I really liked the staff and the students that enrolled in the classes. The students were a mix of graduate students, alumni, and professors. Everybody was friendly and really wanting to learn proper Pilates.

if leadership likes you, you get promoted and raises, if they don't, hold grudges, keep you from being promoted, don't try to develop people, hold themselves to different standards, so much corruption it is sickening

The university was a fun place to work with plenty of activities on and around campus. The group itself was close knit and a pleasure to work for. Benefits were spectacular.

I was a student employee for 4 years. They were very accommodating in adjusting my work schedule around class schedules and study requirements. Pay won't be union rate, but it's a good source of income to offset some of the costs of paying for school.

During field season, we are always out on Lake Michigan gathering samples or along the Illinois shoreline interviewing fishermen. I have learned so much already, from invertebrate and vertebrate identification, and other various aging techniques of yellow perch. The hardest part of the job can be the long and early hours, but the amazing experiences are worth it.

Loved the U of I! I only left because of pursuit of completing my undergrad and graduate degrees. I still stay in contact with my colleagues and think of them as extended family.

Great place to work overall. You have a lot of freedom to bring your work experience with you and make a job your own. There is a lot of flexibility with your time off.

Good: Super benefits, interesting work, incredibly large community, meet people from all over the world, lots of raises.
Bad: All of the research jobs run out of time and money eventually. No way to transition into new research.
