    Research Assistant

    Research Associate (Former Employee) Oxford, OH

    ProsDefinitely a friendly atmosphere and helpful professors. The Chemistry and Biochemistry departments are well staffed, but the Kinesiology department lacks quality professors.

    ConsYou are in the middle of the cornfield of Ohio. You cannot stay in Oxford for more than several years without it getting old.

    Miami University Business School

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsYou learn an incredible amount of useful information, but you may take some business classes that are not your strengths. The professors are at the top of their field and have great insight as well as they are willing to help you out.

    ConsVery demanding and rigorous!! Some professors are more lenient than others.

    Wonderful people, wonderful work experience

    Intern (Current Employee) Oxford, OH

    ProsThe atmosphere is professional, but relaxed. The people are all super friendly and always willing to help out with anything you need.

    ConsMiami does not always seem to value their diverse populations, which can be seen in the lack of funding for the Office of Diversity Affairs and GLBTQ Services when compared with Farmer-related offices, Greek life, etc.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize that students are the future of the university as are new faculty and staff members, so treat them as if you truly value their opinions.

    Great experience overall

    Visiting Assistant Professor (Former Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    Prossolid, stable place to work, politics depend on the people. Great benefits, nice people overall. Tends toward white, hardworking, middle-class suburban rather than urban/cool, but that's to be expected

    Conspay is not great; academia typical but still on low end. It's a fairly conservative campus overall, though there are real pockets of diversity; Oxford is a very small, student-dominated town. Too much drinking

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay and retain more professors; less adjuncting. Smaller classes.

    Conssalary low, not much flexibility in work-life balance, promotions or creativity at work

    Advice to Senior Managementlook at organizational strategy and hr strategy, and align the salaries with industry standards!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
