    I worked at University of Illinois at Chicago full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Small project groups working on cancer, Alzheimer's, etc. Quite work place, with ample scope to overlap in multiple projects. Especially good when one has a career change in mind to core cellular and molecular biology techniques and biomedical sciences research.

    Cons

    Pretty isolated location. Very limited opportunities in bio-related jobs in the neighborhood. Also, employee tuition benefits though applicable, but might be hard to avail as not many courses would be available in that small setup.

    Pros

    Located near my home.

    Cons

    Completely unprofessional management at the HIAC AIDS clinic. Inappropriate boundaries between the management staff, and the clients. The MOST inappropriate standards that I have EVER experienced in a work environment. Unethical regarding compliance with the state standards for the program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start over, with a new professionally trained management team.
