    Interesting but also disappointing

    Office Supervisor (Former Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

    ProsFree tuition, I was able to almost complete my MBA with hardly any out of pocket expense. Chill work environment, casual dress code

    ConsBudget cuts, budget cuts, budget cuts. Did not receive a raise for the 5 years I worked there do to the state budget situation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to find other ways to reward employees if it is not possible financially.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Not bad, but confusing...

    Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

    ProsIt's big enough so it isn't boring, parking is usually easy to find somewhere, the weather is great and the campus is compact.

    ConsWay too many hoops to jump through to do something simple, have to go through numerous departments for simple tasks and to get simple questions answered.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet departments be more independent! Many man hours are lost because of redundant tasks.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Management Management Mangement

    Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

    Pros- Pays for school if you want to take classe or finish up degree
    - Great Benefits
    - Good places to eat for lunch located on Campus
    - Discount for employees at AT&T

    Cons- Employees who work less move up get treated better
    - Employees who work hard, get treated horrible.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCheck what is going on in each department. Pay attention to issues that are going on in all depts and employees who have concerns. UNLV had great employees working there but were being mistreated. Now they have workers who dont care about the work or students.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Don't have too high of expectations and you will be fine

    Part-time Instructor (Former Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

    ProsThe University is pretty laid back. There are a lot of food court options. The basketball games are a lot of fun.

    ConsThe state is undergoing massive budget cuts, which makes job stability an impossibility. These budget cuts affect education at all levels, so in general, students are less prepared for college.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI am sorry that the University of Nevada, Las Vegas does not have many options for improvement. With the budget cuts, improvements seem an impossibility. Perhaps utilize more methods to weed out unprepared students. These students should go to CSN or take only remedial classes before being allowed into classes with the rest of the student population.
