    Pros

    The best thing about working there is you are not over supervised.

    Cons

    The con is there uniform regulation. even if it is gold they won't allow you to wear long sleeves unless it is mid-October.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get someone involved that knows more about public safety and police work.

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

    Pros

    location of the university to public transportation, lots of green space on campus, many events on campus, sense of energy and excitement growing

    Cons

    General sense of complacency among most faculty. For a technical school, technology is rather outdated or in poor condition. Low minimum required stipend for PhD students (doesn't change or increase as you transition from student to full-time researcher) and definitely doesn't keep up with rental inflation).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the red tape

    Former Employee - Assistant Director in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Illinois Institute of Technology full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I met several very talented colleagues who ultimately became my friends and I gained experience managing up to terrible management.

    Cons

    Sexism, racism, and grade-school favoritism are rampant. People are promoted based on whether they are married or not and whether they suck up to the right manager, but rarely based on their talents or skills. Those who are less threatening to management are either generally ignored or promoted beyond their capabilities. Those who are assertive are belittled and ultimately driven out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior university management will change this summer; the new administration should take this opportunity to clean house in Institutional Advancement.
