    Student Technician

    Student IT Technician (Former Employee)
    Normal, IL

    ProsThe position gives you a lot of insight into the behind the scenes operations of the University. Flexible work schedule works around your classes and any tests/homework you need to catch up on.

    ConsProfessional development is minimal in the position. The workload is more than the size of the staff can handle, so at times it feels like you're fighting just to not move further behind.

    Good place to work, but a bit insulated

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Normal, IL

    ProsLots of nice people; chance to help students in their futures and help develop the next generation. Good benefits.

    ConsParking is very difficult on campus. And the people tend to be isolated in the sense that outsiders often have a hard time overcoming their status as outsiders. There is a definite preference to go with folks who are "local" to ISU.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more willing to hire folks outside of ISU.
