SENIOR HR SUPPORT SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – February 16, 2017
A typical day at work would be about being able to rely on your fellow co-workers and higher ups to show up consistently and do their job. I in turn would do the same thing - so in essence, reliability and consistency.
I would learn about other people during the day and on a more pragmatic level, learn about how to do things more efficiently.
Management would lead by example, meaning walk their talk and not micro manage.
The workplace culture would be respectful of peoples time and opinions and focus more on the quality of work done and not try to cook cutter everyone into being exactly the same. They would value and honor diversity, and in return people would be committed to working hard.
The hardest part of the job would be dealing with difficult clients but that would also allow me and others to grow and learn how to provide better customer service. Also if there is any lack of communication among the staff, that could prove to be challenging. I would hope that there would be weekly meetings where there would be an open forum to discuss things.
The most enjoyable part of the job would be forming a bond that is genuine and authentic with fellow co-workers and supervisors/managers. Learning from others, growing with others and really enjoying working there - the job would not just be a paycheck and or being stuck in a cubicle all day doing things that were repetitive and required no ingenuity.
I realize writing this that this is supposed to be about the University of Texas at Austin...while I believe SOME part of UT can be like the above, my previous jobmore... was not like this.
This review is about a job that I would ideally like to be a part of.less
Marketing Associate (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – February 16, 2017
did not go to school at UT Austin. I attended the University of Texas at El Paso. As a collegiate student athlete I learned the importance of working with others and being able to work with a sense of urgency amongst tons of other things.
The people who work here are so full of their egos that they can not see the student's needs. Bullying happens there all the time, and when it is reported, it is not addressed, and gets passed up the chain until you are so tired of making appointments that you give up.

Research Fellow (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – January 31, 2017
Good locations, but hard to get to work with private or public transport. The facilities are nice although they are spread over a too big area making communication between them hard. The job was nice and the people were helpful as long as no conflicts arose. Good activities and courses, but should include the faculty members more.
good salary and employment benefits
very bad management and bad support for problem solving
Greeting customers and money management skills, promoting sales, promotions and marketing, offered customers store deals, answered questions and concerns, followed store procedures and policies, answered calls, performed recovery and reformed closing skills.
Lead Software Engineer (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – January 17, 2017
If you take a public sector IT job at UT Austin, you should expect to be paid like a public sector IT worker. That said, the job has some excellent upsides, such as flexible and limited working hours. I've rarely had to work more than 40 hours per week, and when I do, I track it as comp time and take time off the next week. Benefits are decent, and the vacation policy is generous, including 12 weeks of paid parental leave per birth/adoption event.
The technical community is fantastic. In general, the developers and engineers are quite skilled at UT. The University would fall apart without them, and it's great to work with brilliant people.
Management obviously depends a lot on your particular manager, but most of the IT managers have been developers or engineers at the university themselves, so they understand the technology and culture.
Programming & Information Systems Faculty Asst (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – January 12, 2017
Great learning experience to develop the necessary skills to be able to succeed in the industry wich you are going for. Professors and staff were helpful in guiding and training each student to teach others and grow.
TIP Mentor (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – January 9, 2017
The University of Texas is a great place to work. Because of the nature of the campus, people seek to foster the best of each other. Everyone is willing to help anyone with any shortcomings with respect to work. Because of this, I found that employees work their best to help each other and better themselves.
