    I worked at University of Texas System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Top notch chemistry department. Last time I checked it was hovering around 10th in the nation. Great respectable name. Austin is a great place to live and work.

    Cons

    Not that many cons but obviously your are going to be working on a university salary so you better love the research you do and enjoy the other perks

    Implement some sort of bonus structure to reward and retain top performers.

    I worked at University of Texas System part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a great place to make new friends. Because all of the part time employees are students, it's an easy way to meet new people that you wouldn't otherwise.

    Cons

    At least at Gregory gym, the management is terrible. Those who are responsible for the student staff are very incompetent, despite their years of experience. Unintelligent decisions leave student workers baffled and often don't even slightly consider worker moral. Even though RecSports operates through the work of students it functions like a corporation who doesn't care at all about it's employees.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that your employees are students and that is what comes first in their lives. Yes this is a job, but it is a PART TIME on-campus job. Don't have unrealistic expectations about when employees are able to work or come in for meetings when this job isn't their highest priority. Actually consider the implications of your management actions before you perform them (i.e. don't yell at workers on shift, don't make it blatantly obvious that you pick favorites, try to actually consider student schedules and constraints).

    I have been working at University of Texas System part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There's quite a bit of flexibility in the GA position. Depending on who you're working for you don't necessarily have to work in office. Great way to get to know faculty/researchers. Perfect way to build your CV and gain research skills/experiences. If you want to stay in academia there's no better way to get plugged into future opportunities.

    Cons

    Environment can often feel contentious and competitive - this can depend on the department you base out of. Not much support for those wishing to go into a corporate environment post graduation. Opportunities for advancement are limited - mainly a position used as a jumping off point.

    Advice to Management

    Could improve on the mentorship of GA's. Encouragement and support are extremely important in building confidence to do high level research.

    Pros

    Not sure that this review can possibly capture what I really thought about my experience, since the title of this workplace is somewhat off.

    My particular experience wasn't so great because I didn't get along with my manager; personal issues.

    Advice to Management

    none really
