    Beneficial experience

    Graduate Assistant (Former Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsCompensation package (especially for non-Nevada residents who get out-of-state fees waived), academic environment with increasing focus on research, leadership (depending on department and professors), personal and professional growth, ability to balance work and school, closer relationships with faculty, flexible schedule

    ConsDid not have a personal office (6-8 graduate assistants in computer lab style room), may have to work varying hours (nights, weekends) depending on project deadlines

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease research throughout the university and continue to give students experience with research based projects

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    THE PURCHASING DEPT IS A MESS!!

    Purchasing (Former Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsGood benefits. UNLV is centrally located in the Valley.

    ConsThe management team (Director and Asst. Director) sorely lack people and management skills. UNLV needs to investigate why this dept has so much turnover - and the investigation will point to the current management - which is sooooo BAD; VERY, VERY BAD!! I will NEVER recommend anyone to work in the UNLV's Purchasing dept.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange the current management of the Purchasing/Contracts Dept. and make sure that the college interns actually work and do the simple tasks they are assigned to do. It seems that the interns come at will, NEVER FILE and if they do it's wrong due to most of the interns cannot alphabetize simple names (our future leaders) "Stupid is as stupid does."

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Tough place to work

    Professor (Current Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsDecent salary. Assistant professors face tough standards, but are provided the time to pursue research interests.

    ConsExtremely political. Managment style can be dismissive and confrontational. A negative spin is put on almost any accomplishment. Deans and management concentrate on monitoring faculty, rather than providing the resources required to be successful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow departments to manage themselves. The focus should be on providing faculty with the resources required to be successful.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Interesting but also disappointing

    Office Supervisor (Former Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsFree tuition, I was able to almost complete my MBA with hardly any out of pocket expense. Chill work environment, casual dress code

    ConsBudget cuts, budget cuts, budget cuts. Did not receive a raise for the 5 years I worked there do to the state budget situation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to find other ways to reward employees if it is not possible financially.

    IT Technician

    IT Technician (Former Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    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
