"I worked for the UIUC Office of Grants and Contracts for nine years. Generally, I found the work fascinating and learned a great deal about federal, state and private awards. I gained new and/or improved skills through in-house training, seminars, webinars and online classes. The management style of the office is extremely hierarchical. If not on the management team, there's very little opportunity to contribute to conversations and decisions affecting the office and the work done."
