    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at University of Nebraska Omaha full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great working environment, great team, fun working with students and watching them grow and become professionals in the field. Provided diversity of projects and assignments.

    Cons

    Lack of adequate funding and support, now team is being cut in half and students are losing opportunities too. Prior to cuts, hard to imitate new projects or adequately market awareness for our contributions to student's education.

    Advice to Management

    Do not undervalue the educational benefits & professional opportunities that UNO TV has given students for 40 years, cutting the department in half and removing crew opportunities will negatively impact students' education and progression into the professional world.

    Pros

    UNO is like a family. There can be some characters, but its a great place to be! Everyone watches out for each other and helps when they can.

    Because UNO is a state institution, state budget cuts can cause a loss of positions and pay increases can be affected.
