Values stuff over human resources

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at University of Wyoming full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe university is well-resourced in comparison to peer institutions because of the mineral wealth in the state (this changes when prices plummet). The size of the university is nice, and it's possible to make connections across disciplinary, departmental, and college lines. In general, the faculty is full of smart, talented people who want to do good work. It's possible to stand out here and make a name for yourself because it's a small pond.

ConsThe community is small and insular, and it can be very challenging to enjoy living in this small town. Th university has not been able to hire adequate faculty and staff, even with very high operating budgets, so faculty and staff are stressed. There is a culture of trying to purchase "out of the box" solutions instead of building good systems that actually work for students and employees. While the people here generally mean well, there is resistance to change and we lack a culture of creativity and innovation.
