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

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, great work-life balance. Salaries are painfully low. Technology services and overall efficiency are also not impressive. There's a ton of administrative inefficiency - things take forever and procedures are often illogical so it's hard to get things done quickly; especially as compared to anything in the private sector, but the time off is generous and the atmosphere is hard to beat.

    Cons

    Terrible salaries; lots of cuts on health benefits in last year.
