    I have been working at University of Nebraska Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Provides competitive salary. Omaha is very affordable compared to other cities.

    Cons

    Omaha is far from almost everywhere, and nothing fun to do, other than a giant zoo


  2. Good place to start your research career!

    Pros

    Great spending time with other interns! Really enjoyed working with my PI and learned a lot about neuroscience.

    Cons

    The program's weekly lunches aren't the most engaging, and you aren't guaranteed a good project, so you need to work with your PI beforehand if possible to talk out a solid experiment

    Pros

    Good work environment. Great people to work with in research. Nice facilities and good benefits.

    Little room for advancement in research without a doctoral degree. No incentive bonuses and little recognition for excellence except silly award pins.

    Advice to Management

    Help your employees advance.

    Pros

    Management positions are much better than private industry. Secure jobs if not on grant dollars. Good benefits and time-off policies; generous tuition benefit. Much lower stress than private industry. Academic leadership is responsive to majority of needs. Senior leadership has grand plans...we shall see what they amount to in the long run; difficult to assess at its infancy state.

    Cons

    Positions are very difficult to get; competition is fierce for even the lowest paying jobs. Internal advancement prospects are dismal. Lower pay than industry average. Must follow Board of Regents directives. Difficult relationship with Nebraska Medicine (clinical enterprise); they don't know how to play well together, as they are separate companies with different philosophies. Any position which requires regular collaboration with Nebraska Medicine will be a significant uphill battle.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees who will actually be carrying out the work. Don't be afraid of change; it is inevitable, especially in the continually adapting world of healthcare.

    Pros

    Can be a good company if you are in the right department. I ended up in a very good department with fantastic co-workers that were very supportive and worked well as a team.

    Cons

    Company has some VERY poor managers. First department I worked in, I had an insecure manager. Held me back. Did not utilize me to my fullest potential.

    Advice to Management

    Better review process of upper management. Don't let management coast through their jobs. HR needs to be more involved. Get managers better training.

    Cons

    Hard to give an accurate description as there are so many different types of jobs at this employer that one person's duties and perks can vary greatly to the next.

    None.
