Suggestions for improvement

  • I think more emphasis on human resources with bonuses, more perks and holiday pay and perks would be something that I would focus on for retention of employees in the company.

What I like about the company

There is ample opportunity to move ahead in the job. Employee benefits are competitive and are not burdensome on the purse. The work environment is safe with mandatory annual refresher courses for employees to keep updated on latest in technology.

What I dislike about the company

I cannot think of anything that is lacking. However, more could be done in terms of bonuses or annual holiday compensation which sadly is lacking.

What I like about the company

I was able to advance and develop my career. Peers and mentors helped me advance my professional knowledge and personal skills.

  • Why is everyone here if they are so miserable? Why pinch pennies on office supplies? I think everything is so tight and cheap that everyone is just on edge all of the time. Loosen up, remember why we're here! We serve the students and community!

What I like about the company

I am proud to work for a Hispanic-serving institution. I wish I got to experience with joy of serving the students with my coworkers more, but they aren't very interested in student success. I was really excited to get this job but my enthusiasm is being slowly crushed.

What I dislike about the company

I think everyone needs a raise and the staff events needs to be fun and not a chore. UTSA has a staff morale problem and little things - offering a free class, a little more money in the bank, not having to pay out of pocket for parking - would go a long way to making me feel valued.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think some of the best improvements could be paid parental leave for paternal and maternal sides. I think an upwards review of management from people in lower positions is crucial to make our management better. We need more efficient processes for getting large projects done. Our approval process within marketing and communications is insufficient.

What I like about the company

They trust me to make big decisions in my area of expertise. They allow me to step out of mine and also their comfort zone to complete projects in a creative and effective way.

What I dislike about the company

The diversity in the workplace is great. However, I do notice a high amount of sexism especially towards women in lower positions. For example, men are provided with the newest technology and equipment monthly to do their job and I have been fighting, as a woman, just to get a new computer since mine is outdated and I need it throughout my entire day to do my job.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The food options are too expensive (primarily for students) but for staff/faculty as well.

What I like about the company

I work in a very supportive area. Leadership generally allows room for growth and innovation. Of course, each area has different opportunities (contingent on leadership and perspective), but overall there is much room for growth.

What I dislike about the company

They don’t have a dependent tuition reimbursement program. I wish (being it is a higher education institution) they provided tuition reimbursement for dependents.
