Research Engineering Technician (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – May 19, 2015
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.
Highly intelligent and personable staff, workplace culture the best I've ever seen, mentally engaging work and overall atmosphere.
No employee benefits unless an appointed staff member (PHD, etc.) Limited advancement opportunity.
A typical day at work would be hard to explain. I wore many hats during an eight hour shift, The daily duties would rotate based on any given day of the monthly cycle. The hardest part if the job was being able to see all the projects in a completed state.
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.
The work environment provided employees with a sense of security and unity, allowing for an overall positive, optimistic atmosphere at the university

Researcher (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – May 2, 2016
Working as a researcher at UT Austin is fantastic in terms of other committments, but the structure of payment is not well explained, and you pay severely in terms of benefits when you take on the position without much information on how it affects your insurance.
Good amounts of free time
Confusing, financially inferior to common alternatives
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.
Separation Research Program Technician Assistant (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – May 15, 2016
I had this job when I was in UT-Austin. I was guided by two professional technicians. They are really up in their game and extremely proficient in what they are doing. Also, I am truly thankful for the kind team leader for helping me and recommending me to numerous universities.
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.
I worked in the business office in the College of Pharmacy. I helped with data entry, prepared payment vouchers, paid monthly and yearly bills, purchased items for laboratories and departments in the College of Pharmacy.

This is a really great opportunity for those that think they might be interested in going to graduate school but might be unsure. I was able to work alongside many passionate people and it was a great experience.
