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

    Pros

    My coworkers were so supportive, and there was never a dull moment responding to the needs of students. Creativity was constantly flowing, and the students were so inspiring. There is great knowledge and ideas emerging from that institution

    Cons

    The pay was low, and it was extremely difficult to navigate advancement. Not to mention the budget challenges from the state

    Advice to Management

    Make better paths to advancement & pay people more, especially the cultural workers. It's an extremely diverse school, students should get the most out of that by engaging with that diversity as an asset, and the cultural centers don't have enough capacity to currently do that
