    Departments work great, but HR is a mess

    Pros

    Many resources of larger universities in the system to rely on. Good support for a small college.

    Cons

    HR is terribly unorganized. It can be absurdly long to get any paperwork, benefits, or salaries in place.

    Scrappy, Hardworking Community

    Oct 4, 2022 - Program Director in Omaha, NE
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    People almost always work hard, do a good job, try to help each other, and help students. There may be some "quiet quitting" here and there, but I think it is largely due to exhaustion (see below) and generally not to poor leadership or half-hearted employees. The current Chancellor (since 2021) is enthusiastic, organized, and efficient (and one of the most genuine motivational speakers I've ever heard) is streamlining departments to coordinate better effect change for the educational, research, and service aspects of the university. Although challenging, it has been exciting and I look forward to seeing real synergy across units, stronger student services, and better educational results. There really are a lot of innovative teaching and research activities going around campus that make it feel like an exciting and world-changing place. It is a diverse place to work with a pretty diverse student body: 5500 1st generation students (of 15,000 study body of grad/undergrad students) which makes up 41% of the undergraduate student body. 4000+ students are from under-represented areas. Administrators are often open to new ideas if they reach the right person at a good time, and there are always new centers, programs, and projects that can tackle challenges or promote importantly ideas or changes. It also means as staff that there are occasionally ways to move around or up into new types of roles or positions for special programs, which universities may not always be able to offer given the fairly flat administrative structure and limited advancement opportunities in Higher Ed overall.

    Cons

    UNO is 3rd on the list of priorities for the Board of Regents, and although the only urban public university in Nebraska with amazing connections to businesses, internships, research opportunities, and non-profit communities, departments and units must be incredibly sparing with funds for anything. The limited funds means that many departments are unable to invest faculty or staff time into as projects and special programs. In some places it means there are long delays in getting paperwork processed, updating systems needs, or accessing information. In areas where there is limited staffing for student resources, it also means communication is not always strong or very efficient - to students or faculty/staff - and tracking of resources or their efficiency is more than likely lacking or fragile, occurring because of a person in a department who wants to make sure it happens rather than an institutional oversight process that can offer more resources or longevity after that person is not longer there. Most often the funding challenges mean that people are always asked to do a lot, and while UNO is a great place to find passional people who care about people, education, and communities, that also makes it a place to find people who feel on edge, exhausted, overwhelmed, or fraying around the edges.
