    Good starting point, but the talented, ambitious people move on

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits package. College atmosphere can be fun. It seems like during the summer the work slows down across campus, so that is relaxing.

    ConsBudgets are tightening so everyone is expected to do more with less. It seems like a lot of people are unhappy and stressed, but are not willing or able to look for employment elsewhere. Bureaucracy stifles growth and new ideas.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A great place to work

    Administrative Associate I (Former Employee) Columbia, MO

    ProsThe University of Missouri - Columbia is a great place to work. It is one of the main employers in Columbia, MO. They offer flexible schedules, great vacation and sick time, and retirement benefits.

    ConsThe pay is not the best however the culture is great. They should focus more on personal growth, offer jobs where employees can move up instead of reaching a dead end.

    Enlightening and inspiring.

    Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) Kansas City, MO

    ProsI have loved having the opportunity to work on real world projects and problems. It has been incredibly educational and I have grown a lot as a person because of it.

    ConsI think one of the cons is that your educational and work experience is dependent on the faculty that teach or employ you. I believe that this can either make for a great or horrible experience depending on the faculty member.
