      Great 403b retirement account benefits. Laid back environment. Lots of time off. They promote from within. Wonderful Chicago-based institution.

      Not as great as it used to be

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good benefits, tuition reimbursement. Great work colleagues (but that depends on department), lots of opportunities for professional development. Good paid time off.

      Cons

      Administration does not seem to care about staff and there has been major overload of work and burnout with no changes. Reduction in our benefits and no raises due to the pandemic. Low staff moral. Students are not happy either which makes the job hard and emotionally taxing.
