    I have been working at Indiana University full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules to fit your classes, opportunity to collaborate with other departments and schools and learn on the go. Another plus is being able to do a real-time UX job while still pursuing your education.

    Cons

    One of the biggest cons would be the two week gap between work weeks and the Kuali time keeper system

    Advice to Management

    The payments could be made at the end of the work week or the following Monday. Also the Kuali time system could be upgraded to make clocking in hours easier for students.

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

    Pros

    Transparent salaries, generous paid time off for professional staff, good health insurance options, many great co-workers

    Cons

    Raises almost always limited to cost of living, lot of bureaucratic games (especially with central and unit HR)

    Advice to Management

    Have faster and better updates for job applicants on the status of the hiring process. Don't curtail hours for support staff to avoid giving benefits and then ask them to work twice as hard. Treat people like you would want to be treated. Al employees should earn enough to cover basic living expenses.

    I have been working at Indiana University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of resources to do chemistry.

    Cons

    Graduate students isolate themselves and do not talk to anyone. Students are bitter bringing others down around them and faculty laugh about it. Since I've been here 16 staff have left to get out of the chemistry department. Not a supportive environment and there is a lot of tension. Bad teaching labs.

    Advice to Management

    Choose another chemistry graduate program.
