    I worked at University of Nevada Las Vegas (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is inexpensive to live in Las Vegas...

    Cons

    In Las Vegas - UNLV is a diploma factory; almost all emphasis for the school budget is based on sports and sports utilities, sidelining academics almost completely. It touts itself as a first tier research university, this however, is a joke. Their are good professors and some good programs, however, the vast majority of graduates are substandard. This is reflected in the employees.

    Advice to Management

    A university is about academics and not making money.

    Pros

    Ok college to work for.

    Cons

    Pay for a University not the best, poor leadership by new administration.

    The new leadership is more concerned about looking good to superiors, proving thier worth off the backs of the instructors. (Note: Previous Leadership was amazing.)

    Advice to Management

    Be sensitive to the needs of your instructors. Making changes in policy, while not appraising instructors is highly unprofessional. ( We are not mind readers.)

    Implementing the thought process of being there for the students, and not just being an opportunist, trying to show the university how much money you can save, and or make for them.
