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

    Pros

    Close proximity to ski resorts, Sierra Nevadas, and California.

    Cons

    Sexism, gas-lighting, throwing shade, empire building, Sr faculty abuse of Jr. faculty-- it all happens here. If you report anything to administration, chances are it will get swept under the rug and you will be labeled as a malcontent. A lot of lip service is given to diversifying the campus and supporting minorities, but so far, there has been no follow through. This is a small-town operation with an active good old boy network.

    I have been working at University of Nevada, Reno part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible work schedule that takes your classes into consideration, can work full-time during breaks/summer vacation, supervisors are helpful and nice.

    Cons

    Pay is relatively low, as a student you get no job related benefits, recent budget cuts mean most student workers are overworked and underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of forcing student workers to take on more responsibilities for the same about of paid work, either hire and train more workers or increase salaries for capable employees.
