    Former Employee - Work-Study Student in Kansas City, MO

    I worked at UMKC part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Pays better than most work-study departments on campus.
    Dean's office staff is friendly and open to questions and discussions.
    Easy to request time off for class-related issues.

    Cons

    Someone doesn't understand how to turn the coffee pot off after it's empty - routinely cleaned burned coffee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It has become more difficult to get work-study on campus even if you had it the prior year. The work-study allocations seem to be an arbitrary system with little transparency.

    I have been working at UMKC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people were great and the work was fulfilling on some levels. It seemed that once you got into the system they made room for you in another department if you didn't work out in your current position. There was a great pension program and the educational discount was wonderful.

    Cons

    Performance management was non-existent and moral for potential high performers was very low. Compensation was well below the average for this area as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in a peformance management process and hold people accountable.

    Good Place To Grow

    I have been working at UMKC

    Pros

    One of the best places for a student programmer to work on as a part timer. Other full time employees are very helpful and supportive. A great exposure to variety of projects with admin level privileges. You can learn as much as you can look

    Cons

    Even though there seems to be a lot of projects work flow seems to be moving at a slow rate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One more part time job can bring on a lot of difference to work flow.
