    I worked at IUPUI full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Inexpensive living in a big city with all restaurants, theaters sometimes within walking distance if you live downtown.
    - It is possible to live downtown without breaking a bank and in apartments close to definition of luxury.
    - Good work conditions and benefits. Salaries are matching the price of living (not high).

    Cons

    Salaries matching the price of living (not high !). The line in your CV will not automatically excite next employer (nothing close to Harvard or Stanford), but that is dependent on specific lab.

    I have been working at IUPUI full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, clean work environment, offers some training for career advancement. Growing campus that is always creating new opportunities.

    Cons

    Some disconnect between different groups when involved in larger scale projects. Parking is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more proactive environment, there are some roadblocks that do not enable individuals to move up based on experience. The thought process of "You're not qualified for this position, you will have to leave here to gain experience and come back." should not be the mindset we should have. Hiring within should be a priority

    I have been working at IUPUI part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours to work with student schedule
    Fair pay for a student job
    Very knowledgeable staff
    Welcoming staff

    Cons

    Maximum 29 hours logged per week
    Have to deal with university spending rules in terms of vendors and stores
    Redoing what students do wrong the first time

    Advice to Management

    Giving student workers leadership rolls in their departments is fantastic and empowering. Always have more than one person working in a department, though, because a person without anyone there to take their position can feel trapped like they cannot go search for a career somewhere else, which is the end goal isn't it?
