    I worked at University of Illinois at Chicago full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The Technology was great, and so was the fact that I got to implement it as I saw fit. Getting to attend Budget Planning Meetings with Directors and decide the IT Budget was great. Purchasing equipment was great.

    Cons

    Most of the people were nice, but 25% had dark hidden agendas, and went out of their way to make everything difficult for those trying to do things right. Even goung so far as to threaten people with dismissal if they would not undermine the efforts of others. I wish the system here would allow me to enter the correct dates for this job. I haven't worked since due to stress related medical issues. A nice job gone awry.

    Advice to Management

    When Management allows people to behave badly it can ruin the perfect job for everyone. Most people there were nice, but those who were not ruined it for everyone.
