I have been working at University of Missouri full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

There are lots of faculty to potentially work with. Cost of living is cheaper than most.

Cons

no one has funding right now, department seems to blame students for all problems rather than evaluating what the department may be doing wrong

Advice to ManagementAdvice

manage the funding better in order to take care of the students

    Pros

    Work well with your schedule to make sure you have hours where you need them.

    Cons

    Management doesn't address known problems, often making things even worse.
    No incentive to stay in a job, as the raises are insubstantial or nonexistent.

    Former Employee - Tutor in Columbia, MO

    I worked at University of Missouri part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The hours are flexible, the pay is more than fair, and you get to manage yourself. If you like helping others with their problems, this is an ideal job.

    Cons

    Over the past two years, I didn't really run into anything that I disapproved of. I suppose the only problem I had was that sometimes a session would get packed with too many students and it was difficult to help everyone a fair amount, but this was not a big issue very often.
