    I worked at University of Missouri

    Pros

    Comparable pay.
    They leave you alone most of the time, which can be good or bad, depending on whether you know what you're doing or not...

    Cons

    There are way too many people involved in every decision, and as office support you're never sure if a decision has been approved by the right people. There is next to no explanation about appropriate channels, and you will quite frequently end up getting angry phone calls or emails from people you didn't even know existed.
    Next to no job training other than how to work the software! No explanations about how to actually do the things you are asked to do!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to figure out who is in charge of what, and make it clear to your staff who it is they actually need to approve the changes you ask them to make. It's very unfair to present a change to your staff member to make, and then have them get in trouble because you didn't clear it with the appropriate manager.

    I have been working at University of Missouri

    Pros

    high quality research, good town, many departments and colleges with good collegiality. reasonable pay, flexibility, intellectual freedom about most things.

    Cons

    Some departments have difficulty in communications, atmosphere overall is very competitive. Difficult in times of poor economy, low level of job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    there needs to be more open, tranparent communication between researchers and staff, and more support for graduate students, as well as faculty who teach.
