IT Technician

IT Technician (Former Employee)
Las Vegas, NV

I worked at University of Nevada Las Vegas full-time for more than 3 years

ProsIt is a very friendly environment to work in. I had a lot of freedom in deciding how to solve specific or unusual problems and my supervisor has always been very helpful and encouraging. Also, if you are a student, they are very lenient on your schedule and working around your classes. I recommend working here.

ConsI got paid lower than a standard IT technician due to being a student but the pros more than make up for the cons, especially the flexibility of schedule for students.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Graduate Assistant

Graduate Assistant (Current Employee)
Las Vegas, NV

I have been working at University of Nevada Las Vegas part-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat people, lots of teaching opportunities. I have been here a while and have learned there are opportunities if you seek them out.

ConsLow salary and benefits aren't that great considering the skyrocketing price of mandatory health insurance (thanks Obama). Getting involved with research and teaching opportunities requires a lot of asking around.
