    I have been working at University of Missouri

    Pros

    The opportunity to be apart of one of the country's best universities. Columbia is an amazing town and the atmosphere on game day is unreal.

    Cons

    Budget cuts, other governmental spending cuts, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to treat your employees the way you currently do

    I have been treated disrespectfully by a boss who plays favorites and penalizes those who she simply does not like.

    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.

    Former Employee - Facility Coordinator in Columbia, MO

    I worked at University of Missouri full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice perks of working with Rec Services. Very good training programs. Lots of social functions and student development activities. Lots of conference attendance allowed.

    Cons

    Very rigid and fixed system of doing things. Very stuck in tradition. Do not utilize peoples experiences and expertise as much as they should. Communication not always made clear on what is expected. Opportunities for personal professional development is minimal and narrow to those that benefit only the department. Pay is far below what work is being put in for time alone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to listed to your front line staff and hold more focus groups with input from students and coordinators across the board to make sure all are on board and in agreement through one collective voice. Involve your members as often as you can to gauge honest feedback vs skewed and less then helpful surveys.

    I worked at University of Missouri part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employers worked around class schedules very well. I worked for 4 years in different IT departments and all were well ran for the given resources.

    Cons

    During the beginning and end of semesters it is a madhouse almost everywhere. Especially being a student while working can really stretch a person thin.
