    Pros

    Good people (probably depends on the office), generous benefits, great hours, great and affordable Rec Center. Some of the bureaucratic hoops can be annoying but every position has its annoying bureaucratic stuff.

    Cons

    Salary raises are limited. If you are on East Campus, your lunch options are limited, although you are served by an excellent cafe. On City campus, the Union food is unhealthy, typical college fair, but you can easily walk downtown for healthier options.


  2. I worked as a researcher for 6 years at UNL and had a great experience. All staff are very helpful and welcoming.

    Pros

    Hours were flexible, and I worked with wonderful staff to complete my job. I learned a lot and built great relationships with faculty. Doing real research as an undergraduate is a unique opportunity that not all students receive, and if utilized properly, can be used to help get future jobs, even in other fields, which this job helped me with.

    Cons

    Pay was not incentivized. Working on crunched deadlines on more intricate projects wasn't more highly compensated for successful completion than run of the mill tasks like might be in a corporation, but this was a minimal complaint.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. I was very happy there.

    Pros

    Working with a great group of professionals and many great authors. Great benefits. Nebraska Press has a wonderful reputation in the industry. The organization uses its resources very well.

    Cons

    Unless you are a UNL graduate you can feel a little isolated. Very limited opportunities to move up. Pay is barely liveable.

    Advice to Management

    Employees should not be so insular. As a non-UNL grad I felt like the outsider, which is not a great way to cultivate talent. I felt that I could have contributed much more but my voice was seldom heard.


  6. I had great experience in drug discovery while I working here.

    Pros

    It is a low stress job. The medical coverage is great and you get a lot of time off. The benefits are great and for the most part the people are wonderful and caring.

    Cons

    You have to clean nastiness sometimes but that is kind of what the job of a custodian is so it isn't that big of a deal. Typical University politics and change takes time.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more from within instead of always bringing in someone from outside.

    I worked at University of Nebraska

    Pros

    Student-centered, mid-sized campus, easy to meet and network with professionals in other departments, student culture is very friendly and polite.

    Cons

    The location is small rural town, 2-3 hours from a larger metropolitan area. Can be difficult to travel to and from. Has many employees that have been there for lots of years who've been promoted into leadership roles, so very few opportunities to move up and therefore can be resistant to change.

    Advice to Management

    Look for opportunities to develop your outstanding performers and ways to promote them and retain them. Top performers were asked to do more and be more involved, but rarely rewarded, compensated or promoted for their extra effort.


  9. This company is regularly abusive, petty, and entrenched in mediocrity.

    Pros

    They offer more money to graduate students than a lot of universities.

    Cons

    The location is not great for those going into the arts.

    Advice to Management

    Grade inflation requirements for graduate students to get a B- are not helpful. Abusive practices in the areas of assignment scheduling and grading are common. Top talent is attracted by the money but leaves quickly when confronted by the current staff.
