The University of Texas at Austin is a huge university, so not everyone's experiences will be the same.
Saying that, the university really cares about the people within the university. I was fortunate enough to be part of a prestigious college and a caring department. My supervisor made working there enjoyable.

Overall a great learning experience with enjoyable, prestigious, and intelligent staff that know their stuff. However, the layers of bureaucracy you'd imagine in a public institution definitely exists, which 1)makes things move quite slowly, & 2)do not offer much advancement unless you want to stay in academia forever due to few openings.
