    I worked at University of Nebraska Omaha part-time

    Pros

    I absolutely loved my time as a graduate teaching assistant at UNO. I was a GTA while I worked on my MA, and the professors I worked for really understood the balance between my work and the courses I was taking. I would highly recommend this type of position to anyone.

    Cons

    Not much to say here, I had a great experience and really enjoyed my work, my colleagues, and my time as a GTA at UNO. My only qualm would be perhaps increasing the hourly pay of the GTAs.

    Pros

    I love the relaxed culture, the smart people and being able to help students have a successful journey through their college years. This is a great job if work-life balance is important to you as it is to me now. The pay could be better, but for my needs right now, it works.

    Cons

    Things are unnecessarily bureaucratic as is the case in most academic institutions but you just have to get used to things moving a little slower than in the corporate world

    Advice to Management

    Streamline.Streamline.Streamline.

    The university campus is currently in remodeling process, therefore transportation can be quite troublesome

    I have been working at University of Nebraska Omaha full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Well maintained buildings Centrally located in the city Well funded

    Cons

    Entrenched faculty and staff who passively aggressively block adoption of new ideas, teaching models and/or incorporation of technology. Upper administration does not have a firm grasp of college/department issues--or perhaps they are just ignoring systemic problems. Good-old boy system rules most appointments, with little consideration for skill set, but simply who you know (or if you have lived in NE your entire life). Faculty/Staff are not valued. No parking for faculty/staff unless you get to campus well before 8:00 during the academic year.

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking about being a research institution and start acting like one.

    Pros

    Work on real time projects. Grow as a team member and build on skills that matter to you. Work Friendly Environment.

    Cons

    Pays a lit lower than the industry but worth working for.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are nice: tuition, healthcare, on-campus daycare. Working directly with students is a plus. The overall culture of the university is a fun atmosphere and full of a lot of diversity.

    Cons

    There isn't a lot of upward movement for those at the Office/Support staff levels. There is an interesting atmosphere between faculty and staff. Not always a very supportive environment since it is all very decentralized.

    Advice to Management

    Have stronger leadership and management training for leaders. Give more pathways for those outside of faculty positions. Offer more equality in benefits from those in Office/Administrative support as for those in Managerial/Professional positions.
