Other Southern Illinois University Carbondale Employee Reviews
Job Work/Life Balance
Difficult State, complicated and extensive problems at University
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Carbondale, IL – May 24, 2018
SIU Carbondale used to be the premiere employer in southern Illinois for many decades. The state economy, continually decreasing enrollments, no raises since July 2013, and mass exodus of employees who are not replaced, amongst other administrative issues, all lead to uncertainty about its future.
There are many great people. The campus and surrounding community is beautiful. It has been a great place to raise a family.
Graduate Programs Assistant (Former Employee) – Carbondale, IL – May 22, 2018
SIU's GA (Graduate Assistant) program is a great way to learn practical skills that aren't necessarily always taught in the classroom and fund your further education. Not only do you learn the technical aspects of the job functions, but also how the are realistically applied. The staff is fun and understanding if you need help.
Great hours, no weekends, pays graduate school tuition
