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

Pros

The community of people makes going to work fun. Management is always willing to teach students whatever they want to learn within their student worker position.

Cons

Not all departments communicate effectively. Works on a two week pay period, so bugdeting your money effectively is a must.

Advice to Management

Grow inter department communication

    I worked at University of Illinois at Springfield part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    All faculty and staff are so nice and accommodating. Everyone, at least in my department, was very positive and team-oriented. They were also quick to praise good work and good effort.

    Cons

    The biggest downside to UIS is how small the campus is. As a student, this can be nice, but in a work environment, you don't really get different perspectives or diversity, simply because of size.

    Advice to Management

    I would say continue to encourage student workers to go above and beyond. My experience was great, because I was able to do a lot in my time there.
