Laid back, great leave and benefits. A bit unstable and highly political.
IT Guy (Current Employee) – Las Cruces, NM – July 21, 2017
Worked at NMSU for over 10 years in technology. My management has been fantastic during that time, and the job was always interesting and enjoyable with great co-workers. In the last few years, however, state budgets have taken their toll, and the environment has gone downhill. Most folks are afraid for their jobs, at least a little, and nobody knows if they'll be moved or restructured at any given time.
The benefits are outstanding, far better than private sector, but you make up for it with the salary compensation. Salaries at NMSU are not very competitive.
Great days off and sick day benefits. Nice people to work with.
Instability. Low Pay.
