power and those who do the majority of the work and have little power. Oh, and no where to park although we pay a premium for parking!

    Advice to Management

    Cut out many mid-level administrators who don't add to the mission and drain the resources. Respect women more.

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

    Pros

    Higher pay since the office is in downtown Dallas. Inexpensive parking because of supplement to parking fees for covered garage adjacent to office. Tuition benefits to family. Benefits are very good because UNT is a state institution.

    Cons

    The location is a nightmare to commute to from just about anywhere other than Oak Cliff or downtown Dallas. The Chancellor is referred to only as "The Chancellor." That seems to be too formal for a higher education office. My floor is not friendly. There is no interfacing with other employees. In a year, I don't know most people. Training is non-existent because of this office's location. Training is offered at campus locations, but this is not a campus location. The rare time training is scheduled, it's canceled because of lack of participation.

    Advice to Management

    Make it a fun work environment. This is higher education. Can't we have a fun work environment while molding great minds? There is no way to share ideas or ask questions of peers. That, coupled with non-existent training, makes for challenges.

    Professional and kind coworkers

    Advice to Management

    The key to best student education is to recognize and honor good teachers and do everything possible to keep them. You can't try to employ people with little or no experience for little money and expect them to be dazzling enough to entice students.
