    Pros

    Had the right professor and it made the position educational and productive. McCombs has a great program for graduate students

    Cons

    Job is very dependent on the professor and what classes they are teaching during your time. Unfortunately there is no way of checking out ahead of time

    I have been working at University of Texas at Austin full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Not many. Holidays. Students. Trees.

    Cons

    The university does not value its employees, the top make a ridiculous amount of money and the bottom struggle to get by. People are considered expendable and treated that way.

    Advice to Management

    Austin is a very expensive place to live. Austin is becoming like any other big city, clogging traffic, dirty and high crime. If the university intends to attract and keep good people they should pay them and treat them well. Not just the top tier.

    I worked at University of Texas at Austin full-time

    Pros

    Depending on the department, most people are motivated and helpful to work with, plus there are many non-monetary benefits.

    Most departments would benefit from cross-training among some of the entry and mid-level staff.
