Director (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXSeptember 24, 2017
The day is set at your own pace, but there is a lot of responsibility to make sure that you get everything done by arbitrary deadlines. Be able to prioritize, multitask, and say "no" sometimes, and you'll survive.

University of Texas Austin provides great environment for researchers. The resources aren't necessarily abundant compared to top private schools, but it's surely among the tops in public schools. Austin is a wonderful city featuring lots of fun events for everyone to discover and enjoy.

UT Great Place To Work
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXSeptember 22, 2017
Great Atmosphere. Great Staff. Great System. What I was most impressed with is how knowledgeable and attentive they are. Its a BIG campus with THOUSANDS of employees but they shrink it down and simplify so masterfully. They will not lose you. You have help and support every step of the way.

TEMPORARY POSITIONS (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXSeptember 22, 2017
Hired through the University of Texas UTemps, as an admin assisting on several long-term assignments, I found the University setting to be very enjoyable and balanced. The work assignments were non-stressful, in comparison to the typical corporate work environment, and coworkers were friendly and team-oriented.
Pros
Nice campus and there are many cultural activities and sporting events to attend.
Cons
Quite a walk, from the parking provided for temps, to the campus. The university buses run regularly, but its take a little longer to get from the parking lot to your respective building.

Salary does not keep up with the cost of living
Asbestos Program Manager (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXSeptember 17, 2017
You may or may not receive a 2% pay increase annually. Each department is different. There is little opportunity for advancement within a department. Moving from one department to another is the only way to obtain a new position and increase your salary.
