I have been working at Illinois State part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great benefits compared to most employment opportunities.
Most people you work with are great, and because the teams are usually small, you get very close.

Cons

In turn for great benefits, pay is usually less than the average for that job.
IT Management is poor at making decisions for the long term, and thus have caused many developers to seek employment elsewhere.

Advice to Management

Not everyone that is a great employee will be a great manager. A manager, however, should have experience in the job they are managing.

    I have been working at Illinois State part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -School comes first so getting time off is/was easy.
    -Worked around my schedule.
    -Allowed time off during finals or project deadlines for classes
    -Easy work. They expect students to not have experience but I had years of actual job experience.
    -Summer/weekends off.
    -Studied during downtime (depends on where you work)
    -Friendly coworkers. Really casual environment.
    -Dress code is casual for student workers or business casual for interns.
    -Low stress.
    -Management very easy to talk to and understanding.

    Cons

    -Low pay. Min wage for students, higher for interns/grad assistants but nothing livable.
    -State funding might restrict how much you can work if you want more hours. Not ISU's fault, just a heads up.

    Advice to Management

    Let people know when bad things happen (lack of raises, ect) it is not ISU's fault. It is state funding.
