    Former Employee - Librarian in Las Vegas, NV

    I worked at University of Nevada Las Vegas full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There were many exciting things going on at UNLV at all levels of the organization. Most faculty and staff were highly committed to improving student learning and experience. The climate around campus was generally very positive. If you like to go to work each morning with the expectation of making an impact, this is a good place for you!

    Cons

    Really the only difficult thing about working at UNLV was that it was subject to budget fluctuations due to the state's funding process. There was a general sense of nervousness whenever the state budget came up for review.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up, things were great!

    I worked at University of Nevada Las Vegas part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation package (especially for non-Nevada residents who get out-of-state fees waived), academic environment with increasing focus on research, leadership (depending on department and professors), personal and professional growth, ability to balance work and school, closer relationships with faculty, flexible schedule

    Cons

    Did not have a personal office (6-8 graduate assistants in computer lab style room), may have to work varying hours (nights, weekends) depending on project deadlines

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase research throughout the university and continue to give students experience with research based projects

    Former Employee - IT Technician in Las Vegas, NV

    I worked at University of Nevada Las Vegas full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a very friendly environment to work in. I had a lot of freedom in deciding how to solve specific or unusual problems and my supervisor has always been very helpful and encouraging. Also, if you are a student, they are very lenient on your schedule and working around your classes. I recommend working here.

    Cons

    I got paid lower than a standard IT technician due to being a student but the pros more than make up for the cons, especially the flexibility of schedule for students.

    Former Employee - Writing Consultant in Las Vegas, NV

    I worked at University of Nevada Las Vegas part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was an English Major so I was able to be a Writing Consultant while I complete my bachelors degree.

    Cons

    It was only a semester program. I wish it had lasted longer!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I obtained my bachelors degree in English, so communication is my strong point. I am currently obtaining my Master's degree in Organizational Leadership and Management so being organized, completing tasks in a timely manner and maintaining positive client relations is my strong point.
