      Pros

      Benefits .. PTO when you can take it

      Cons

      Continued issues with work life balance. IU is cutting costs by eliminating lines while expecting more, particularly from IT in UITS. Leadership expects more with less, and many employees are fed up with the culture that work is often work first. While emails about balance are sent out z it's blatantly obvious how little the folks doing the work are valued. The hypocrisy is sad, particularly when it comes to training, taking pto etc. While managers in some areas are great, there's definitely an issue at higher levels where leadership fails to recognize the expertise nor respect input from their workers.
