    Pros

    You get great experience and hands on learning with some very established faculty members. On top of the experience, you get paid $8/hr which is a plus. You have to apply for the funding for both the 1st year and 2nd year.

    Cons

    In reality, $8/hr isn't much. But it's unusual because you gain great academic experience while getting paid. Some work can be repetitive and boring.

    Advice to Management

    They're great. Really care about the learning experience.

    it is a normal state univerisity as normal as most other state univiersities in Mid-west area.

    It is located in mid-west which is considered as a big country yard. No doubt, it is realy a contryside land.

    Pros

    Everything! I love what I do and love where I work. From the top to everyone below, I find UNO a wonderfully supportive, healthy environment. It is clear that we are cared for and this helps us create the best possible environment for our students. The buildings are beautiful and so are the grounds. There is a sense of pride in the UNO community that is often a rare find.

    Cons

    Ofcourse, I wish that the pay was higher. I have no other complaints.

    Pros

    Great people, decent pay, beautiful campus. I really enjoyed the relationships I made on the job. I was very lucky to have a nice office and access to updated technology.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity for advancement, for some employees - the technology was quite outdated. At times it felt like some were at a disadvantage only being an "instructor" and not "faculty".

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more opportunity for advancement. Ensure all employees have updated technology. The University needs to approve partner benefits. It would be nice to have employee meal discounts in cafeterias.
