    Great place to do research, treats you really well, make sure you have all the resources to carry out your studies.

    Keep up doing a good work! Just try to fix some organizational problems which occur almost in any large institution.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at University of Illinois at Chicago full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Nice facilities for structural biochemists - NMR spectrometers, ITC and DSC calorimeters, CD, fluorescence and UV/Vis spectrometers. Good colleagues, pretty good lab spaces, and overall nice city

    Cons

    It is a big state school - the budget is cut every year or so, no new hires in years in my department, so we don't have any untenured tenure-track faculty. No real possibility for postdocs/research track faculty to upgrade

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to get the politicians to raise the funds necessary to run a world class university, including actually hiring new faculty members on a regular basis.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at University of Illinois at Chicago part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    close to public transportation and sufficient library resources.

    Cons

    Do not come here if you are a minority scientist who is non-Asian. Their School of Public Health has never hired an African American tenured track professor in its 40+ year history in their Environmental Health Sciences Division. Most schools try to hire faculty from across the country however this school tends to hire its own graduates and perpetuates its dysfunctional and discriminatory staff.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring your spouses over qualified faculty because you want to recruit one individual. How about hiring African Americans in positions other than staff.
