Current Employee - Graduate Student Researcher in Urbana, IL

I have been working at University of Illinois full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Decent salary and very good benefits, especially health insurance for individuals and the family. Friendly and helpful people to work with, including supervisors. Cost of living makes the area very affordable.

Cons

Still is a huge bureaucracy. Getting answers to questions sometimes takes a huge amount of time. Turn around on expenses can be long and the paperwork (as well as online) is annoyingly cumbersome. The state of Illinois finances is atrocious and the pension benefits are being gutted.

Doesn't Recommend
