    I have been working at University of Nevada Las Vegas part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people, lots of teaching opportunities. I have been here a while and have learned there are opportunities if you seek them out.

    Cons

    Low salary and benefits aren't that great considering the skyrocketing price of mandatory health insurance (thanks Obama). Getting involved with research and teaching opportunities requires a lot of asking around.

  6.  

    Well supported by my department, though interdepartmental communication was sometimes difficult.

    I worked at University of Nevada Las Vegas part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I liked working in an academic environment, and my department generally had a positive esprit de corps. The campus is lovely. Las Vegas is a fun city.

    Cons

    Lack of resources due to budget restrictions sometimes made it hard to innovate new programs for our students.

    Current Employee - Graduate Assistant in Las Vegas, NV

    I have been working at University of Nevada Las Vegas as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    UNLV provides strong personal relationships, supporting professionals, and a great opportunity for personal growth, advancement, and continual challenges when an individual goes looking for them. It is extremely difficult to be fired from UNLV, while this provides great job security, it also means that people who should move on, do not.

    Cons

    UNLV provides an extremely siloed structure where individuals and departments rarely know other people outside of their division and has excessive bureaucracy, often requiring individuals to perform tasks which are unnecessary for the sake of paperwork.

    I worked at University of Nevada Las Vegas full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere relative to other research universities I have worked at.

    Cons

    Budget basically at mercy of Nevada legislators who are very libertarian and oppose tax increases. Las Vegas has a low skill population with a large retirement community - neither who are pre-disposed towards supporting higher education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder to change image of university with local elites (particularly the Las Vegas Review Journal crowd).

    I worked at University of Nevada Las Vegas

    Pros

    Young, talented people looking to improve themselves academically. Great benefits for workers. Bosses are straightforward and very performance oriented. College atmosphere.

    Cons

    A bit too much backbiting and gossiping goes on in the workplace for my taste. Work pace is varied depending on how many students come in and can thus be very slow and monotonous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership was very professional and communicated clearly what was expected. Feedback was given promptly and regularly to help tutors succeed.

    Doesn't Recommend

    The city of Las Vegas is a beautiful place to live, with a relatively low cost of living and no state income tax.

    The economic status of the university is currently in limbo.
