Everyone is really nice but if I could go bback I wouldn't have worked here because of the low pay and rude atmosphere.

Supportive environment. Fulfilling work. Fits my lifestyle.

Admission Counselor (Current Employee)
Kirksville, MO

I have been working at Truman State University full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFlexibility in hours. Flexibility to decide how to break down tasks and manage my day. Positive, friendly co-workers. Most staff and faculty committed to student success and to the University mission. Administration has been working hard recently to at least keep pay rising at the same rate as inflation. Current University President is a wonderful leader, and taking the school in a great direction.

ConsMissouri state funding better than in other states, but still declining. Means higher work load with fewer people.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo direct management: Create avenues for effective and regular communication across the office. I would love to be involved in decision-making where it concerns my position and duties. Also, communicate your expectations proactively, instead of scolding when things don't go the way you envisioned internally. Most importantly, fully embrace technology as an asset you must invest in to succeed, rather than as something to do "when we get the chance."

Small town academia

Program Coordinator for Multicultural Affairs and Interim Scholastic Enhancement Experience Program Advisor (Current Employee)

I have been working at Truman State University full-time for less than a year

ProsSmall university so excellent interaction between faculty and students. Community very welcoming. Students are more likely to obtain a well rounded training for what ever discipline they enter.

ConsLocated in the middle of no-where with few amenities and horrible housing available - run down slums for students and nothing for faculty.
