    I worked at University of Missouri part-time

    Pros

    It's a university so you get all that comes with that. Rec center, etc. Department was pretty laissez-faire as far as what I wanted to do in the classroom.

    Cons

    None really. The pay is okay for a grad student working part-time. Nothing luxurious, but enough to get by.

    Pros

    Laid back yet challenging environment with a great amount of opportunities for professional development and ongoing education. MU is a great professional community and the many departments/divisions all respect and work together to ensure collaborative relationships. Flexible work schedules and a great appreciation for work/life balance.

    Cons

    Pay ranges are not typically great for staff/exempt staff. Unless you're faculty or in a senior position, it's likely that you will not be compensated for the amount of work you do. There are minimal raises.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep quality professionals who are knowledgable in regulation/compliance, an increase in pay rate may be necessary. Take the time to sit down with your staff to discuss future goals and how it's possible to obtain a promotion/raise.

    Pros

    Convenient in location, Teachers are well educated and caring, the program gets you prepared for real world experiences as a nurse.

    Cons

    Technology not as new as other nursing schools within the area. Study rooms close early on campus making it hard to find a place outside of home to study on late evenings or weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Nursing students should be able to have access to Seton Hall for studying purposes.

    Pros

    beautiful campus, so many wonderful things happening. Most departments are casual. There are many perks: Tuition discounts for family members, pretty good benefits (although they keep getting smaller).

    Cons

    While many colleagues are innovative and inspiring, about half of the people appear to be going through the motions and are satisfied with the minimum. Unless you are an upper level executive, the system consistently underpays and under appreciates.

    Advice to Management

    Need to find a way to grow a heart again. With all of the "rah rah" school spirit that echoes through the hall, you need to realize that the big business still needs to value the faculty/staff.

    Pros

    The people are awesome. They are very friendly and keep the workplace lively.

    Cons

    There is some lack of communication between departments. Most communicating is done through email, which is very slow.

    Advice to Management

    Need a better chain of command. There are too many supervisors, so it gets confusing who reports to whom.
