I worked at University of Chicago

Pros

University of Chicago is a very famous university. And Chicago city is very beautiful and a wonderful place to live in.

Cons

The neighborhood, hyde park, is not a safe place, I would not recommend you walk alone in the middle of night.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep going and make neighborhood more safe. And students on campus need more fun, not just study and research all the time.

    I worked at University of Chicago

    Pros

    Intellectual community, neighborhood oriented, lots of opportunities, congenial co-workers, beautiful campus, ability to move to different positions on campus, great students

    Cons

    low pay, the neighborhood can be dicey, transportation options to campus are limited--depending on where you live, very academic and can be a little boring

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I noticed far too many disgruntled academics who never completed their Ph.D.'s in mid-management positions. Some are wonderful at their jobs, but others breed a lot of negativity/doom/gloom that doesn't reflect that university.

    I have been working at University of Chicago

    Pros

    Very family oriented. My manager is very understanding when I have to take off due to emergencies. My manager is very fair and doesn't micromanage. The company is easily accessible from major bus and train routes

    Cons

    Hard to find parking. The University is not located in a very safe neighborhood. We often hear reports of assaults and robberies. There is a University side and a Hospital side. I would recommend applying for all jobs on the university side. The Hospital is a lot more restricted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raises greater than 3% would be greatly appreciated as well as lessening the time it takes to get a promotion approved.
