    Pros

    -Learning on the job and the ability to try new things.
    -New president has a good vision and the outlook of the college looks bright.
    -Fun work environment with good people that are very talented.

    Cons

    -A lot of red tape to cut through when getting things approved in the upper levels of management.
    -The industry is losing money fast, so some benefits could be stripped as budgets are tightened.
    -Reorganization of many departments has caused some uneasiness around the college. A lot of things change here on a yearly basis, so it's hard to feel consistent with your job duties.

    -Keep the great culture of Columbia College going and good things will happen.

    Pros

    Working here is nice because it feels like an extended family. There is ample opportunity for professional growth and there are celebrations for staff that include meals and recognition.

    Cons

    The health insurance benefits are expensive and coupled with the low range for salaries here, many workers are actually paid below the poverty line. Poor performance also seems to get rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please seek alternatives to health insurance costs and look into increasing salaries as much as possible. Thanks.

    Current Employee - Office Intern in Columbia, MO

    I have been working at Columbia College of Missouri as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very Convenient Parking - The maximum time needed to walk to work should not exceed 10 minutes.

    The Campus dinning hall has good value. The community can even visits the dinning hall because of the great quality for its low cost for a meal.

    Staff Events are very fun and helpful.

    Cons

    Lack of Diversity - I barely saw anyone who was not white working in offices across campus.

    Interns are used rather than developed. Interns are seen as making lives easier instead of taking the challenge to develop their skills.

    Very Hierarchical - Even if a lower ranking member may have an idea that is seen by the majority as valid, the decisions always come from the top down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider looking for increase the diversity in your offices, especially in the higher level positions.
