    I have been working at Aurora University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Support new staff and work to provide helpful access to materials and training.

    Cons

    Pay for most pro-rata faculty is about average. Pro rata salaries in the Education College are lower than average and inequitable to the rest of the campus colleges.

    Former Employee - Admission Representative in Aurora, IL

    I worked at Aurora University full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Positive mission, servant leadership, good work life balance, department culture is strongly dedicated to teamwork.

    Cons

    The organization as a whole is growing quickly and experiencing some growing pains in terms of managing that growth, maintaining a sense of identity, and remaining true to their mission. Ability to grow and be promoted within the organization has been historically stunted, though that does seem to be improving. Academia in General is somewhat slow paced, both with making and embracing change.

    I worked at Aurora University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I got some real behind the scenes access to the lab equipment, which helped me moving beyond my bachelor's degree.

    Cons

    Most of the labs were fairly simple, and I may have benefited from more extensive experience.

    I have been working at Aurora University

    Pros

    The class sizes are small enough to be able to interact with classmates and the teachers. The teachers are friendly and they are always willing to help, no matter the problem. Amazing fun and great environment.

    Cons

    I cant think of anything at the moment.
