    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, friendly co-workers, healthy campus atmosphere. I enjoy the fact that work schedules are flexible, there are plenty of food options, and a gym on campus with a reasonable monthly fee.

    Cons

    The biggest downside is the parking. Parking is poorly organized and way overpriced. The nearby airport is also a nuisance, with planes flying overhead every few minutes.

    Advice to Management

    Plan major construction and renovation projects to coincide with low volume traffic times e.g. summer and winter breaks versus mid-semester. For special events, do not take away student parking and force students to park so far away and allow guests to have premium parking, it is not fair to paying individuals, especially considering the parking permit fee. If individuals want to attend those events, they can walk too.

    Pros

    easy, can be fun, get to work (often) with your advisor, good benefits (tuition remission, health insurance stipend).

    Cons

    little pay, in some situations may not garner you the correct skill set to get you a future position in your area.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the GAs more money, especially the masters students. There is a disparity between them and the doctoral students.

    Pros

    This is a very laid back work place. Everyone is friendly. You can study on your down time. Your work schedule can be work around your class schedule. You can take time off whenever you want for any reason.

    Cons

    Pay not much more than minimum wage due to low university budget. Job can be tedious and not intellectually stimulating. You won't learn much valuable skills here.

    Advice to Management

    Not much to say. Management is very good. Can't complain.

    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.
