    I have been working at University of New Mexico full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are spectacular, and are often the main reason people stay with UNM. However, there is a cost; the pay is often about 10% less than what you will find in the industry.

    Cons

    Management is sometimes not the greatest, although this varies from department-to-department. My department is great and has a much more liberal view of things like telecommuting and personal growth opportunities. However, I know that there are many other departments where this is not the case.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace telecommuting and other cost-free ways to retain talented employees. State funding, and thus pay, is something that cannot be controlled, but you can provide employees with happiness by allowing them the freedom to have work from home days.

    I have been working at University of New Mexico part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Part-time employees get full benefits. It's a job in a place where aren't many jobs... that's about the best thing I can say

    Cons

    Part-time employees pay twice what full-time employees do for health insurance. I have worked for you and him for more than 5 years, and I have never received one cent of a raise. I work hard and accommodate everyone's requests for help in a cheerful manner M eanwhile, rude faculty members who don't even answer their emails receive promotions, awards and bonuses. The chronic budget shortfall means lower-level employees have to do more work when people resign and their positions are not refilled. But you don't see the upper-level managers sacrificing their salaries or having to do more work.

    Advice to Management

    People can work in a dismal, hopeless job nvironment for only so long.
