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

    Pros

    Generally great coworkers. Downtown location is fantastic. Departmental directors for the most part are very good at what they do.

    Cons

    Few opportunities for advancement. Vulnerable to the state's budget. Inflexible attitude towards new technology. Lack of mentorship culture, instead focuses on leader development classes and the like.

    Advice to Management

    Simple things like outdoor picnics to improve morale go a LONG way.

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

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, great campus resources such as on campus activity center and dining options, growing campus, excellent benefits starting on hire date, lots of vacation and sick leave

    Cons

    Some departments are very disorganized and dysfunctional. While the campus is growing steadily, staff hiring has not kept up with the growth, neither have operating budgets for many departments.

    Advice to Management

    We need to work a lot harder to foster communication and cooperation between departments and areas. The constant in fighting and scrambling for resources seriously hurts productivity and promotes employee burnout.

    research in some labs are great but done mostly by phd assistants, leaving students getting exposure to learning and focusing on research techniques rather than innovation
