    I have been working at University of Nevada, Reno full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There's a lot of BS in that last review. If you can deal with the low pay, it's a great place to work as long as you know your job is safe(and that's not on the administration-it's on the governor, the state and what $ cuts they want to make. Welcome to working in the public sector. That's just the way it works. I had a great boss, great co-workers & mgmt. was very fair as far as comp time(due to my job nature, yeah-some things can't be fixed until late at night). They respect that. Besides the pay, it was a GREAT job-but again, that's out of the hands of pretty much everyone at UNR. Maybe the president gets to decide who gets what, but, everyone was getting choked by the state at the time, so if the whole pie shrinks-yours will too.

    Cons

    The pay is low, but that's the norm for Reno. Being tied to the health of the state economy can lead to a bit of stress(but nothing like the previous disgruntled employee makes it out to be). She seems to have a problem with hiring of the new president, but during my time there-he went to war for the place. That tantrum seems like a personal agenda.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pretty much nothing. They deal with what they're given, as did we. Their hands are tied and they get what they get-as did we-but if the pay scales don't change, the revolving door of employees won't either.
