Great benefits but it took a long time to move up the ladder and acquire decent pay.
Pros: Benefits, free tuition, nice environment
Cons: Work load can be exhausting at times
NIU is overall a really great place to work. Most everyone is friendly and helpful, no matter what it is you need. I like the fact that there are people from diverse backgrounds (all over the world, actually) who are fun to talk with and extraordinarily interesting. There is so much knowledge to gain from the variety of classes offered, as I earned my degree here as well while working full time. One of the great benefits is that if you're a full time employee, tuition is basically free. The only difficult part of my job is that sometimes, when the semester is in full swing, office life can be a bit stressful and tense. Other than that, NIU is a great place to work!
