    Pros

    I love working for Indiana University, we get great networking opportunities and chances to move up!

    Cons

    Sometimes, for me, it is hard to log my hours through the system that my employer uses, but it all works out in the end!

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advice to management, I think that they are doing a great job with everything and do a lot of work for our program.

    I have been working at Indiana University

    Pros

    I review contracts for the university. The work environment is great and I enjoy my coworkers. Can't beat the benefits. Professional atmosphere.

    Cons

    Reorganization happens frequently. When reorganized, several tiers of upper management occurred. What was once a small office grew to a much larger office with more burocracy.

    Advice to Management

    Things have calmed down a lot since the reorganization(s). It would be nice to receive more than 2 percent raises and that merit raises were more common.

    Supportive of continuing education, work life balance, family friendly. Technology is great and lots of opportunity for development.

    Some employees take the laid-back culture too far and are not as productive as they could be.

    Hire and develop from within IU system whenever possible.
