    I have been working at University of Nevada Las Vegas as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked as intern and it was a great experience cause you are at the core of the new technology and work with professor so you will learn a lot. The hours are really flexible and you are all the pros of the students.

    Cons

    The salary can be a cons for some people because you won't earn what you can earn in a big company. But it's still good beause the cost of life in Las Vegas is cheap. The other thing to keep in my is you won't have a lot of career opportunities unless you do a PhD and become professor.

    Pros

    They're really flexible with the work schedule, as a student Ist and an employee second. They are very understanding of circumstancial issues, and the supervisors are fun/friendly/ but it is a job. Great first job.

    Cons

    I can't say I have one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can't think of any, hm maybe more emphasis on community events and incorporating that into the work force to lighten thinthings up

    I worked at University of Nevada Las Vegas part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful campus. Events held for employees, and special offers to them as well.

    Cons

    Some staff members have little initiative to assist, either others within the UNLV community or the general public. There are a few that do the bare minimum to get by, and don't try to mask it. Also: communication between departments is not very good at all. Parking. Paid once a month. Benefits aren't that great either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage a culture of "internal service." Work to improve communication between departments.

    I worked at University of Nevada Las Vegas full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There were many exciting things going on at UNLV at all levels of the organization. Most faculty and staff were highly committed to improving student learning and experience. The climate around campus was generally very positive. If you like to go to work each morning with the expectation of making an impact, this is a good place for you!

    Cons

    Really the only difficult thing about working at UNLV was that it was subject to budget fluctuations due to the state's funding process. There was a general sense of nervousness whenever the state budget came up for review.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up, things were great!
