    I have been working at University of Illinois at Chicago full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Diverse and young with a bright and growing future. Many opportunities to grow professionally with so many new initiatives going on.

    Cons

    Departmental solos with a very politically charged hierarchy. Advancement often means leaving your department to go elsewhere. Salary for one job can be vastly different for the same job elsewhere on campus.

    Advice to Management

    More fairness in salary distribution and consolidate departmental overlap.

    I have been working at University of Illinois at Chicago part-time

    Pros

    Great place to work if you are interested in pursuing your masters! Some part-time positions at UIC come with a tuition waiver (if a full-time student) or allow you to take a few classes per semester (if a full-time employee).

    Cons

    UIC is a large bureaucratic system. Sometimes you may need to ask 5 different people to find the answer to your problem.
