    I have been working at University of Nebraska Omaha full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits including 15 hours tuition/year for full-time employees. Interesting and rewarding to be working around students. Relaxed, relatively flat management structure overall. Friendly, nice people to work with. Great place to be if you like a university environment.

    Cons

    Lack of advancement opportunities for employees. Employees are often treated as second-class citizens and have no voice in governance or management structure, even though they are running the place. Working in colleges or units with faculty is very challenging, as faculty have high expectations. Pay should be more competitive to retain high quality employees. The campus is going through severe growing pains, which is creating stress and needs to be managed appropriately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your professional staff--they work extremely hard for the university. Offer more encouragement and opportunities for professional development. Tell them they are appreciated once in a while.

    I have been working at University of Nebraska Omaha full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great helping students achieve their educational goals. Campus is turning into more of a residential campus and less commuter. Good benefits and reduced tuition available.

    Cons

    Multiple units pulling in different directions. Some units do their own thing. Goal is to educate students but some lack of cohesiveness and cooperation between different divisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue offering strong benefits but find a way to work together and support the employees that make the university run
