University of Houston Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The University of Houston (UH) is a public research university in Houston, Texas, and the main institution of the University of Houston System. Founded in 1927, UH is the third-largest university in Texas with over 46,000 students. Its campus spans 667 acres in southeast Houston and was known as the University of Houston–University Park from 1983 to 1991. The university is classified among "R1: Doctoral Universities – Very high research activity".
Jos L, a University of Houston Psychology student shared his opinion on "Grade Reports" in 2020:
"Terrible university that has no concern for the welfare of people. Reported a student who was a prolific bully and they did absolutely nothing, instead they treated the bully like they were the victim. When we live in a climate where people take their lives because of bullying this is disgusting behavior and they should be ashamed of themselves."
Shipping & Receiving / Mailroom Clerk (Former Employee) says"i would not work for this company again if my life depended on it!1!!!!! They reward bad Management, since they all in a cliq or group. They do BELIEVE IN LYING AND PROTECTING EACH OTHER Cons: micro management"
Customer Service Representative II (Former Employee) says"There was no room for advancement. We had yearly retreats to enhance or implement new procedures that were never implemented. Employee theft was overlooked by management and I mean lots of theft. Favoritism shown to certain employees. Job titles changed to benefit certain employees. University of Houston wastes a lot of money. The students were the best part of the job. Cons: Poor department leadership. Employee theft from the company"
Food Server/Cashier (Former Employee) says"Manager dont Care about the employees no opportunity to move up in the company. Managers were always leaving the company. Long hours and less pay. Only work during school semesters. Cons: No long hours low pay. No opportunity to move up in the company. A lot of drama"
Academic Advisor (Current Employee) says"Staff is not cared about. UH brings in so much money and for what? Staff to be paid so little when the provost is earning two incomes, and you only see her to take a photo and leave. NEVER have I seen her actually out and about engaging with students or departments. Cons: stakeholders in charge, pay, morale, parking"
Shelving Assistant (Current Employee) says"Information and Access Services as a department is quite nice but the shelving management is very detached. Student workers are not compensated fairly by the university for our labor."
Presidential Fellow (Former Employee) says"I feel, it has a poor management and corrupted environment. Its not healthy to work there. I suggest law enforcement authority to investigate issues here and maintain a peaceful & healthy workplace."
Worker (Current Employee) says"You would think that a university would praise you getting a graduate degree. They do not. You will never advance and you will never grow in this company."
SHOP SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) says"Only good if you are a student willing to donate a large amount of time to the college and your fellow students......................................."
Research Assistant (Former Employee) says"Stressful environment to be in. Some people were not friendly at all. Pay for the work I did was minimal. Did not enjoy the long commute to get there at UH. Cons: None"

Secretary (Former Employee) says"Most work I've ever done for the least pay. You pretty much do everything there. Cons: everything"
Senior Program Manager (Current Employee) says"Job posting was a bait and switch for a job that I wasn't able to do. I was demoted and moved to new responsibilities, which were OK. Horrible work/life balance, extremely long days, and weekends were frequently worked. Office environment was extremely toxic."
Employee Services Specialist (Former Employee) says"It was a busy work environment. I did not learn more than what I knew when I started. Management could have been more interactive and supportive. Toxic culture due to too many wannabe chiefs. The hardest part was lack of training and support. I do not want to discourage anyone from working here based on my poor experience. This institution maybe exactly what you are looking for. I would advise, if you accept a position here to keep looking just in case they do not meet your expectations for what you are looking for in an organization. It felt like I paid them more to be there then what I was getting paid to be there. Negativity cancelled out the enjoyable. I had too high of expectations for this job. Also, the lack of using emojis and LOLs in the correspondences makes you come off as having a tone. Good Luck! Cons: 6 month probation if hourly, 12 month if salary, no advancement opportunities only lateral, all other insurance plans were expensive, providers were basically Medicaid/Medicare providers, parking is not free, parking is expensive"
Design (Former Employee) says"Inexperienced or inept management, often managers have zero experience in the department they are managing."
Administrator (Former Employee) says"There was a serious lack of leadership. The focus seems to be on employees as opposed to the students and community it should be serving. There are a few people there who have been there forever and do not want any kind of change. Cons: No campus leadership."
Counselor (Former Employee) says"I worked here for two years and in that time had absolutely no feeling that my job was secure. I repeatedly got called into meeting which I felt were held for the purpose of intimidating me into complying with management on things I did not personally agree with. I felt anxious constantly, and oftentimes went home feeling sick because of stress. I was relieved from duty at random with absolutely no warning beforehand, and had my access stripped on the spot. I graduated from this institution. I worked here as a student worker before my full-time staff position. I will never recommend UH to anyone in my life, and I will never take classes there again. Cons: Management, senior leadership, job culture, processes are archaic, no organization"
