      Pros

      Pension is great if you are planning to stay until retirement. Read more into the NMERB before committing. Tuition remission is awesome

      Cons

      Pension is only transferrable within NM. You must stay 5 years to be vetted. Bureaucracy makes the job hard.

      Horrible Management, Horrible Experience

      Pros

      Diversity, Nice Campus, Lots of Classroom Resources

      Cons

      Management has their own clique and a superiority complex. They look down on classroom staff and bully staff. There is no communication between management and staff yet you are expected to know everything. The master teachers sit in their office all day and are on their cell phones or casually talking. Management also does not follow their own rules and safety protocols. I worked here for 1 year and laid eyes on the director one time, she doesn't visit classrooms. I didn't know who she was until I had been working there for 4 months. Student employees are exploited. Expected to do the same amount of work as the full time staff but get 0 benefits. The turnover rate is extremely high. If a staff member is sick they are still expected to show up and then maybe put in infant rooms. If you need help in a room the master teachers will either show up an hour later or not at all. You are expected to problem solve on your own. It is an inconvenience to the master teachers to have to deal with issues. It was a miserable experience. Save yourself, don't work here.

      Pros

      Good retirement benefits, PTO, reliable employer throughout the pandemic.

      Cons

      Poor management in some departments (not all, each department widely varies). My department does not have the budget to give me a raise and does not provide any room for growth.

      Pros

      Local and an opportunity to teach in ones field. Able to operate independently for the must part.

      Cons

      Expect to receive little to no support as an a faculty with very little opportunity for advancement. They are overseen by all the control of UNM Main Campus which is stifling at best. If you have to deal with Title IX you are in for an expensive experience that will eat away at your minimal salary.

      Could be worse

      Jul 2, 2021 - Registered Nurse, BSN in Albuquerque, NM

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      For the most part clinical staff work hard and well together. I have never been told to give VIP tx to someone, every patient is treated well. They try to promote from within and there is a union. The night shift and weekend diff is very good. If you work at least 30 hours a week, the insurance (which is only UNMH and only fair) is included as a benefit.

      Cons

      The Occupational Health program is a problem and their decisions on many things are arbitrary, illegal (know employee who won court case against them) and illogical. They "top out" their pay scale at 15 years, so any experience beyond that does not receive a real raise. Raises are minimal and do not keep up with inflation. The worst issue is that administration (definitely not leadership) does not seem to truly understand what they are supposed to be running. For example, when Covid first hit, they decreed that the respiratory therapists could not be given N95 masks. This job is the extreme front line but admin did not know what they did, hint it is in the name.
