    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.

    I worked at University of North Texas full-time

    Pros

    I came here for a job after my old company went out of business in Oklahoma. I left friends and family, and all I wanted was a job and to want to belong.

    Cons

    I was bullied so bad by the administrators here that I went home and cried every night. I so glad to be gone.

    Advice to Management

    Bullying is not leadership.

    Pros

    There's not a lot here to be positive about - most of what's said here about the BSS and the university itself is true.

    Cons

    The environment at the BSS is extremely tumultuous. Management is continuously changing their priorities, which makes work life here very, very difficult. Upper staff continually take their frustrations out on the lower staff. The environment has gotten much worse over the last few years.

    Advice to Management

    Something must be done.

    Pros

    Zero...even Denton is a nasty little city. Unt and Denton absolutely stink.

    Cons

    The recruiter lied to me, my boss who runs the accounting at this stupid little mall they call an office - that's right....we work off campus at a mini-mall -lies to me daily, our "leadership" is a bunch of cut-throat damaged jerks who love to wield their power and who don't care who is collateral damage, and the people who work here live in terror for their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Why even bother leaving advice to a bunch of evil megalomaniacs who ABSOLUTELY LOVE lording their power?????.....
