    Pros

    Great retirement and leave benefits, good pay, university is growing

    This is a state job and relies on the legislature approving any raises. They have not approved any merit increases for a number of years.

    Find a way to fund merit increases or you will lose employees.

    I worked at University of Nevada, Reno (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The non-management employees were great to work with and form friendships with.

    Cons

    Changes in management were frequent and at times vacant for long periods of time.

    Unfortunately, the changes were not always for the better. A few had personal vendettas for certain individual employees. Watch your back.

    I have been working at University of Nevada, Reno full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work-life balance is great. There is great flexibility depending on what department and who your manager/ supervisor is. I enjoy coming to work and enjoy the work I do.

    Cons

    They blame their budgets on not being able to pay their employees the wages in which they deserve and work hard for. Raises don't come often. If you're willing to give up money for flexibility then this is the job for you, but don't expect great pay.

    Pros

    This position offers a wide range of opportunities to build customer service and event management skills. The possibility to advance to higher positions is limited, but if you work all 4 years you are able to make a good amount as a supervisor.

    Cons

    The Full Time Staff can be overbearing at certain times.
