    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Staff is usually very friendly, hours are flexible to your class schedule, and work can range from mind-numbingly simple (sortig mail) to more challenging (acting as a secretary or ambassador for the university).

    Cons

    You're frozen at minimum wage, regardless of the number of years or hours you put in.

    Advice to Management

    The President of the University needs to shift her focus from growth to internal improvements. It's difficult to sell a nonexistent campus life.

    I have been working at Aurora University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice location is western suburbs
    Great student base

    Cons

    University is always in a state of flux. Organizational change and restructuring happens on a major level every 8 to 10 months.
    Pay is much less that public universities.
    Parking is a nightmare. No preference for faculty.

    Advice to Management

    Read the cons above.
