    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

    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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
