    I worked at College of Southern Nevada

    Pros

    It is a very relaxed environment, people are generally there for all the same reason and wonderful hours. Most employers within the college will allow you to do homework during downtime while working.

    Cons

    Can be pretty childish at times with added dramatics being around the younger students and working closely with them.
    Adults can act slightly childish as well because you can be in a very small space with several people.

    Pros

    The vacation day accrual rate is great on top of having so many holidays off. Las Vegas is a great place to work in general

    Cons

    Hidden agendas hinder overall progress. Many workers are stuck in a rut unfortunately. Budget cuts have really hampered progress on every level as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing more with less just does not work. Pay people what they deserve. If they are doing the job of three people their check should reflect that.

    I have been working at College of Southern Nevada

    Pros

    very flexible with YOUR schedule
    very laid back environment
    people are nice
    workload is easy to moderate
    feels good to work in behind-the-scenes of a college entity

    Cons

    your recognition of performance is just by chance. unfair pay raises. i was given same pay raises as others even though i felt others were lax over their times in employment. another person becomes a favorite and obtains a pay raise immediately. /rant

    other than that, college jobs usually pay close to minimum wage for its hourly student positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    office politics. so this includes favoritism, talking about people behind their backs, no consistent recognition of performances, sometimes too laid back in enforcing professionalism.

    Pros

    Nice facilities and good students.

    Cons

    The love mediocrity and are threatened by people who can do better. Don't think you will ever get hired as a full timer if you work as an adjunct.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become aware of the resistance to change in the departments.
