Student jobs are willing to accommodate students schedules but do not give students a voice to create change. Great way to earn some cash while in school.
Pros
Flexible Schedule
Cons
Low pay

The administration honestly didn't care at all about the undergrad students, grad students/works, or faculty (especially adjuncts). I worked as a teaching assistant and our union had to go on strike to attempt to get a living wage. For the amount of work they got out of us...yeesh. They treated you like garbage. Your individual department/faculty members were a different story so this is a review of working at UIC due to the administration, not any particular department

Good place to grow as a faculty member if you have support. There is a pathway toward upward mobility but will need inside support to carefully navigate the politics across the campus .

UIC functions as a cohesive department that gives all the resources it can to its department heads and that trickles down to the TAs. They work as most Universities do.

This employer sells jobs. Administration is unqualified and unethical. Management prefers hiring man and pays woman lower salary than man. I was following home and my car tires slashed. They tried to fire me and used the university police officer to harass me at home.

This was my second experience working at UIC and like previously enjoyed it much.
The academic staff are visionaries, appreciative of diversity, sharing of knowledge, inclusive and urges the best from you.

Sleepmed runs the sleep center which means very low compensation, horrible benefits, and no retirement. The equipment does not work half of the time, you will not know your schedule until a day before the next month. There is no room for advancement or growth. The tech to patient ration is 3:1

Great facility but difficult to find parking. As a student, the faculty was easy to deal with it but trying to navigate the school's 15 websites was a nightmare.

Worst work culture I’ve experienced in 10 plus years of employment.

There is job security, likely because they cannot find exceptional employees willing to put up with the organization- wide culture of disrespect.

New manager did not understand how to mange.Had turtles in the office and wanted staff to accommodate the pets. Turned lights down for the turtles. Was not able to train new staff because shows not qualified. Ws very difficult to learn job. Manager was never at work until end of the day then would want to talk before the end of shift. Poor work environment, lack of training.
