A good big univercity
Visiting Research Specialist (Current Employee), Chicago, ILNovember 11, 2015
Can't tell much about the univercity as a whole, since it's too big. The College of Pharmacy is ranked #14 in the category Best Colleges Rankings by U.S. News and World Report. The department of Medicinal Chemistry where I'm currently working is a very nice place with good working atmosphere.
It's not a real job, it's postoctoral practice, to be precise.

Event Staff - Student Attendant (Former Employee), Chicago, ILSeptember 2, 2015
Management was extremely nice and supportive to all of the student workers. Typical days included setting up and hosting large events in the UIC Forum. I learned how to work with a team of fellow students in order to cater to the ever changing needs of a wide array of clients.

The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work with good friends on a regular basis, in order to achieve a common goal. The most taxing part of the job was taking everything down again, reorganizing, then setting up for a new event, after a very long day.
