    I have been working at University of Nevada, Reno part-time

    Pros

    Great people work there and they offer flexible hours, for my position at least.

    Cons

    Their pay for student workers is low. Their raises are measly and to unlock the highest raise per year you need to log volunteer hours through a platform they manage. This might seem great for them to do, but they also use these hours to advertise themselves as "great for the community"..

    Advice to Management

    Pay student workers a higher base income.

    Pros

    One of the pros of working for UNR is the amazing people and opportunities for professional development. Another pro is the benefits, especially the retirement plan.

    Cons

    One con of UNR is communication needs work. Some departments work as silos and some are resistant to change. Another con is there is not universal training, or very limited training for some of the universal systems.
