    Pros

    It's a great place if you want stable work environment, steady income, and continuous work.

    Cons

    It's a great example of how convoluted the Education system is. Very difficult to overcome obstacles if you want to get anything done. If you aren't faculty, don't expect a decent paycheck unless you're at an executive level. You can't move up/get promoted as staff unless you follow their training programs.

    Advice to Management

    Consider evaluating available resources and promoting an environment where alternative ideas are a good thing. It's embarrassing to walk into a position only to discover that you've gone back 5 years in time from your previous position.

    I worked at University of Nebraska full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    UNL is a great place to work. Every office has it's own culture. Be sure to interview the people who are interviewing you. Ask questions about their specific culture and how they handle things in their department. Most of the time it's a family focused place that affords people flexibility.

    Cons

    Depending on your department, it can be frustrating to work through the system. So many levels to go through to accomplish somewhat simple tasks at times. Make friends and use your connections to your advantage.

    Advice to Management

    Don't promote based on seniority, promote based on talent and work ethic.
