Current Employee - Manager in Normal, IL
Current Employee - Manager in Normal, IL

I have been working at Illinois State full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Lots of nice people; chance to help students in their futures and help develop the next generation. Good benefits.

Cons

Parking is very difficult on campus. And the people tend to be isolated in the sense that outsiders often have a hard time overcoming their status as outsiders. There is a definite preference to go with folks who are "local" to ISU.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more willing to hire folks outside of ISU.

    Flexibility on when the work could be done and the opportunity to work with different faculty members.
