The work environment particularly at the Kingsville branch of this university system is quite hostile. This is because the new executive leadership in Human Resources isn't very skilled or approachable. There have been a number of situations which I've sought guidance and assistance from. Yet the Human Resources leadership still hasn't done anything to help or assist me. Their ineptitude and incompetence each and every day with some of the most basic Human Resources issues and questions continues to be beyond baffling.

One of the sites: Kingsville Texas needs new H.R. leadership. Right now the H.R. leadership for this particular site isn't very good. All the current H.R. leadership at Texas A&M Kingsville is capable of is reciting policies and procedures like it's Bible verse. However they don't know how to be creative or think outside the box in order to actually make Texas A&M a truly good place to work. So that's my best advice: replace H.R. leadership at this site with true H.R. professionals who are actually competent and know what H.R. functions are.

Honestly, it's not as though I can really comment or generalize on the Texas A&M University system as a whole since I only work at one of their sites. However, I can definitely provide some insight and feedback about the Kingsville, TX arm of the university in particular. Up until recently, this was a great place to work. The new executive leadership for H.R. at Texas A&M Kingsville however, leaves a lot to be desired! I've had the sad misfortune of having to deal with executive H.R. a number of times at Kingsville, only to be blown off entirely and have my concerns completely dismissed and ignored. In my opinion, I don't really feel like the new executive leadership in H.R. here at this particular site has very good social or relational skills. They seem very distant, detached, and disinterested from their workforce. All they really seem competent or capable of is being able to recite company policies and procedures in a very monotone, robotic fashion while offering little to no creative insight as to how things might actually be able to improve. Also, executive H.R. leadership here, in my opinion, isn't always very fair or neutral, nor are they helpful or competent with some of the most basic and fundamental H.R. questions and issues which they should be. There have been several occasions during my employment at this university when I've needed clarification or guidance from H.R., only to have my concerns dismissed, e-mails ignored, or feel as though my opinions and questions weren't important or even worthy of H.R.'s time. Although I'd certainly love to stay at Texas A&M University since it's a good employer overall, the one reason why I might decide to leave is because of the horrible H.R. executive leadership, particularly in this area/city of the university system. Hopefully, that will change in the future however.
