Its a good place either to start or finish!
Postdoc (Former Employee), Chicago, ILApril 22, 2015
Pros: commutable to city, ethics, quality work
Cons: some shady areas, empty streets on holidays
The work life depends on who you work with, specially in research labs. It is always good to find an ex-employee to get an insight. Once tenure-tracked benefits surely are a plus.

drab university with unenthusiastic students
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), Chicago, ILApril 19, 2015
As a graduate student, I am frustrated by the lack of enthusiasm of the undergraduates for the courses I TA, and the lack of campus culture as most students commute. The funding situation is also unfortunate.

Project Coordinator (Former Employee), Chicago, ILApril 4, 2015
I enjoyed getting to know the visa process through this job. There is just something about working with internationals that felt fulfilling. I also somewhat enjoyed writing job descriptions. My co-workers were great, as was my supervisor. It taught me a lot about the HR process at the university level.

Diverse and Innovative Academic World
Project Manager (Former Employee), Chicago, ILMarch 21, 2015
Pros: benefits
Cons: visiting positions are not permanent
Many opportunities for growth and development if you work in the right department with the right people.

I learned that navigating your way through an environment with a lot of bureaucracy and red tape requires patience and follow through.

The hardest part of the job is expanding oneself outside of one's own unit. The work can sometimes bog you down. Although it can be an intense working environment, I find that working with a great team is very productive and satisfying.

Rewarding experience
Human Performance Lab Training Assistant (Current Employee), Chicago, ILMarch 10, 2015
Pros: never a boring environment.
Cons: not competitive with other salaries of similar positions.
To be able to work with the students that went though the same Kinesiology program is very rewarding and gives you a full circle experience of learning and teaching.

Declining Standards

University where the standards are rapidly declining and academic inflation is a fact of life. Amid the low standards many high level researchers work, providing in contrast high level of post graduate education.

UIC Research
Research Assistant Professor (Former Employee), ChicagoFebruary 17, 2015
Although UIC is not a top tier university, it does boast some good resources for research and a large medical school. Attracting top colleagues and students is difficult, and this can be limiting.

Workplace chaos!
Communications Switchboard Operator (Former Employee), Chicago, ILFebruary 9, 2015
Pros: income brought in during my time of need
Cons: lazy employees, unporfessional manager, rude and inconsiderate staff members
The duties were not bad; however, union employees took advantage of extra help workers. Calls were constantly rerouted by other employees to less seasoned staff members and as a result, good employees became burned out. The immediate manager constantly covered up inappropriate behavior by chosen staff members such as: tardiness, not answering calls, or sleeping on the job in order to make himself appear like a good manager. The supervisors were nice and approachable; however, the manager did not advocate for extra help employees when we received less pay and did most of the work which was evident when computer generated reports were released.

Its a fun work place. Pretty flexible work time for full time students who work part time in my department.
Graduate Assistant (Current Employee), Chicago, ILFebruary 2, 2015
This is a great place to work. All the colleagues are very kind and helpful. The most important thing is your boss understands that you are a full time student and you your first priority is studies. So they allow flexible timings at work.
