The University of Missouri views its graduate students as grant and patent generating workers rather than as students.

Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) Columbia, MO

ProsThey do provide decent classroom instruction as well as adequate research facilities. A few of the tenured professors are genuinely concerned with student learning.

ConsThe organization cares very much about the revenue that a student can help bring in by working on grant-funded research. However, very little effort is made to ensure that students graduate on time or that they have decent career prospects. As a result, I know many students who finished with a PhD who can not find jobs.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more heavily in career development for your graduate students. Using graduate students as underpaid techs is a short-sighted strategy that will harm the image and reputation of the institution.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
