Pros

Excellent staff and good support services. There are people that truly care about students and want to see them succeed

Cons

Slow moving and bureaucratic. Like many other schools the students are more focused on getting by than having vision for their futures.

Advice to Management

Innovate and let natural leaders lead regardless of their academic background.

    Pros

    The graduate assistant position covered tuition for a Masters program. Additionally, it paid a modest stipend to cover living expenses. In other words, this position gave me a free Masters degree-it's hard to say that's a bad thing! Also, this allowed the student to work closely with a faculty member, allowing him or her to seek mentorship.

    Cons

    The stipend was a bit too modest, but then again the non-cash benefits more than made up for the modesty in stipend. The hours were great-only twenty per week, which allowed more than enough time to focus on school work and assistantship work.


  2. Working for Eastern Illinois has helped me become a better person. I would recommend them to ANYONE!

    Pros

    Great benefits, excellent people, down to earth attitude with minimal B.S.

    Cons

    The campus is located in a less-populated area making creature comforts like shopping malls a bit of a drive. If you can survive without those malls, you can surly rough it here.

    Advice to Management

    Have benefits to Student Workers. They make up a great deal of your work force and the only thing they get out of it is minimum wage at-best.
