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.

Working for the University of Texas in Austin, at the Student Union accounting department, was a great experience!!! I really enjoyed the interaction with the students and organizations. I also enjoyed and learned about mentoring.
Great group of co-workers and managers. Allowed to put education first as an undergraduate research assistant and reactor operator trainee. Flexible with school and schedule related to post-graduation.
Maintenance Technician - Facilities Service's Dept (Former Employee) – Manitou Springs, CO – September 9, 2015
I work at UT for just under 5 years until the work load outsourcing company came in and disrupted the well managed ,upbeat , work process procedures that made this great institution a well oiled team innovated organization in the Facilities Maintenance Department most every one enjoyed working at the University of Texas until the outsourcing process came into play.
Operations Assistant, Via Hope (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – August 25, 2015
It was just due to my program, now non-profit , being acquired by UT. Not much else to say. I was not in the culture long enough. And, to be honest, it felt just more like I was employed by my program versus UT.
Group Fitness Instructor (Former Employee) – Gregory Gym – August 16, 2015
My typical day included teaching a one hour class motivating others and getting them to their highest fitness potentials. I learned how to effectively lead a group fitness class. Everything about this job was great!
The University of Texas at Austin is an amazing place to work and study. The university has seemingly unlimited resources to support the efforts of the faculty, staff and students. The greatest challenge is being there long enough to learn about all the resources. Many of the staff have been there for more than 20 years!
The University of Texas is a very demanding place to work, especially for the lack of compensation one gets. I have met a lot of nice people working here and the atmosphere is by far not the worst that I have been in. However, I think the amount of work that is asked of us and the amount that we get paid is very lopsided. Do not expect to get raises or bonuses here, because that is rare.
Assistant Grant Writer (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – August 3, 2015
Great place to work with overall supportive management. One could achieve a work-life balance at certain positions within the University's administration. Overall, I highly recommend working at UT Austin.
Administrative Associate of Finance (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – July 31, 2015
A typical work day is 8-5 Monday through Friday Learned many standard accounting/finance process for UT Management lacked sufficient awareness of staff development Coworkers were highly educated, skilled and engaging Hardest part was not having a clearly defined mission or vision for department Fun part of the job was working with motivated and driven staff and helping to support faculty in their work.
no job advancement, no room to grow, dept manager was always out leaving employees and coordinator to make management decisions, then manager would disagree with decisions that were made while she was out of the office. Dept manager was out so much then was on social media and employees could see where she was at when she wasn't on vacation. Poor management.
No job advancement, turn around is very high, working hours were never consistent, poor management
