Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Great people (up to the middle-administrative level, the higher-ups seem out of touch), lively idea-driven environment.

Cons

Low salary, mainly pretty ugly campus.

Advice to Management

Stop hiring more administrators and invest in faculty - they're the ones the students come for.

    I have been working at University of Illinois at Chicago part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people, classes are small (for the graduate students), diverse group of educators, many PI choices.

    Cons

    If you are not a self-starter then you may feel a little lost - not necessarily a con for me.

    Advice to Management

    Additional departmental group projects and collaboration would help strengthen our program and elevate the prestige of our department - strength (e.g., posters and presentations showing interdisciplinary collaboration successfully).
