Pros

University of Chicago is a very famous university. And Chicago city is very beautiful and a wonderful place to live in.

Cons

The neighborhood, hyde park, is not a safe place, I would not recommend you walk alone in the middle of night.

Advice to Management

Keep going and make neighborhood more safe. And students on campus need more fun, not just study and research all the time.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Very family oriented. My manager is very understanding when I have to take off due to emergencies. My manager is very fair and doesn't micromanage. The company is easily accessible from major bus and train routes

    Cons

    Hard to find parking. The University is not located in a very safe neighborhood. We often hear reports of assaults and robberies. There is a University side and a Hospital side. I would recommend applying for all jobs on the university side. The Hospital is a lot more restricted.

    Advice to Management

    Raises greater than 3% would be greatly appreciated as well as lessening the time it takes to get a promotion approved.

    Pros

    UC provides opportunities to work with many brilliant and inspiring people, including many from diverse backgrounds and from other countries. The university's name also carries a lot of weight- more so as you get farther away from Chicago. Campus is historic and beautiful.

    Cons

    Inconvenient and sometimes dangerous location, constant turf wars, incompetent career administrators, no consequences for unethical behavior by managers and physicians, lack of pathways to advancement for most staff, culture of individual achievement, poor compensation, inadequate staff parking, most openings are only posted publicly as a formality.
    Staff education benefits are laughable for a university.

    Advice to Management

    Stop restructuring every two years, make salaries competitive, and address the nepotism issue.
    The lack of advancement and education pathways for staff is disgraceful.
