    I have been working at University of Illinois at Springfield part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    great schedule because of the academic year, current boss is not a micromanager, benefits are good I hear, the parking is not bad as it is a smaller campus, you get to know a lot of people from that too

    Cons

    Rather small for a university

    Pros

    The community of people makes going to work fun. Management is always willing to teach students whatever they want to learn within their student worker position.

    Cons

    Not all departments communicate effectively. Works on a two week pay period, so bugdeting your money effectively is a must.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow inter department communication

    Pros

    It's a small university. They free tuition to employees so it's easy to get your master's without the financial burden. Most people are kind. The current chancellor is looking for growth within the university which is good.

    Cons

    Management not versed in managing. It appears the longer you are there you can be promoted regardless of your ability to lead. Rouge management. Skill hording so that some people are invaluable regardless of there toxic behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees.

    Pros

    Good area. Low expenses and cheap houses.

    Cons

    Need better administrators! They tend to hire someone they know instead of the best person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just sit in your office. Do something.
