Research Assistant, College Station, T X (Current Employee) – College Station, TX – March 21, 2017
The professor I am working with is very solid and motivated. She gives me a lot of help in the project we are doing now. And all of the members in our lab can work as a very good team, even we come from different countries, different departments.
Information Technology Consultant (Current Employee) – College Station, TX – March 13, 2017
I work at the vet school for TAMU. The pay is quite low compared to the commercial world. It is a state job so it's expected to be low, but it's lower than what it should be. The typical days are great. You'll work with great people for the most part but management at the Vet School is horrible.
Front Desk Student Worker (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – March 12, 2017
It was a great place to work at as a student. Very interactive with the staff, and other students. It wasn't a very difficult job. Mainly answering calls and assisting with main staff duties. Great place to work at, but not many options for growth or promotions

This University is growing and one of the fastest growing in the state of Texas. It is great to be a part of history here. The hardest part of the job is wearing multiple hats and serving in many different capacities.

UCARE Director (Current Employee) – Killeen, TX – February 18, 2017
This is an awesome place to work. We founded the "Batcave" in a small back office and today it is now a university level dept. I absolutely love my Grad Assistants and the work we do. The professors who helped create UCARE have been excellent mentors! Each and every one of the 25+ students that have worked within UCARE's walls have gone on to be fantastic and awesome "adults." The culture of the Batcave and its Minions is one of flexibility, collaboration, two-way mentoring, and fun. We all have learned how to handle multiple projects in different phases while under pressure with expert professionalism. The hardest part of this job is losing the grad assistants. when they graduate because we have developed such a unique work relationship. The easiest part of UCARE is doing the work. Our team is just awesome and I'm happy and proud of each and every one of the Minions!
Flex hours, variety of projects, awesome engagement with the community
Budget is not big enough to really support all the projects we wish to undertake with the community
Sr. Program Manager (Current Employee) – College Station, TX – February 16, 2017
I transferred to the TAMHSC from main campus. I've been there more than 5 years. A typical day is just large volumes of work for a couple of us in the department and very little work for the others. Our department head is hardly in the office and gives each of us about 5-10 minutes of face time a week. Since she's mostly gone, she relies on a couple of co-workers to fill her in--conversations that take place after hours and the content of those discussions never include the rest of the staff. The hardest part is the insecurity of what and how information gets back to the boss who is not equal in her treatment of us--she pays for my co-worker's son's recreational activities (~$200 a month), her college tuition ($27,000 a year), gives her time off during the work day to study, and takes her on conference trips even though the employee has nothing to do with the conference. The best part of this job is being able to do challenging work that others can't do--so I feel valuable. But I worry every day my contributions won't matter. A few months ago, the co-worker participated in gossip where one of the employees was suddenly "not needed."
People have Aggie spirit even during a losing season.
