    I have been working at University of Nevada Las Vegas as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    I highly enjoyed teaching at UNLV. Head of my department gave me lots of autonomy and room to be creative with my teaching style.

    Cons

    Low pay... even for an Adjunct.

    Advice to Management

    To keep good part-time professionals in the classroom, you'll need to up the pay scale for Adjunct Professors.

    Flexible schedules. The work is always challenging (which is a good thing).

    I worked at University of Nevada Las Vegas part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working here gives you a distinct family environment that I haven't gotten with any other employer. Great training & employer accommodates school schedule.

    Cons

    Employer is short on staff which sometimes over books current staff. When staff calls off, some replacements haven't been in the classroom they are assigned to before.

    Advice to Management

    More hands on training. Staff would benefit from shadowing current employees and on the job training. Schedules are accommodated well.

    I worked at University of Nevada Las Vegas as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Decent (but not great) lab equipment for a university
    -Interesting research related to IC development
    -As a student you make your own working hours
    -A few good professors to be found

    Cons

    -There are a lot of lazy professors and working for one of them will be a serious challenge
    -Student contract salaries are pretty low
    -The heat in the summer is brutal

    Advice to Management

    Try to be a little more selective of who is given professor jobs, it is pretty disappointing as a student when your professors don't even return graded homework to you. There was one class that I did not take where the students didn't hand in a single assignment for the entire semester.

    Pros

    Contract position pays most of tuition, plus a small stipend

    Graduate college is a little disorganized

    Organize the college, make things run smoother for the students. Grad school is hard enough without having to figure who to ask a question to.
