Current Employee - Student IT Technician in Normal, IL

I have been working at Illinois State part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great benefits compared to most employment opportunities.
Most people you work with are great, and because the teams are usually small, you get very close.

Cons

In turn for great benefits, pay is usually less than the average for that job.
IT Management is poor at making decisions for the long term, and thus have caused many developers to seek employment elsewhere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not everyone that is a great employee will be a great manager. A manager, however, should have experience in the job they are managing.

    Former Employee - Graduate Assistant in Normal, IL

    I worked at Illinois State part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It was a really good experience for me to work at ISU as a graduate assistant. It pays good enough to have a student life in a city like Normal which costs of life is not too much. I did not have to pay my tuition as well which was good. I also learned many things while I was working as a research assistant.

    Cons

    you may find Normal/IL very boring small town. The weather is also tough! winters are so cold and summers are freaking hot and humid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The student cost should be waived for graduate assistant like tuition.
