I have worked in the President's Office, and just recently moved to the accounting dept. to help this dept since they are working with a very skeleton crew. Working at the university is a good place, and the people are fantastic, but the salary is the amount that you could make working at a fast food place. It's ridiculous
A top-notch research university with renowned professors and a great place to work as a Graduate student. I am involved in research as well and will definitely suggest this university for the well known advisors and well equipped laboratories.

The job is not hard, however, it is mundane and repetitive. The employees and employers are all very nice and understanding. The best part of the job will be the friends I made there. I taught me much about time management and self-character because of the difficulty with balancing work and school.

Adjunct Instructor of Police Science (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – August 18, 2018
Teaching in the police academy and the academic programs have their own intrinsic rewards. One problem that can manifest is that the chain-of-command for the police programs may reach to those outside of the criminal justice arena. In general, there appears to be an innate distrust among those in authoritative positions, especially law enforcement. This distrust in the hands of decision makers outside the criminal justice arena can create an unhealthy and unsettling relationship.
