No opinion of CEO

I have been working at University of Chicago full-time (More than a year)

Pros

My department respects me a person and as an employee. They respect my time and the fact that we have lives outside of work.

Cons

I work in a high pressure environment with big deadlines. Pay raises are small but my job is flexible so that is a good trade. My commute from the other side of the city is tough.

Advice to Management

Keep respecting your employees and recognize that we are adults who can make smart decisions. We don't need to be watched every second.

    I have been working at University of Chicago as an intern (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The U of C has a huge number of incredibly intelligent people, most of whom have a strong interest in their field and are very nice.

    Cons

    Though the people are very intelligent, they do not practice 'logical thinking' and 'human interaction' very well. There is a lot that goes wrong because everyone is thinking too far above the problem at hand.
