Office Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 1, 2013
The day is comfortable. There are dead lines but organization makes them easy to accomplish. Management is consistent and helpful. Coworkers are motivated and energetic. Hardest part of the job is turning away students who don't meet the criteria. I most enjoy when a student is accepted to college and is prepared to complete their chosen course of study.
Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 21, 2017
The intra-office communication was terrible and most upper management lack initiative to actually do anything; passed off tasks to people with already too much on their plates. Would ask indirectly to have something done and then pass the blame on someone else.

Looking back, as an alumni of UIC, it is an excellent place to study and work. The people are amazing, the faculty and staff are amazing and city is amazing. As a student, Chicago is one of the best places to be.
Productive workplace, balanced time between being a teaching assistant and conducting graduate-level research
Graduate Research Assistant and Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 7, 2017
Built-in system of balances ensures students don't take too many courses to efficiently function as a teaching assistant or research assistant. During my time at UIC, my time was balanced between being a teaching assistant/research assistant and conducting my own graduate-level research prior to defending my Ph.D thesis.

I enjoy the variety of students that come through the program. I enjoy being challenged. I have improved my communication skills greatly during my time at UIC. I have one of the best bosses I could ever ask for. He is supportive, encouraging, and challenges me to continue to grow professionally.

Spent two years working and the culture is open and radical in thought. Public programs vary but always connect to social justice and issues. they are the most enjoyable part of the center and their management is not perfect but is highly efficient.
Clinical Research Coordinator (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 24, 2017
This University provides several learning opportunities. Room for advancement is limited and something you must seek out for yourself. Mentors are not very easy to come by. Overall, UIC is a nice place to work.
