    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.
