Terrible Management, Standard Gov Job Culture
Equipment Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVMarch 30, 2018
Management was non-existent until they needed someone to blame and the standard government "it's not my job" attitude was always present. There was also an excessive amount of nepotism that led to a lot of people having jobs they weren't really qualified for.
Pros
Government Job Security
Cons
Everything Else

Associate Director of Enterprise Applications (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVDecember 14, 2017
UNLV is a good place to work but like all organizations it has its challenges. Campus seems to be getting better focus on strategic and coordinated decision making.
Pros
Good work environment, things happen in waves so not 100% stress, people/teams are usually available to share the burden so you are not alone.
Cons
Some organizations seem to be favored and can make decisions that impact others

Great for immature kids that just want to hangout
Personal Trainer (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVJuly 25, 2017
Lots of micromanaging, very little freedom. Treated like children which works for most of the employees. Many pointless meetings and activities that are supposed to be team builders.

It's ok if you want to be in the same place forever
Assistant Director (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVJuly 17, 2017
It's almost impossible to get fired, so you will work with some weak team members. Managers/Directors are all powerless to do anything as they all blame politics. President is not in tune with anyone except his own cabinet. Very stereotypical of government employers, tons of waste and unproductive players. Only pros are everyone leaves at 5pm, so you will always have work/life balance. You also get a lot of PTO, which makes up for the below market salary that they pay for each position.
Pros
PTO and work/life balance
Cons
Way below market salaries and unproductive team members

Voice Teacher (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVApril 9, 2015
Learning a lot about myself as a teacher and ways to help young students improve vocally. The hardest part is figuring out effective ways for the students to understand what they need to do physically to achieve proper technique in a way that they can understand. The most rewarding part is seeing students grow.

Undergraduate Research
Undergraduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVFebruary 8, 2015
I started my second undergraduate research with my major at UNLV at January. In this project, I use fluorescence to detect urobilin, which is an emerging indicator of fecal contamination. In addition to detecting the contaminant, I also perform some bench-scale experiments to show how it can be removed from water with UV light and an advanced oxidation process.
Pros
Laboratory experience
Cons
Short breaks
