    I have been working at University of Texas at Austin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits (free medical for employees, for dependents and/or spouses to be covered there is a charge), wonderful colleagues, intellectual stimulation, nice work space, side benefits like seeing cool speakers (usually free), museums (also free), and sporting events (not free)

    Cons

    Low pay for staff and lack of defined career tracks, definitely third class behind faculty and students. Must pay 400+ a year to park at my job. Lack of flexibility for example working remotely not allowed for many positions.

    Advice to Management

    Pay staff what they are worth or you will lose the best talent, recognize staff as vital contributors to the organization not the third class. Treat staff as the well trained and well educated professionals most are.
