    Pros

    IIT is a university with vast potential. I loved my time there. Typically a very pleasant work environment. Lots to do, easy to be a shining star for the shamefully rare dedicated worker. Depending on where you and what you do, the workload is probably do-able.

    Cons

    High level leadership is mediocre. There's plenty of employees that take advantage of the relaxed work environment, which ultimately means when things need to get done there's only a few people willing and able to do it. As in all universities, it is difficult to navigate the muddy waters of bureaucracy. There will be a lack of advancement potential, no matter where you land.

    Advice to Management

    To the senior management specifically: take the time and to assess/reassess your work pool. There are many entrenched employees out there that are bringing your university down. Don't be so afraid of cutting the fat. Hire new people and support them with competitive salaries, update policies and work flow.

    Pros

    Got to meet some of the greatest people during my years as being a Resident Adviser. Increased my leadership and communication skills. It pays for both room and board ($10,000+ value) making IIT a bit affordable for someone without scholarships. Got to meet some of the best leaders (RHDs) I've known.

    Cons

    Minimal organization among the other Resident Advisers and Residence Hall Directors at times. Sometimes you will be over worked depending on how well your floor gets along. To avoid this problem have the residents of your floor interact on a regular basis.

    Advice to Management

    Create a plan and be consistent with it for the years to come. Strengthen the RHD team (increase salary maybe so they stay for more than 2 years)

    Pros

    Really nice people to work with. Exposure to all levels of hierarchy is recommendable. Engaging projects to work on or contribute towards.

    Cons

    There are lesser number of people and the tasks in hand are too many. Many valuable resources gets wasted as no one is able to monitor or have control over all the resources.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and designate certain responsibilities in the initial phases of them working. Provide more benefits to those who are working.

    Short hours, it may happen that you may need another part time job in order to facilitate your financial needs. Although, this place is a great place to work for.

    Pros

    It was a good school with a small department and lots of focus on the students. It was easy to get one-on-one time with the professors

    Cons

    Some of the professors did not speak english very well. This made it difficult to understand some obtuse topics. Also no social life.

    Advice to Management

    The departments seem well run, but the lack of a social life on campus also sucks. Spending more money on activities for students instead of building crazy buildings. Also rooma nd board is too expensive.
