Great town, great school, hard times.

LAN Administrator (Current Employee)
Carbondale, IL

I have been working at Southern Illinois University full-time for more than 10 years

ProsFun college town and beautiful campus. Some fantastic instructors here and pleasant staff to work with. Excellent restaurants and strong music scene for the community size. Close enough to STL or Nashville.

ConsBudget cuts from the state have forced most departments to scale back on everything. Difficult to deliver the experience you know the students expect with limited means. Morale is still fairly high considering, but the general feeling is that more cuts are coming.

Advice to Senior ManagementCut athletics, not academics.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
