Undergraduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Richardson, TX – February 2, 2018
Not much to say, just like working for any other government job. As an undergraduate research assistant you are expected to do the busy work of course, you don't have the training or knowledge to do much else.
I am a TA for a few courses here and it really helps me to help people as well as improve my concepts for myself as I am a student. It also pays me as a student so I think of this as a best job I can do as a a student.
UT Dallas is a great place to work. You're working for an educational institution that are churning out amazing talent - and you get to be part of that process (no matter what are of the university your job lies). The people are wonderful to work with which makes coming to work worthwhile. My favorite part of job was to help foster important relationships that the students will find valuable during their time as a student of UT Dallas.
My job responsibilities entail giving coding lessons in an elementary school once a week for an hour for each school. So in all, there is great balance between my job time and study time which I feel is important being a graduate student.
Senior Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Richardson, TX – November 8, 2017
The best part of working at UTD was the wonderful individuals there. The directors and coworkers were both understanding and educative. There was open communication between all members of the staff which facilitated all work duties. Work hours were flexible and any inconvenience was taken into consideration. The work itself was not difficult and interesting. Knowing that the work was part of helping families in the community also made the job more enjoyable.
Organization needs leadership who understands management of people and finances to get the organization where it needs to be. Poor management, lack of structure. Poor money management and decision making.
Get to work with students, parents, teachers, walk-in guests, different cultures, high-profile guests, CEO's, CFO's. Work is rewarding, keeps me busy. Pay is good and benefits are awesome. TRS retirement is a plus.
I have a close connection to the university, getting my undergraduate and graduate degrees there. It's a laid back environment, but energetic. I don't believe it has very many strong, competent leaders. Advancement is also not an easy thing to navigate.

Assistant Director - Gifts Process Operations (Current Employee) – Richardson, TX – June 21, 2017
I have and continue to love my time at UTDallas. I call it a happy challenge because from the first I continue to find a challenge and am given the room to complete it. Benefits are a good perk and offer a gratifying reward. Management is observant and not intrusive. Styles vary but not overbearing.
positive work space, usually relaxed work environs
