    I worked at Southern Illinois University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great location, good facilities, wonderful students who are often first generation college students

    Cons

    The leadership does a very poor job of communicating with the faculty, staff and students. It is very political, and many of the best faculty leave early in their career.

    Advice to Management

    Involve your faculty in the decisions.


  2. "Great work environment! Very diverse workplace with wonderful colleagues. Minimal politics."

    I worked at Southern Illinois University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great health care and on campus services (e.g., gym). Very friendly town. You will make great friends in the area.

    Cons

    You can run out of things to do in Carbondale since it is a small town and is 2hrs away from the biggest city.
