    I worked at Illinois Institute of Technology as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    good very friendly i like the environment
    Young Management, So they have a liberal attitude towards common problems faced by fresh graduates. Training is done by professionals with at-least 5 years of Experience in the required field. Pay-Stub is very good and getting paid on time makes it even sweeter. Absolutely NO-Contract and absence of other such mandatory time-bound commitments

    Cons

    no cons Excellent service outstanding experience. I am pleased to say that pro-tek did a great job for me in recruiting for a position which was challenging to fill. The employees at Pro-Tek consulting were helpful, knowledgeable and friendly and walked us step by step through the procedures that needed to take place. I am so grateful to them and look forward to continuing to work with Pro-Tek in the future. They helped job seekers like me to move forward with the career.

    I have been working at Illinois Institute of Technology as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is nice, there's free lunch most times and you get to take time off if you really have to without having to do extra hours.

    Cons

    Not a great fit for a core programmer. If you're looking to work on developing software, look somewhere else. Here, you manage existing software for the most part.

    I have been working at Illinois Institute of Technology as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    They have nice volley ball and tennis courts, table tennis, places to sit outside.

    Cons

    My lab mates can't speak English. Advisor does not give enough time to students. I see people from each country get together and speak their native language, which is completely fine, but when it happens in the lab environment, and when this stands a barrier between communicating between each other, then it is a problem. This is a graduate program and foreign students should have passed GRE and TOEFL. They should possess great communication skills at this level, but sadly this is not the case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Students should speak English. Yes, students can speak their language when they are outside the class room, but when there is interacting in lab environment, I have the right to understand what is going on. Also, advisors should give more time to students and train them, especially the new ones.
