    Former Employee - Internet Lab Developer in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Illinois Institute of Technology as a contractor (less than an 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.

    Pros

    University setting has its benefits with free access to gym and multiple restaurants on campus. Good wifi and library facilities. City setting - Lots of things to do over the weekend. University setting makes it a nice international cultural setting with inclusion of ALL.

    Cons

    Given that IIT is primarily an engineering school, the education department does not get enough promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wish the insurance benefits would be available to graduate research/teaching assistants instead of the student insurance which does not cover much.
