Research Specialist/Study Coordinator (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 5, 2018
I enjoyed my time immensely at University of Illinois at Chicago. I cannot say anything bad about this organization.I worked with a wonderful PI in the Department of Medicine, and she was the best at UIC!
Vacation days, gift days and the work environment
salary could have been better, parking rates are too high, not everyone can afford it.
Lab Technician (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 8, 2018
I enjoyed working here, the people, and the location were fantastic. The learning experience I had in my department was very good. They were also willing to cross-train between different labs, which is important.
Food service sanitation laborer (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 3, 2018
it was a great work experience. love being able to help others in time of need. teaches you how to prep food correctly. some managers are very helpful and understanding. some days can be very fast paced and some days can be average.
Research Associate (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 6, 2018
I am really happy that worked with UIC. I have worked on the field of machine learning and computer vision. In addition, I have experienced working on the field of image processing and wireless networking. I published 10 papers in top journal and conference papers.
Research Assistant Professor (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 21, 2018
The faculty in my department were very helpful and great mentors, but when it came to the administration, they were complete screw-ups. I was a postdoc, so I taught and did research. I can't speak as to what it would be like to work in other departments or roles.
Very slow in some departments and lots of drama between departments
Student Office Aide (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 7, 2018
I went to school here and worked here as well and I didn't like the experience for either. Working there was like being the grown up at a child's party. Most of the management has been there for 15-20+ years and don't want to change and don't understand the new systems. They rely on the students and younger workers for a lot of the work. There is a lot of undercover drama between coworkers and other departments that makes it uncomfortable to be around. The pay for your job title is not very good, especially for everything you deal with.
Driver (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 1, 2018
I drove straight truck most days. I would do a pre-inspection of vehicle and review work orders. Management was very poor,no communication between management and labor. UIC was a very cutthroat enviroment,few people wanted to actually work. the hardest part was outdated equipment and working with unmotivated people. The best part was dealing with customers.
