Former Intern - Center Manager in Evanston, IL

I worked at Northwestern University as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

great relaxing environment with intellectual people around you. Great work life balance and great location. Very great job security for regular workers. Great place to work and study at the same time.

Cons

You can't expect high salaries from an academic institution where the fund is limited. Internal promotion might take some time for regular employees since there are many workers who have been working for the school for a long time.

    I worked at Northwestern University

    Pros

    Northwestern pays their PhD students well, though it ranges by department. The health insurance was great and you can't beat the location. Of course there was the wolrd-class education too, and name recognition and good network to find a job after graduation. The graduate school also provided a lot of great social programs and services for grad students.

    Cons

    Some departments are huge, and therefore a bit overwhelming to navigate.

    Former Employee - Library-Aide in Evanston, IL

    I worked at Northwestern University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I did my work study here as a library aide for several years. The people were a pleasure to work with. They gave me real work and responsibilities and i was able to develop a relationship with our library clients. They expect you to work hard, but you can grow here.

    Cons

    Not much to complain about. So many jobs. Find one that is right for you.
