    I worked at University of Nevada, Reno part-time

    Pros

    Beautiful campus
    Good health benefits
    Some great coworkers

    Cons

    Due to it being so hard to get rid of bad eggs at a University, there was sometimes a toxic work environment in my school. I am not sure if it is like this in all areas of the campus. Additionally, if you were not a professor, you were not given the same level of respect.

    Poor compensation

    Advice to Management

    Respect all different positions that make up your organization equally.
