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

    Pros

    The staff are really nice. Most have been working for UTA for a long time.

    Cons

    Employees are VERY underpaid. Workload is pretty heavy and gets worse as more and more students enroll. Little opportunity for raise unless you change positions. Sometimes the atmosphere feels more like a community college than a university.

    I worked at University of Texas at Arlington part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Research programs in my department were great and for the most part well funded. However working part time, you will find yourself being asked to do much more than your time allows as a graduate student because they try to save money by not hiring as many people as they should.

    Our department's industry networking is very poor.
