    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at University of Illinois at Chicago part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Pay arrives on time. Friendly environment. People help each other out. Very diverse working group which helps in growth.

    Cons

    Not much growth opportunity. Requires a lot of patience. It is a long term investment. And perks are not much. One can't go much higher in job position and salary.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Management would be to give better opportunity to employees to grow and flourish. And provide more incentives.

    I have been working at University of Illinois at Chicago part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent intellectual culture; diverse campus; Chicago's largest public research university; community engagement; centrally located in the heart of Chicago; community of socially and politically engaged learners.

    Cons

    Teaching assistant stipends can be difficult in meeting the cost of living in Chicago. Healthcare and dental benefits can be difficult to utilize without guidance.

    Advice to Management

    Protect the faculty and professional integrity of the university's mission in the face of constraining bureaucratic and budgetary limitations.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    People around are very helpful, but not very highly efficient. But generally it's a good place to start the career.

    Cons

    Most of the principle investigators don't have any money, so it's hard and competent to stay in the same place forever.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully everything can be more efficient in the future. Most of the time it takes forever to get one task processed.
