    Pros

    Focus on students, good benefits and decent pay.

    Cons

    Senior staff are allowed to act like children. Treat lower staff poorly in certain departments. Promotions and new positions are about who you know and not actually what you are qualified for.

    Advice to Management

    Get people who know what they are doing not just who will play the political game or focus on manipulation as a form of management.

    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.
