Excellent workplace if you love to learn.
Research Engineering Technician (Former Employee), Austin, TXMay 19, 2015
Pros: Highly intelligent and personable staff, workplace culture the best I've ever seen, mentally engaging work and overall atmosphere.
Cons: No employee benefits unless an appointed staff member (PHD, etc.) Limited advancement opportunity.
The Separation Research Program at the J.J. Pickle Research Campus was a fantastic place to work. A very small group of highly intelligent and resourceful people, the SRP team produces work and research data of the highest caliber.

Bad Experience with Lab Manager
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), Austin, TXMay 6, 2015
Pros: Free Food
Cons: Lack of evaluation or means to improve in work performance
I was a Teachers' Assistant for the Introductory Biology Labs. The labs were well organized and I felt they were beneficial to students. After working as a Teachers' Assistant for the labs for some time, the Manager of the Labs took me aside and told me that I was, "one of the weakest Teachers' Assistant employed there." I understand this is a legitimate evaluation, however the manager did not tell me in what areas I was weak, or how I could improve in these areas (in retrospect, I should have asked.) It seems like, since The University of Texas is an educational institution, there should be a decent amount of room to identify areas of weakness in teaching and allow the Teachers' Assistant to improve in these areas, however this culture was not present for Teachers' Assistants in the Introductory Biology Labs.

Long hours and low pay.

Enjoyable hands on work experience with a friendly staff
Facilities Services Project Worker (Former Employee), Austin, TXApril 27, 2015
A typical day at work involved working on various maintenance and upkeep projects around the library, such as painting study rooms or moving new furniture in and out of study areas. Co-workers and management were helpful and friendly. The hardest part of the job was lifting heavy furniture objects and moving large objects through doorways.

Productive and Fun Workplace. No Vacations allowed ever.
Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee), Austin, TXApril 22, 2015
Pros: Embraced the power of rapid prototyping and 3D printing.
Cons: No breaks, and would rather spend 5k on something we didn't need than 300 on a sensor we did.
Worked there for about a year and was let go after leaving for a 1 week vacation. Claimed to be "Work Study", yet was purely Work. That said, it was still an educational and fun working environment due to awesome coworkers. Leadership needed to get themselves ironed out though. Heard conflicting directions from management and my boss multiple times.

assistant building attendant leader (Current Employee), Austin, TXApril 6, 2015
I have to lead 2 persons at the normal days and this number raise to 8 when I replace my crew leader so I do my job plus his job and I have to dissolve any problem we can figure during our shift and sometimes we have to do the same job with missing of one or two person from the team so I suppose to have always plan B, but finally I enjoy working as a part of the team specially when we achieve our goals.

a serious workplace
Graduate Researcher (Former Employee), Austin, TXMarch 18, 2015
Cons: the salary is not the ideal
At least in the places and jobs where I worked there was motivation and a healthy exchange of ideas between instructors, professors and the Teacher and researcher assistants. I felt stimulated to learn and to develop innovative ways to approach the classroom and received positive feedback from the students.
