    THE PURCHASING DEPT IS A MESS!!

    Purchasing (Former Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsGood benefits. UNLV is centrally located in the Valley.

    ConsThe management team (Director and Asst. Director) sorely lack people and management skills. UNLV needs to investigate why this dept has so much turnover - and the investigation will point to the current management - which is sooooo BAD; VERY, VERY BAD!! I will NEVER recommend anyone to work in the UNLV's Purchasing dept.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange the current management of the Purchasing/Contracts Dept. and make sure that the college interns actually work and do the simple tasks they are assigned to do. It seems that the interns come at will, NEVER FILE and if they do it's wrong due to most of the interns cannot alphabetize simple names (our future leaders) "Stupid is as stupid does."

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Tough place to work

    Professor (Current Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsDecent salary. Assistant professors face tough standards, but are provided the time to pursue research interests.

    ConsExtremely political. Managment style can be dismissive and confrontational. A negative spin is put on almost any accomplishment. Deans and management concentrate on monitoring faculty, rather than providing the resources required to be successful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow departments to manage themselves. The focus should be on providing faculty with the resources required to be successful.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A good working experience when you get past the budget cuts and low morale. Better days ahead.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsWhen I was hired at UNLV seven years ago, it was a great place to work. Extraordinary family/work balance, liberal vacation and sick leave policies. My work was challenging and rewarding and salary and benefits were good.

    ConsBefore applying for a job at UNLV, please research thoroughly the budget cuts and economic woes UNLV and the state of Nevada are enduring. Positions, colleges, programs, and departments have been cut. No raises of any kind since 2007 and morale is very low as the people who are still employed are experiencing stress and overwork situations.

    If you can find the right position here, it should be very satisfying.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConcentrate on developing staff - beyond the requirements of tenure - and build a stronger infrastructure for the future. More empowerment of middle management, more training of supervisors will go a long way toward strengthening a financially troubled organization that has potential.
