A very good experience.

Graduate Assistant (Former Employee)
Bloomington, IL (US)

I worked at Illinois State full-time for more than a year

ProsWas given the necessary guidance to develop both professionally and personally. Furthermore, the culture is great.

ConsThe only con to working at Illinois State is the low pay. I don't know if I would consider this a con because the cost of living in the area is relatively inexpensive.
