    I worked at IUPUI full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great me benefits (medical, dental insurances and tution reimbursement).
    A Union to protect employees

    Cons

    Hires Supervisors based on nepotism
    Understaffed in the department
    Less mobility for promotions
    Toxic work environment
    FMLA regulations do not match with federal and state regulations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should equal amount of staff for each shift in order to complete work,
    Give more people an opportunity for promotions based on their work ethnics and professionalism than on nepotism.
    Also, there should be background checks on supervisors to ensure they are suited to train newly hired employees

    I have been working at IUPUI part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    IUPUI has nice facilities, cancer center and some top notch investigators. Good efforts to provide opportunities for good work-life balance.

    Cons

    As a faculty member for the past 6 years, I do not feel particularly valued at IUPUI. There are problems with pay equity among departments and for women. Part-time employees have inadequate health/retirement benefits. Primary focus is how much money you are bringing in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Using a business model to run the university research program will harm innovation and kill morale.

  11. Great environment, great people, crippling bureaucracy, out of touch leadership

    I worked at IUPUI full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There's a lot of talent on the campus and some very important and interesting work being done.

    Cons

    State cuts to education have made money scarce. Anything that brings in money is fairly safe (research). Anything that doesn't, will get squeezed (anything student related).

    IU/IUPUI is a huge bureaucracy with deep political divisions. If you're hired into a group that's along one of those fault lines or which has become a political football, it can be a miserable experience working there.

    In the bigger divisions, those working with the students or in daily operations are prevented from making strategic decisions through official channels due to the crippling bureaucracy around them. The only people able to initiate meaningful change are so high up in the organization that they're isolated from daily operations and student life. So change happens in secret or out of nowhere from well-intentioned, but often, out of touch leadership.

    Many divisions that face and support the students are treated as a necessary evil that's drawing valuable resources away from research.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flatten the organizational charts. Eliminate unnecessary procedures (the forms committee?). Get to know a few students and a few people that work with them.
