    I have been working at University of Nevada, Reno full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Reno is a nice place to live with a moderate cost of living. Decent benefits and paid time off. Laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    A lot of bureaucracy. Protocols continuously change. Poor morale amongst staff makes getting things done across Departments difficult. Increased work load with pay cuts for 6 years while paying increasingly more for health benefits and retirement and less in life insurance benefits. Sick of being bullied for being a State employee as political officials find it necessary to make us their scapegoats.

    Advice to Management

    We need more Indians and less chiefs.

    I worked at University of Nevada, Reno full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Faculty benefits are fantastic. -The school of engineering is the bright star on the dull horizon.

    Cons

    -This will always be a sub-par university in a sub-par city. However, leadership is under the impression that UNR can and should compete with bigger campuses which is laughable. This attitude has created a hostile or at least agitated environment for much of campus. -I found that overall incompetence is tolerated as long as you act like you have it together. -There is almost zero chance of internal promotion. -Pay is low, but it's Reno. What would you expect?

    Advice to Management

    If you relax and accept that this is the end of your career, you may find happiness.
