Work Study (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – January 26, 2016
I love working here. The people are always so friendly, welcoming, and accommodating. I have greatly increased my interpersonal skills and ability to multitask. Management varies from department to department, with my department having a centralized managerial system.
Research Assistant - seems appropriate. (Former Employee) – Austin, TX - Love Austin! – January 18, 2016
1) A typical day at work consisted primarily of training new instrument users on the SEM and EDS. 2) I learned many new applications of the SEM to solve a wide variety of research problems. 3) Management didn't do anything to support my efforts or reward my accomplishments. They were mostly absent from the scene. 4) I had no co-workers as such, but the users were largely a bright and well mannered group. 5) The hardest part of the job was dealing with the occasional inflated ego. 6) The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing a user gain valuable insight into their research with the instrumentation.
Never a boring job! Always something new.
Only part-time (19 hours per week) therefore no benefits.

UT Austin is a great place to learn, and you can learn almost anything that you like. It is great that you can register for most of the courses in other departments and enjoy the positive atmosphere of the university. Here, you will have access to several resources for your work and your joy, so it is up to you on how to use them.
What starts here does change the world and your life...
Senior Program Coordinator (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – January 14, 2016
One of the largest employers in Austin and rewarding careers. My position at UT Austin was one of the most enjoyable times of my life. The diverse culture, energetic campus and eager students make it easy to come to work. During my time, growth internally and between departments seemed strong and rewarding for many. I would highly recommend being part of the university team if you are lucky to be selected.
Productive and enjoy working in an international environment

Working at The University of Texas at Austin is great specially for a project involving multidisciplinary research activities.

Very calm environment, worked around school schedule

The most part I enjoy about my job is that I work Mon-Fri and off on the holidays. The thing that I least enjoy is that we get paid once month and its hard to advance to upper management. The most challenging part of my job is having a recipe system that is not very accurate.
free lunch and parking
health benefits and paid vacation mon-fri if possible
Great Place to work with supportive management. Being a Graduate Teaching assistant I get to work with Director and Assistant Director of the Flagship program. I tend to understand their requirement and give them best possible solution for making the website more fruitful for students and others. The job require me to wok independently and its a great learning experience along with a Graduate student.
It is a great university, according to the field of study. As any other place, it has its cons and pros. My colleagues in the program were helpful into explaining me the system of how to navigate grad school. The office management of the department is quick in problem-solution and communication excels. The most enjoyable part of grad school is interaction with students. Despite the fact I am here to help them be more critical and understand course material, I have also learned from them.
Research assistant (Former Employee) – Department of Chemistry – October 25, 2015
I worked as a student researcher. I liked my work, met great people, and enjoyed the top notch facilities that come with an established university. UT is constantly doing renovations and renewing equipment. The instruments were always top notch.
I worked over in the College of Natural Sciences. I did enjoy my co-workers and the humane attitude CNS took to taking time off and having a flexible schedule. I also had a great deal of autonomy in my position.
Poor management. Poor communication from management. Current dean was brought in to bring budget back in to shape after years of over-spending. There has been a mandate for hiring and pay freezes although people were still being hired and I heard of a few raises being handed out (I received one), but there are just as many people being laid off. Management has stated people should just enjoy working at UT and not worry about getting raises. I would strongly take this into account when weighing a CNS job. I hear other colleges at UT are managed better.
However, there are larger problems of mysterious accounting at UT as the public narration is the university is just making ends meet, but behind the scenes UT is making lots of money hand over fist. It seems UT is wanting to funnel this money into other areas other than rewarding their work force.
Co-workers, flexible work schedule, autonomy
No raises, poor management communication which led to poor morale
