    It was great experience

    Former Employee - Marketing Coordinator in Columbia, MO
    Former Employee - Marketing Coordinator in Columbia, MO

    I worked at University of Missouri as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I did an internship for the Women's Volleyball team. It was good marketing experience, learning to build plans scratch and working with a diverse team. My boss was great.

    Cons

    It was unpaid. I was forced to work with a person who actively worked against me at every turn. It was a lesson on how to work with people I guess

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider some base compensation. I had to get a second job to make some money that summer because the internship was unpaid.

    Good pay for first job, really laid back environment, cool bosses, flexible schedule, tutoring is really fun and awesome

    Cons

    Not enough hours, students cancel very often so don't make as much money as you are scheduled to, tutoring can be kind of a pain in the butt some days

    Collegial, collaborative, friendly, flexible, Columbia is a vibrant and diverse city in an otherwise conservative landscape

    I worked at University of Missouri part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employers worked around class schedules very well. I worked for 4 years in different IT departments and all were well ran for the given resources.

    Cons

    During the beginning and end of semesters it is a madhouse almost everywhere. Especially being a student while working can really stretch a person thin.

    Pros

    I had flexible hours and a great boss. The work environment was pleasant with computer access and plenty of resources.

    Cons

    The only con that I can think of with my experience working for University of Missouri was that the pay was significantly less than if I had done the work freelance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing what you are doing.
