    I worked at University of Missouri St Louis full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you have children, you can get a reduction on tuition.

    Cons

    As an employee I found that the University was more concerned with keeping the campus in Columbia happy then caring about taking care of the St. Louis students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow a pair!!!!

    I have been working at University of Missouri St Louis

    Pros

    Helpful colleagues, pleasant work environment

    Cons

    I'm an adjunct, so the cons are those which pertain to the national conversation about adjunct/contingent faculty in higher ed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider reviewing adjunct work policies and pay. Taking part in the national conversation on this topic would be appreciated by the adjuncts, many of whom are graduates of the program.

    Work Study Position

    I have been working at University of Missouri St Louis part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of time to do homework, and schedules can be flexible. Unlimited access to a working computer with WiFi is always a perk.

    Cons

    Severe lack of communication from management, student workers are not valued since they know you can no longer work upon graduation. The jobs are largely what you make of it and hoping you get along with co-workers.

    I worked at University of Missouri St Louis full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people and a new marketing campaign that will help the University shed it's reputation of being a commuter school.

    Cons

    Lots of Silo's - working independently and moving money from bucket to bucket around the organization. 5 years to vest in the "pension"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the marketing and try to bring the university together under a singular or common goal. Try to get rid of the everybody for themselves attitude. Also, reach out to the local school district. It is a shame to have the Normandy school district failing next to the regions largest university.
