Pros

flexible work time, easy to commute if you live in Hyde Park, convenient transportation to downtown Chicago. free gym access as a graduate student.

Cons

depending on the specific principal investigator, the work load can be too much. little leisure time. as they say, this is "where fun comes to die". true story.

    I worked at University of Chicago full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Location in the City is great

    Cons

    HR is terrible, there is no direction throught the entire university. No definable vision, no real plan of getting anywhere. If I could submit zero stars I would.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a plan that does more than use flowery terms and lip service. Action, Action, Action.

    They are pretty lenient and you work with some of the sharpest minds. I enjoyed my time there because it allowed me to gain skills without too much pressure

    Cons

    Sometimes there was not enough to do. i sometimes had to make my own things do and occupy my time. Sometimes pushing paper

    Advice to Management

    Give them more to do to work
