    Supportive and educational place to work at the Graham Clinical Performance Center

    Current Employee - Standardized Patient

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

    Pros

    The staff and management at the UIC -GCPC are all current or former theater artists. As such they are supportive and creative while providing good technical insight into the cases we have to portray. They are organized and easy to work with. I'd recommend working here to anyone who wants fulfilling part-time work during the school year.

    Cons

    Once you're scheduled for a job, you're expected to work it. These are not positions that can be canceled at the last minute if you have an audition. This is not the ideal job for actors who frequently get calls from their agents for last minute auditions. It's also part-time work with very little opportunity for advancement to full-time -- which I believe is actually a credit to the center because everyone who works there seems to be happy and won't be leaving their job any time soon.

    Pros

    Nice benefit package. Benefits are second to none.

    Favoritism, corruption, red-tape. Everybody in high positions knows someone influential who helped them hack the HR "preventative" measures.

    I worked at University of Illinois at Chicago

    Pros

    Several labs have funding, hence many options to choose from in terms of research topics and labs. University is known in the area, hence can help in terms of job prospects. But other universities in Chicago such as Northwestern and University of Chicago are far better

    Cons

    HR is very inefficient, slow process of getting into the system for new hires. The location for Medical School is not great, close to areas with high crime rate, lower retention rate for postdocs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upgrade the management, please make sure the PIs who run the lab are competent over time

    Excellent salary and benefits
    Day shift, no weekends or holidays
    Civil Service and union status

    Cons

    Lack of leadership and direction

    Small pay raises
    Employees not monitored for work performance, lack of performance reviews

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage staff to get additional training in their field, attend classes, seminars, etc. Include employees in leadership decisions and/or communicate more thoroughly changes being implemented. Review leadership and managers for performance improvement and terminate the employment of those who have shown no improvements in their department.
