    Pros

    Great management, did very little micromanaging.

    Cons

    Training was minimal. I expected more from such a large institution. I didn't feel equipped or adequate oftentimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something about your training.

    I worked at University of Nebraska

    Pros

    The job is very flexible around my school schedule and I got to choose my own office hours. It is a great position to work on leadership skills as well as expanding knowledge in my own field of study

    Cons

    Lots of times the students make problems way more complicated than they need to be, which took more time to fix on my end. Also fair and consistent grading to a multitude of student solutions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep it up

    I have been working at University of Nebraska full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I suppose the facility is nicely equipped, and it is relatively stress free. The sub-urban campus makes getting around very easy.

    Cons

    Pay is incredibly low. Far below NIH standards. Parking is very expensive.

    Former Employee - Postdoctoral Research Associate in Lincoln, NE

    I worked at University of Nebraska full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    There were nice people there but academia makes it pretty impossible to move laterally so it did me no good.

    Cons

    Tenured faculty are like mini gods. When you have a bad one, they are vengeful and evil.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be useful if the university found ways to prevent tenured faculty from destroying the careers of their underlings. When someone has the reputation of the faculty I worked for, they should not be allowed to hire underlings.

    It is important to know what is going on with the students so that programming and curricula can be applicable to their needs.

    I worked at University of Nebraska

    Pros

    Academic environment makes for casual work environment. Working with students the best; positions with less direct interaction with students less rewarding.

    Cons

    Administrative bloat. Hard to imagine growing student body when faculty positions are cut but administration grows. Hire people with direct missional impact, not more paper pushers.
