    I have been working at University of Nevada, Reno part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You can find some world class faculty in UNR. Good area, lots of sunshine, lakeTahoe, casinos and ski resorts.

    Cons

    The university and the city as a whole is not academically motivated. Keep increasing the tuition and the state cuts budget continuously after the economy downturn.

    Advice to Management

    Better treatment of graduate assistants who are the actual workforce in this business, would be a plus . As a married international graduate assistant, I have the same low wage ($1400) for four years with no dental or vision benefit and no vacation, I would recommend reviewing related policies. Some universities allow dependents of the graduate assistants to study with in-state tuition but we don't have that one either.


  2. "Pretty much your typical state job"
