Nice place for a PhD graduate research assistant
Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXMay 14, 2018
Relatively low living cost. Graduate student apartment is super cheap and in good condition. Rent is rising quickly though. Also, it takes 2+ years in the waitlist to get in. Even outside the school apartment, overall rent is ok to live on the GRA salary.
Excellent employee insurance benefits.
Terrible parking space for graduate students, unless you wait in the waitlist for a year or so,

A typical day at work was being in the office with other co-workers. There was a lot of collaborating done. The biggest draw back was management was very inconsistent.

giving developer more opportunities to make their own decision
Systems Analyst (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXMay 8, 2018
If a developer cannot make any decision and must follow what manager ask for, the developer will lost their interests soon. When a developer has a good idea, they really like to accomplish it.That is a good thing.

Senior Administrative Associate (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXApril 13, 2018
I first worked for a department that believed in training Kindergarten through 12th Grade educators prepare their students for higher learning. It was very interesting to learn all the wonderful ways that they accomplished this using math and science.
Next, I worked for a department that worked with community colleges all over the nation. Meeting different Community College President and Board Members of those college was very enlightening. Many of the ideas that came about such as finding out why students would quit and not go on to higher education, and how to help keep students in school was one of the main concerns.
These people were inspiring and truly believed and loved what they were doing. These are people that are everyone should be like.
Pros
Inspiring work
Cons
Funding ended
