    Happy and Friendly Work Experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThis is a great place to work. It allows me to use my personal judgements and make my own decisions. The working schedule is flexible to accommodate classes and even my personal affairs. I always have a good time in the office. Everyone is working hard in the office. We share things together

    ConsThe whole school system wasn't running very efficient overall. The coordination and communication between departments should be improved.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Graduate Assistantship is the way to make it through Grad College

    Graduate Assistant (Former Employee) Springfield, MO

    ProsMSU is a great place to study and education level is high and constructive. Being a GA allowed me to pay for my school while making some money. I gain a lot of experiences and interacted with several people. MSU is very international so you might see a lot of Asians and people from many other countries of the world.

    ConsPerhaps it was not a good career path after finishing being a GA with 2 masters. The addition of being an international student makes it a little harder but no impossible. You gotta keep trying and applying.

    Great learning experience as a Graduate Teaching Assistant in the English Department.

    Graduate Teaching Assistant/Masters Student (Current Employee) Springfield, MO

    ProsThe English department has incredible faculty that guide you through your two years of teaching. The office atmosphere with the other teaching assistants can't really be rivaled, especially with the friendships that develop as well as the professional development opportunities.

    ConsEven though the pay for this position includes a tuition waiver, the salary was barely enough to get by. It was also hard to balance teaching responsibilities (grading, teaching, conferences) with my own class responsibilities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe only advice I would give is to pay your TAs more. The culture is great, training is helpful, and continued professional development opportunities are plentiful.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
