    Great benefits package: 401(b), insurance is excellent (CIGNA), lots of places offer discounts for employees/staff at places near the museum. Free admission to employee and guest to most museums in the Chicagoland area, also including most art museums across the country.

    Best: All "Full-time, Regular employees" can use Tuition Remission (take classes for free at the School of The Art Institute or Roosevelt University.) Some employees have completed Masters degrees while working full-time for the Museum or school. Employees also have access to thousands of dollars worth of software, which they can use on their personal computer. Worst: The Institution sometimes employs individuals under the official label of "Full-time, Regular employees" but with a weekly total of only 21hours a week. This means that Health Insurance Premiums are only contributed to by the institution on a Pro-rated amount, making it to expensive to afford. However, starting in July 2015 "Full-time, Regular employees" who work less than 30hours in a regular week will no longer be eligible for health insurance. For some this may be just as well because they may be able to find more affordable insurance on But it is still not good. Also, when the institution hires "Full-time" employees at less than 30 hours a week, the employee is not eligible for the government student loan forgiveness program, which would normally apply in the case of being full-time at a not-for-profit.
