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

    Pros

    Very forward thinking VP, Director, and team lead.

    Cons

    That's very hard to imagine at this point. But, there are some tunnels and steam pipes one has to walk into making it easier to get hurt if you don't watch your step.

    Advice to Management

    My director is only human. So, he can't be perfect. I imagine he could shine his shoes a little more. Although, it is an engineering field and having to walk around construction is necessary. So, that maybe the best that can be done.

    I have been working at University of Texas at Austin full-time

    Pros

    UT Austin health benefits are great

    Cons

    The "leadership" is extremely dysfunctional, and has done nothing to address the high turnover rate of the last year. Terrible office culture of pointing fingers and blaming others, rather than taking responsibility or actually trying to fix problems. Leadership is extremely discouraging towards employees trying to make lateral or upward moves within the department.
