    Good starting point, but the talented, ambitious people move on

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits package. College atmosphere can be fun. It seems like during the summer the work slows down across campus, so that is relaxing.

    ConsBudgets are tightening so everyone is expected to do more with less. It seems like a lot of people are unhappy and stressed, but are not willing or able to look for employment elsewhere. Bureaucracy stifles growth and new ideas.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Research Chemist (Current Employee)

    Review of Mizzou

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsHours are flexible, working with students is very rewarding. Students are given opportunities to gain leadership and life skills at Mizzou.

    ConsColumbia can seem very small at times, especially coming from a larger city. Shopping is limited, but food options are abundant if you look hard enough.

    Wonderful learning experience as a Reservations Ambassador at University of Missouri

    Reservations Ambassador (Former Employee)
    Columbia, MO

    ProsYour coworkers are kind. The work you are doing is very applicable to any job out of college. This job is especially great for Communication majors and students looking to get involved with event planning. The supervisors are kind as long as you don't make many mistakes. You are paid well for a student employee. My overall experience at the job was pleasant.

    ConsSupervisors can be very strict and nit-picky. I did not feel that I was given ample time to make it from work to my classes and was often late to my lectures. There isn't really any room for promotions in this position. The office culture is nice at most times but could get very tense at times as well. Can be a very overwhelming job at times if the office is busy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake into consideration the amount of hours your student employees are taking per semester and perhaps be more understanding towards their workload. Also to have enough people working there that the office does not suffer completely if someone cannot come into work.
