    Graduate Assistant

    Graduate Assistant (Current Employee) Las Vegas, NV

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

    ConsLow 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.

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

    Program Coordinator (Former Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsI 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.

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

    Good Place to work

    Graduate Assistant (Current Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsUNLV 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.

    ConsUNLV 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.

    Nice people hit hard by recession

    Associate Professor (Former Employee) Las Vegas, NV

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

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

    Very rewarding if you make it so

    Tutor (Former Employee) Las Vegas, NV

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    My experience here has been great.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Las Vegas, NV

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

    ConsThe economic status of the university is currently in limbo.

    A very positive time in my career

    Communications (Former Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsUNLV was a great place to work when I had small children. The benefits and leave were very family friendly.

    ConsThe university was going through a very difficult transition and budgets were being cut everywhere. Some of the cuts made sense and others seemed to hurt the school's long-term prospects for recovery.
