    Current Employee - Clinic Nurse in Columbia, MO

    I have been working at University of Missouri full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    weekends and holidays off and average amount of vacation time earned.
    perks such as discounts on tickets to local sports events, theme parks

    Cons

    no education opportunities despite the fact that it is a "teaching hospital".
    company values the almighty dollar more than patient care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your priorities. It does not matter how it looks --- what matters is how it is. Poor patient care is poor patient care regardless of what image we have given the public.
