Pros

Nice laboratory, excellent professors, and great knowledge transfer. The working experience is rewarding and also helps develop your academic and interpersonal skills.

Cons

Some of the technicians and co-workers may not be helpful and some people were selected to the position although not very qualified.

    Pros

    Working on campus and for the university makes it easy to balance academic and social aspects of college.

    Cons

    Getting paid minimum wage isn't very awesome but you honestly don't do enough to be upset by the minimal pay scale.

    Advice to Management

    Have some way to get a raise.


  2. Poor treatment of graduate assistants

    Pros

    You can find some world class faculty in UNR. Good area, lots of sunshine, lakeTahoe, casinos and ski resorts.

    Cons

    The university and the city as a whole is not academically motivated. Keep increasing the tuition and the state cuts budget continuously after the economy downturn.

    Advice to Management

    Better treatment of graduate assistants who are the actual workforce in this business, would be a plus . As a married international graduate assistant, I have the same low wage ($1400) for four years with no dental or vision benefit and no vacation, I would recommend reviewing related policies. Some universities allow dependents of the graduate assistants to study with in-state tuition but we don't have that one either.
