    I worked at Mississippi University for Women part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    For the students it's cost efficient, friendly, & easy to make friends and meet new people. Better student, faculty, and staff relationships/interaction. Faculty/staff receive excellent benefits/compensation.

    Cons

    The name is not as well recognized as Mississippi State University & The University of Alabama, but its still an accredited university and it costs less for students to attend which is more appealing in the current economy.

    Pros

    At the nursing building, it's more of a part time 9-5 job, so you don't have to work all day and night.

    You can get school work done when there is nothing busy going on.

    You can learn how receptionist work is.

    Cons

    It can get very boring after awhile of doing nothing.

    Pros

    Management cares about employees and supports families and workers who want to advance their education. Managers are willing to help employees work around personal commitments and encourage employees to take advantage of the opportunities the workplace offers.

    Cons

    There are problems in disseminating information to lower-level workers so all new policies are related to all that need to know. There is a high level of office politics, especially concerning upper management, and some departments are hard to communicate with to get things done efficiently and effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to disseminate all information quickly and efficiently to employees. Also, work toward better cohesion amongst departments so it is easier to get things done on a timely schedule. More staff may be required to handle the workload.
