    I worked at University of Illinois at Springfield full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    All the faculty were extremely professional and very interested in advancing the students and programs. They worked very hard for their students and advocating for them. All staff were easy to get along with and helpful

    Cons

    Administration somewhat disorganized. The university experienced a lot of turnover in Administration while I was there. There was not continuity with information this imitated and inter organizational communication was poor. Not a lot of community outreach

    Advice to Management

    It would be good to have a director of communication and someone that would over see the website and continuity of information
