    Pros

    Everybody is extremely friendly and willing to help if you ask
    Columbia has a lot of great restaurants (surprisingly)
    Work is flexible and administration is willing to work with you no matter when it is that you request for several days off

    Cons

    Everything IT. WiFi, websites, online training, it all needs a lot of work

    Pros

    There are some very nice and hard working people at the University Club.

    I have been working at University of Missouri (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work-life balance is very good.
    The job is very stable. I think it is kinda hard to get fired here.
    After all, there is no real competitor.

    Cons

    If you want to learn new technologies, this is not the ideal place.
    If you want to do something creative, this is not the place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn technology or just find a good one with decent knowledge to manage your team.

    Small department run by a bunch of old white men.

    I worked at University of Missouri

    Pros

    Department is fairly hands-off. As long as you get research done, you are fine. No one cares that much about teaching, unless if it generates the department money.

    Cons

    Department does not seem that interested in improving its rankings or reputation. Faculty are not that around much, but not that helpful when they are around.
