    I have been working at University of Nebraska full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    20 hr per week;
    Research related work;
    Good opportunity to get paid in campus;
    There will be great balance of work and class. You can arrange your time to do the research and help in the laboratory.

    Cons

    Not too much negative comments here. The only think you may need to consider is that you'd better to stop by a group first and talk with the group members before you talked with the professor who is in charge, since some groups have really heavy load.

    Pros

    In Lincoln, NE the cost of living is reasonable and the University of Nebraska Lincoln has top of the line resources and great advisors.

    Cons

    The location take awhile to get used to with no international airport nearby, however I do like everything about the University itself.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage young scientists to publish early and present their work at as many national and international conferences as possible.

    Pros

    Cost of Living, Large Campus with great facilities

    Cons

    Professors lie about whether they have funding for you or not, currently in bed with oil companies who try to commission researchers to boil hydrocarbons like heptane in unventilated labs, professors lack concern for student safety, hexavalent chromium particles were detected in one of the labs and responsible staff covered it up, professors try to run you out of the program if you have a medical condition like diabetes because they do not want their research projects to be compromised even if you are making all the gateways in your research

    Advice to Management

    UNL may eventually be sued for unfair and unsafe business practices

    I worked at University of Nebraska part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Time-off policies, hours and wages (along with benefits packages) are all solid here. If you are hired into a good office environment, you are lucky. Everyone is looking to help the students, which is admirable.

    Cons

    Central administration does not look out for the individual departments/programs that students are actually working with, fueling most of their support instead to advising, recruitment and athletics. It is leaving many academic programs out to dry.

    Advice to Management

    Put your money where your mouth is: support the academic programs. Giving higher perks/full-time work to office staff may also provide the needed stability for individual departments to grow (and gain recruitment).

    Pros

    Very good pay coupled with low cost of living. One can plan and live a very balanced enjoyable life. Flexibility of timing. Overall, excellent place to work.

    Cons

    The weather gets very, very harsh but even that does not warrant a snow-day. Thats about it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good job -maybe reconsider weather policy as you have loads of people coming in from all over the world who are not used to the extreme weather here.

    Pros

    The job is very flexible around my school schedule and I got to choose my own office hours. It is a great position to work on leadership skills as well as expanding knowledge in my own field of study

    Cons

    Lots of times the students make problems way more complicated than they need to be, which took more time to fix on my end. Also fair and consistent grading to a multitude of student solutions.

    Advice to Management

    keep it up
