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

    Pros

    Diverse opportunities Great network Research assistant positions are easy to find Student employment website is easy to navigate No payroll issues

    Cons

    Pay scale for students is standardized, so there is little room for negotiation. It is much easier to get jobs in certain departments than others, but this is expected of any University. If you are not interested in research or in administrative tasks, finding a job may be difficult.

    If you're ok with following the status quo and kiss up to management you'll do fine.

    I worked at University of Chicago full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    All things considered, the benefits package is spectacular

    Cons

    It wasn't a place that welcomed change and innovation. New ideas were constantly rejected and I never felt like I could really contribute to my team. Promotions were solely based on how much management liked you, not merit, which became incredibly frustrating. Management also isn't the best at fostering professional development. I couldn't grow the way I wanted to grow here.
