Working IT at UT was a great job as a senior in ECE. Sometimes the IT departments are splinter-cells from the core ITS. Some of the managers are less than competent.

M.D. Anderson Cancer Center (Current Employee), HoustonMay 31, 2015
Pros: Work doesn't follow you home
Cons: Annyoing coworkers, having to work weekends
I work in Laboratory Medicine and although there isn't a lot of room for advancement, you have to try very hard to get fired. Management has gotten far better in the past year and I suspect it will only get better. Don't get too attached to the idea of moving up unless your're willing to leave the department.

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.
Research Lab Technician (Former Employee), Austin, TXMay 5, 2015
Job often required long hours and the pay was low with no benefits. Grad students often piled on projects with little thought to deadlines.
