Fantastic place to work
General Office Assistant (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJune 24, 2015
Pros: work hours were ideal
Cons: none
I organized student’s records. The work environment was ideal. I learned that education is a business as well as a place of learning.
My management was eager to teach me. Registration periods were possibly the hardest part of this job, however working as a team helped.

Fast-paced active workplace
Print Lab Assistant (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJune 1, 2015
A typical day involved ensuring that the print lab ran as smoothly as possible.Everyday tasks included helping students print, check out equipment, and troubleshooting their issues. As technical problems came up I was charged with the task of troubleshooting and repairing them if possible. The most enjoyable part of this job was the interaction with the people who came into the print lab, everyday there was a new student coming in, giving me the opportunity to work with numerous students in any given day.

Postdoc (Former Employee), Chicago, ILApril 22, 2015
Pros: commutable to city, ethics, quality work
Cons: some shady areas, empty streets on holidays
The work life depends on who you work with, specially in research labs. It is always good to find an ex-employee to get an insight. Once tenure-tracked benefits surely are a plus.

drab university with unenthusiastic students
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), Chicago, ILApril 19, 2015
As a graduate student, I am frustrated by the lack of enthusiasm of the undergraduates for the courses I TA, and the lack of campus culture as most students commute. The funding situation is also unfortunate.

Diverse and Innovative Academic World
Project Manager (Former Employee), Chicago, ILMarch 21, 2015
Pros: benefits
Cons: visiting positions are not permanent
Many opportunities for growth and development if you work in the right department with the right people.

I learned that navigating your way through an environment with a lot of bureaucracy and red tape requires patience and follow through.

The hardest part of the job is expanding oneself outside of one's own unit. The work can sometimes bog you down. Although it can be an intense working environment, I find that working with a great team is very productive and satisfying.
